Translator's blog, with picture samples.

Sergei Savelnikov and his research colleague Amrita Desai are trying to explain the cause of the destruction of a ruined city submerged off the coast of India. Kari Alanen is investigating sotutions to the melting of the continental ice sheets and makes a disturbing discovery while vacationing in the Caribbean. Susan Cheng and her team in Greenland are also studying the glaciers.

Amrita believes that the ancient accounts of Atlantis, the Flood, lost civilizations and seven sages being saved in the ark seem to have something to do with all of this. From these seemingly unrelated observations a frightening picture begins to take shape of a future that is already knocking at he door.

This skillfully dramatized and visualized graphic novel, based on the book of the same name by Risto Isomäki, is charged with hard fact, spine-tingling action and a stark view of the possible fate of mankind.
