Based on the acclaimed animated film Amaqqut Nunaat: The Country of Wolves, and adapted from a centuries-old traditional Inuit folktale, this visually stunning graphic novel takes readers on a mysterious adventure with two brothers who become lost on the sea ice. It begins as an average hunting trip for two young men, but when they find themselves lost, the only safe haven to be found for miles—a mysterious village filled with the sounds of drum dancing and revelry—turns out to be even more dangerous than the frigid ocean.

Praise for Amaqqut Nunaat: The Country of Wolves:

The Country of Wolves, Neil Christopher’s haunting short, uses a spare, fable-like set-up—two brothers lost in strange and icy climes—to stage an exhilarating hand-drawn chase that manages to simultaneously evoke The Fast Runner and The Howling.” The Grid
