The Fountain is a graphic novel illustrated by Kent Williams published in 2005 by Vertigo Comics, based on the original script of Darren Aronofsky's film The Fountain. The graphic novel was a way to salvage something from the film project, whose first production was cancelled. As Aronofsky said, "I knew it was a hard film to make and I said at least if Hollywood fucks me over at least I'll make a comic book out of i. Later, the film project was resurrected by Warner Bros.

Darren Aronofsky is the critically acclaimed director of Pi and Requiem for a Dream. Kent Williams is one of the comics industry's most respected painters. The Fountain is his first major comics work, though he is a keen comics fan, and has been involved with several comic movies including Batman Begins and Watchmen.

Darren Aronofsky's graphic novelization of his film "The Fountain". Kent Williams is just superb, although his mixing styles does occasionally lead to some confusion in recognizing the characters. Aronofsky thought he would never get the film made, so he contacted Vertigo Comics to express the story in a paper medium, as he couldn't just let this project go. The film eventually got the green the light, but Aronofsky still wrote the graphic novel. Still, I wish I could read a correctly printed copy.

This August, DC/Vertigo will release a graphic novel version by artist Kent Williams. Back in February CBR News got a chance to visit the Montreal set of Darren Aronofsky's "The Fountain" starring Hugh Jackman. During a recent set visit, CBR News spoke with Aronofsky and his writing partner Ari Handel about the upcoming graphic novel. This is Aronofsky's third and most ambitious film following the success of "Pi" and "Requiem for a Dream.

It always seems impossible until it is done.

I've been a fan of Aronofsky's since a I caught of screening of Pi (artisan) back in my university days. I'm a fan of film and the process of bringing them to the screen, so I followed the news of The Fountain's turbulent development as closely as I could. The news of the film's production being mothballed was devastating, and like Darren Aronofsky I thought it would never see the light of day. It reminded me of Terry Gilliam's struggle to bring his adaptation of Don Quixote to the screen, which incidentally is chronicled in the excellent Lost in La Mancha. So, when news started to surface that Aronofsky was developing his story into a graphic novel, I was excited because it would be his full vision, not some compromised film hamstrung by budget issues.

In the end, we ended up getting both, two different takes on a story via two very different mediums. I quite enjoyed the film, and can't imagine Brad Pitt would have brought the ambition and torment to Dr. Creo's character the way Hugh Jackman ultimately did. As for the graphic novel, it is very good, but based on the story Aronofsky wrote after he was forced to whittle his vision down for budgetary reasons. I would have liked to see that original, epic version he wrote before being made to cut it down in scope.

The Kindle version of this novel is generally well-done. Being able to read the story panel-by-panel as opposed to a page at a time is a great feature, especially on mobile devices where you'd need a magnifying glass to read the dialogue. Unfortunately, seeing each panel blown up to the size of the screen reveals that the artwork for this Kindle edition was scanned in at a resolution that is borderline unacceptable. It's not as noticeable when viewing the entire page, but zoom in and you're looking at late 90's JPEG optimized for dial-up connections. Honestly, in this age of 4K screens and multi-terabyte storage devices, the poor resolution of this title is inexcusable. Instead of being able to zoom in and each brush stroke in detail, you've got compression artifacts out the wazoo.

So, this digital edition gets four stars for the story and gorgeous artwork and two stars for reminding me of the AOL dial-up days.
Most run of the mill love stories are fruity lame half attempts at conveying a true story. The Fountain is not run of the mill and it rewards an audience with an open mind and the willingness to read or watch more than once (depending on what version of the story you are enjoying).

As a fan of the film, to me buying the graphic novel was a no brainer and if anything comes through both works is that Aronofsky has great love for this story and it was a project that was just a pain to get done.

In comparison to the movie, there are differences in the story and the strengths of film are explored in its theatrical version while the best things of a graphic novel are used in this incarnation.

As a fan of Aronofsky, I know I'm biased but as a fan of graphic novels, I know the difference between a great one and a run of the mill one. The artwork is simply beautiful and I think the art does justice to the story and vision of Aronofsky.

Now if you didn't like the movie, I'm wondering why you're even looking at this product description, much less a review from someone who is a fan. But if by any chance you got here, by all means check the previews or go to a Barnes and Noble or Borders and browse the first ten pages. If you like what you see, buy it because like some of the best graphic novels, The Fountain deserves more than one read.
[To those who are worried about getting the photo book instead of the graphic novel: no worries. As long as you order from this page--the cover being Tommy with the tree tattooed on his back--then you'll get the graphic novel!]

I got the graphic novel just 2 hours ago and have already finished it. The first thing I noticed is that the book itself is quite large: roughly 9"x12". Just like in the movie, the story is epic, lush and beautifully thought out. For the most part it's similar to the script of the movie, but goes more into detail in some parts. The only thing I'm not currently in love with is the visual style, although I knew in advance what it was going to be like. I usually prefer that the artistic style be somewhat realistic, and some of the illustrations seem flat and disproportionate. They truly come to life in large full-page scenes. As said on the back cover in small type, this is definitely meant for older readers (18+ in my opinion), as it does contain nudity (all of the space-traveler scenes) and a couple of swear words. Overall, still worth the money; it's worth paging through and retells the story we all know in a new and beautiful way.
I have read many reviews of the movie that this graphic novel is based on. I wll admit that it takes several viewings to understand the plot. This book, which was written when production stopped on the film when the large studio pulled the plug on filming, really helped me to understand the whole concept, even though it does not exactly match the movie. ***Then there is the artwork! By far, this is the most beautiful graphic novel I have come across. Kudos to the illustrator. This is something that I enjoy reading over and over again. It touches on all human emotions without making me feel that I am being led by the nose to feel them. I believe that every reader will get something personal from the story. I can't recommend this book more highly.
