With all the controversy around "Snowpiercer" at the moment and the battle between director Bong Joon-Ho and Harvey Weinstein over the cut that will get released in many international territories (see the latest update here), it's easy to forget that the movie is a comic book adaptation. The apocalyptic film is based on the French graphic novel "Le Transperceneige" by Jacques Lob and Benjamin Legrand, and illustrated by Jean-Marc Rochette. Now, no matter what movie cut arrives, you'll at least get to the source material in English.

Today we're introducing Clickables as a little experiment. Sometimes it'll be short form news items, maybe some interesting or amusing video or something potentially a little less "written." We'll see how it goes, we look forward to your feedback.

Titan Comics will release an English translation in 2014 and here's the official press release along with a first look at the artwork and some sample pages.

TITAN COMICS RELEASES SNOWPIERCER – THE

GRAPHIC NOVEL THAT INSPIRED THE NEW

CHRIS EVANS FILM!

Translated from the highly acclaimed French classic, soon to be a major motion picture starring Captain America star Chris Evans!

Titan Comics is proud to announce a world-first English translation of the acclaimed French comic, in a pair of graphic novels hitting stores in early 2014 ahead of the US release of the film! Volume 1: The Escape is released January 292014, with Volume 2: The Explorers following February 25, 2014

Coursing through an eternal winter, on an icy track wrapped around the frozen planet Earth, there travels Snowpiercer, a train one thousand and one carriages long. From fearsome engine to final car, all surviving human life is here: a complete hierarchy of the society we lost…

The elite, as ever, travel in luxury at the front of the train – but for those in the rear coaches, life is squalid, miserable and short.

Proloff is a refugee from the tail, determined never to go back. In his journey forward through the train, he hopes to reach the mythical engine and, perhaps, find some hope for the future…

The thrilling original graphic novels have been adapted into an astounding new film directed by Joon-ho Bong (The Host), starring Chris Evans(Captain America), Alison Pill (Scott Pilgrim Vs. The World), Tilda Swinton (The Chronicles of Narnia, We Need To Talk About Kevin), Jamie Bell (Billy Elliott, The Adventures of Tintin), Ed Harris (A History of Violence, The Abyss, Apollo 13) and John Hurt (Hellboy, V For Vendetta, Alien, Doctor Who), and distributed in the U.S. by The Weinstein Company, and due for release in Q1 2014
