    I went through the images twice. I don't want to say I read this book twice coz there is nothing to read here. I just reveled in the power of the creator's imagination shining through the pages, like a mishmash of myths playing in an urban man's dream, affirming his ennui by way of their very presence. There are motifs of destruction and creation in equal measure. An artist depicting the end of the world while the world around him ends, of water in its two prominent avatars - rain and flood. Of [...]

    I have never seen anything like this before! This graphic novel has no words at all but the scratch board art tells a story in as much detail using only the pictures, colour and shape.It's about a man in New York in an unspecified time who falls on hard times. The story goes very meta when you see he is an artist and begins to draw the story you've been seeing, of the great flood and Noah's ark, causing the apocolypse in perhaps modern day New York.This was so thought provoking. I'd recommend ge [...]

    4.5 stars. Drooker channels Frans Masereel to depict 80s NYC.

    Flood! was not a book I read, it was a book I experienced. Mostly silent, Drooker creates a sweeping story with powerful illustrations. Each panel is beautiful and attempting to convey so much. The dramatic contrast of thick black lines over blinding white space helps to create an atmosphere of tension, depression and gravity. The story was beautiful, if a bit difficult to fully understand at times. With so much emotion exuding from every page, its a gripping tale. Flood! is a phenomenal example [...]

    Ilustrações magníficas do isolamento social da vida moderna com imaginação pura a brotar de cada página. Nada que o autor não nos tivesse habituado já nas capas do The New Yorker. Foi deste livro que se retiraram as ilustrações do álbum King For a Day Fool for a Lifetime dos Faith No More. Um must-see portanto.

    Wordless storytelling through evocative mostly black-and-white panels. I would not classify this work as a novel, but as three free-standing "novellas" that reference allegory and myth, and incorporate symbolism and archetype. Strong criticism of social problems, especially urban poverty and decay.

    Not my typical genre but I happened upon this graphic novel at the library and was intrigued. There are no words in this book, only beautiful art-all pictures that were created using scratchboard, a technique akin to woodcutting, where an artist scratches away ink with a razor blade. The interview with the author that was included in the book was fascinating and gave background about his life in New York which clearly inspired his graphic novel. Quite a talented man.

    I found it interesting that the foreword describing this book as prophetic regarding the struggles and destruction in New York City was written in April of 2001, a few short months prior to 9/11. The book was also created in response to events occurring in NY during the time I was born and when my family decided to move out of the city.

    Four stars only because I feel guilty about counting this as one of the books I read this year. Although I think that this book is quite brilliant, to say that it is on par with Moby Dick is a bit hyperbolic. Nonetheless, it does belongs on the "The Greatest Graphic Novels of All Time" shelf.

    Wonderful art, somber story.

    An entire book with almost no dialogue, all illustration. Interesting concept, decent execution.

    The book recounts the nightmares of the protagonist in eking out an existence in NY in the '80s. Those of us who were in NY in the 80s will appreciate the familiar images of chaos, paranoia, hopelessness. The turning point was the Tompkins Square riot - the author was actually there when it happened. NY was no longer the live and let live place it once was, after the Giuliani crackdown on any form of chaos. It started with the squeegee men - the crackdown gave the "law abiding" citizens a symbol [...]

    The work displays the journey of one man and the life that he lives over different time periods. It's a tale of destruction, of energy, and oddly enough of hope in some ways. The last chapter is the longest and the most powerful as the man creates a story about the world at its ending, while the world ends around him. It has heartbreaking depictions and a feral energy to a man calling for the world's end. The artist in the story is so obsessed with finishing his work even as the water builds and [...]

    I picked this one up after reading an article in English Journal about graphic novels for young adults. I cannot remember if this was one mentioned or if it was one I bought because it was linked to other titles that were purchased by the same people. However, it was an interesting experience to read a novel without any words/verbal narration. My purpose for my initial read was to deem whether it would be appropriate to incorporate the title into my classroom library (8th graders), and even thou [...]

