Overview

From Darren Aronofsky - the acclaimed director behind such critically acclaimed films as Pi, Requiem for a Dream, Black Swan and Noah. The Fountain follows Thomas as he feverishly travels through three distinct eras: as a 16th century conquistador battling a fierce Mayan army, as a present-day scientist searching for a cure for his wife's mortal disease and as a future explorer seeking to uncover the secrets of a dying star. The Fountain graphic novel is a sister-project to the film, which is released by Warner Bros. Pictures and Regency Enterprises and stars Tony-Award-winner Hugh Jackman (The Boy from Oz, X-Men) and Oscar-winner Rachel Weisz (The Constant Gardener, The Mummy). Using the same story as its seed but stretched instead upon the limitless canvas of the comics medium, the graphic novel provides an insider's accompaniment to the movie, providing perhaps the ultimate "director's cut."

As a graphic novel, the story was a bit tough to follow and the flashback/flashforward transitioning wasn't as smooth as I might've liked.That said, the art is the best and the most original of any graphic novel out there. Kent Williams' images pave a path for graphic novels as art beyond literature. The Fountain really made me want to check out more of his work.

A stunningly beautiful book with a powerful love story. I hope I'll be able to watch the movie soon. But even so, this book touched me deeply.

The complex and lofty story contains many relatable moments of true human emotion - fear of death, true love, the pain of hope. The art  is absolutely gorgeous, a skillful vision of loosely rendered paint and pencil. It isn't the easiest book to read (emotionally or intellectually), but it's a treasure.
