Trapped and separated by an apocalyptic rainfall, Mike and Clara, devoted husband and wife, have sworn to find their way back to one another. But they quickly discover that the rain—and their predicament—is not what it seems. Can they figure out the grand trick that's being played on them and overcome it to reunite? In the Flood is the disturbing, surreal graphic novel by acclaimed, groundbreaking creator Ray Fawkes, author of One Soul, Intersect, Gotham by Midnight, Black Hammer ’45, and more. Collects In the Flood from the ComiXology original digital series in print for the first time. "With In The Flood, Ray Fawkes continues to experiment with comics as a language, much as he did with the brilliant One Soul. But now he adds layers of mystery and almost Lynchian genre exploration to tell a story of lost love and desperate people clinging to hope in the face growing darkness. Brilliant, challenging and beautiful."–Jeff Lemire (Black Hammer) "What a great book. Ray is always one to watch and the art here is brought to new vibrant life with Loughridge's coloring . . . highly recommended."–Jock (Batman, The Losers) "As compelling and disturbing as watching the water level inch up your body. There's nothing you can do to resist."–Kieron Gillen (The Wicked & The Divine) "We often hear of creators elevating the comics medium, Fawkes seems to have forgotten to ever come down. In The Flood is at once sentimental and unsettling, the kind of story that demands attention even after its final panel."–Michael Conrad (Tremor Dose) "A beautiful, poetic and intricate puzzle-box of a story, and one I'll be unlocking for some time to come."–Al Ewing (Immortal Hulk)

Some question God’s goodness and benevolence due to the flood that came during Noah’s time. In these lessons, we will learn the following: * God did everything to save mankind during the flood but they rejected Him. * God actually protected men from the flooding waters until man asked God to depart from them. * The flood did not come as a result of God’s omnipotent power. It was His omnipotent power that kept the flood from coming. * The flood was the result of sin and men actually brought destruction upon themselves. * In Scripture, God is often said to do the thing He only permitted. We will learn how this truth applies to the flood.
The flood did not come as a result of God's omnipotent power. It was His omnipotent power that kept the flood from coming. - The flood was the result of sin and men actually brought destruction upon themselves.

In the early days of 1937, the Ohio River, swollen by heavy winter rains, began rising. And rising. And rising. By the time the waters crested, the Ohio and Mississippi had climbed to record heights. Nearly four hundred people had died, while a million more had run from their homes. The deluge caused more than half a billion dollars of damage at a time when the Great Depression still battered the nation. Timed to coincide with the flood's seventy-fifth anniversary, The Thousand-Year Flood is the first comprehensive history of one of the most destructive disasters in American history. David Welky first shows how decades of settlement put Ohio valley farms and towns at risk and how politicians and planners repeatedly ignored the dangers. Then he tells the gripping story of the river's inexorable rise: residents fled to refugee camps and higher ground, towns imposed martial law, prisoners rioted, Red Cross nurses endured terrifying conditions, and FDR dispatched thousands of relief workers. In a landscape fraught with dangers—from unmoored gas tanks that became floating bombs to powerful currents of filthy floodwaters that swept away whole towns—people hastily raised sandbag barricades, piled into overloaded rowboats, and marveled at water that stretched as far as the eye could see. In the flood's aftermath, Welky explains, New Deal reformers, utopian dreamers, and hard-pressed locals restructured not only the flood-stricken valleys, but also the nation's relationship with its waterways, changes that continue to affect life along the rivers to this day. A striking narrative of danger and adventure—and the mix of heroism and generosity, greed and pettiness that always accompany disaster—The Thousand-Year Flood breathes new life into a fascinating yet little-remembered American story.
Nor, in Burley's estimation, had the flood changed the city's racial dynamic. The poor, ignorant, and humble ... “If I get away this time,” he concluded, “I will never come here again. ... '4 And life did go on for the flooders.