    Beautiful, beautiful artwork. It blew me away the first time I saw it.In 1996, I went to NYC for a Refuse + Resist conference. Anita and I journeyed to a bookstore (I want to say it was called People's Books, but I'm really not sure) and watch Eric Drooker play the harmonica and sing while showing slides from Flood! That's where I bought my copy of this book. Eric Drooker autographed my copy.And I have to admit I was quite smitten by Mr. Drooker. However, when I had the chance to help host him a [...]

    Art Spiegelman! Frank Miller! Neil Gaiman! Allen Ginsberg all provided quotes on the back.What on earth did I just read? I'm sure there's something literary going on (even though it's purely images with no words) - the kind of stuff that art majors would rhapsodise over - something about the human condition and the oppression of the self by the city or something. I can appreciate the art. And for the most part the stories are fairly straightforward. I had a quick flick back through it after fini [...]

    Flood is a wordless novel, but if the saying is true and a picture says one thousand words, this is novel rivals Moby Dick. The nightmare sequences reminded me a lot of comic translations of Kafka stories. The character’s paranoia, fear and helplessness are at the forefront. The illustrations became especially interesting and impressive to me when I learned that they were created by carving color away, rather than the woodblock prints I originally pictured. The dream narrative is sometimes har [...]

    This was a really neat comic, the artist used no words (save one time for exclamation) and told various stories of the maincharacter all through pictures. And even more unique, it was done in only 3 colors: black, white and blue! There is the story of how our protagonist loses his job, a sort of mythos story down in the subway, and it all ends with the great flood story depicted on the counter. This is my first pictures only comic, and I really enjoyed and appreciated the storytelling done with [...]

    *4.5 starsThe art in this was absolutely stunning and different to anything I've seen before!The messages raised in this graphic novel were very thought provoking and I wanted to read it again immediately after finishing it!It's very short as there is virtually no words in the entire novel and I do wish it was a big longer! I would highly recommend this to anyone but particularly someone who is looking for a way into graphic novels.

    Flipped a few pages while I was browsing and then I was hooked! I had to take it home and finish it in one sitting not as brillian as Shaun Tan's The Arrival (I'd give THAT one a ten star if I could). But this one's definitely worth poring over again and again.

    The art in this is fantastic. I was hoping for more of a narrative from the stories, which feel more like riffs than stories, but I was taken by Drooker's drawings. The second and third stories were the most compelling to me. (The first felt as if it were moralizing too much through a series of unfortunate events.) The second moves through imagery the way a dream might and paints a damning portrait of American colonialism. The eponymous third section feels the most bleak and personal.

    Primitive scratchboard imagery makes this GN feel much older. Some of the images are reminiscent of silent German expressionist films like the Cabinet of Dr. Caligari and Nosferatu. Universal survival themes butt up against an end of 20th century NY landscape, taking things in and out of context in the three chapters that make up the book. I liked it, but had to read it twice, as I wasn't sure I got what I was supposed to the first time. Guess that makes it pretty good.

    Skillful illustrations - Drooker seems to me like a master of the graphic form. I admit to not always knowing what he was trying to say through his pictures, other than that life is difficult and wears you down - seems like there was/should have been more to it than that? Overall, I really enjoyed having to look for meaning in the art rather than being told directly through words, even if I'm not sure I always found it.

    Mr. Drooker's drawings evoke myriad emotions. For those that have never been to New York this may skew your viewpoint a little as the book makes the city feel quite lonely--dark buildings rising up into darker skies--lonely souls dwelling inside. Tragic beauty that one should experience.I got the chance to see this book in a slide show format at AK Press back when they were located in San Francisco's Mission District.

    Bryan Duffy
    New York. Dreams. HOMELESS. All these things tied into a graphic novel that spans hallucinations and time in New York City. Utterly brilliant.If you ever get a chance to see this author in person sohe has amazing presentation for his books and usually plays Harmonica to a slide projector showing his drawings.

    Alexis
    This was a really meh graphic novel for me. The art style wasn't fantastic, there was very little dialogue, and the overall story was choppy. I wish they had used the cover's style throughout the entire book, because I fell in love with this cover!

    Alison
    The story behind this book seems to be "life is hard and sad and also sometimes good." I admire the artist's mastery, but I think the scope of this book was too broad-- cosmic almost-- without much to actually say.
