In February, as Darren Aronofsky was trying to find a studio to back his epic-scale take on the story of Noah, we learned that he and Ari Handel had begun working with Canadian artist Nico Henrichon to make a graphic novel version of the script. (A similar tactic was used by Aronofsky for The Fountain, in between the first unsuccessful incarnation of that film and the version that was eventually shot.)

Noah, the film, landed at Paramount not long ago. And the first volume of the graphic novel version, Noe, is already in stores in Europe. Check out the first few pages and some other info below.

First Look: Darren Aronofsky’s ‘Noah’

Last month, Darren Aronofsky was quoted as saying that he is “doing a comic book of a script that’s really hard to make and we’re going to do a comic version first and see what happens.” Many of the movie websites jumped to the conclusion that Aronofsky was working on a Batman comic book, which he would like to adapt for the big screen. We reasoned that it must instead be a project titled Noah — a big screen adaptation of Noah’s Ark that Darren has been developing since he was 13-years-old.

We now have a confirmation that it is in fact Noah. Not only that, but BleedingCool has learned that Canadian artist Nico Henrichon (who illustrated Brian K.

The book will be released in 2012, and we even have a sneak preview of some of the art from the upcoming graphic novel. Hit the jump.
