Once Our Land: the story of the graphic novel continues – RCI
Once Our Land-2- Cover The story of survival in a world of human greed and deadly aliens continues (Peter Ricq)
The story of an unlikely couple of survivors in a post-apocalyptic world continues with the release of Once Our Land-2.
Vancouver artist Peter Ricq pits the humans left in 1830s Germany against alien invaders. The young girl and an unrelated older man form an unlikely team to defeat the aliens.
Once Our Land-2 picks up six years after the end of the first book
It’s taken a few years since the original novel, but fans will definitely enjoy this sequel. Ricq says he was eager to continue to see how the characters he created developed and where the story would lead.
Once Our Land’s two unlikely teammates figured out how to destroy aliens, but they need something special (can’t reveal secrets here) to do it. This rare thing is owned in abundance by a dictator, and the conflict is about securing the necessary anti-alien material and rescuing people in the scattered and isolated surviving small towns.
Making the novel is a technically complicated process requiring almost a week per page in the 100+ page novel, although now Ricq states that he has developed a somewhat faster method for future work.
This may include a third and final edition, but he notes that there may well be an animated film version coming up.
Although the official launch is scheduled for later this month, this second book in the series is expected to be available at many comic book / graphic novel / bookstore bookstores, or by visiting the website. onceourland.com directly and also visit that of Peter Ricq website.
