Thirty two years ago Jacques Lob and Jean-Marc Rochette created a French graphic novel about the end of the world and the train that kept on running through it. “Across the white immensity of an eternal winter, from one end of the frozen planet to the other, there travels a train that never stops,” the graphic novel began. It was a post apocalyptic story about Earth’s last survivors living on the Snowpiercer, a train whose separate cars created a very literal class divide. The poor lived in squalor and famine in the rear of the train while those at the front lived an easy life of opulence and luxury. The exploration of the Snowpiercer’s different classes and the way it created a sustainable habitat for the passengers inside was framed through two character’s journey to the front of the train in order to meet its president.
