La Compagnie des glaces

From Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia

La Compagnie des glaces ("The Ice Company") is a series of 97 post-apocalyptic science fiction novels by the French writer Georges-Jean Arnaud, published between 1980 and 2005.

Its setting is the Earth of the far future, covered by ice and governed dictatorially by railroad companies. In addition to science fiction, the novels also exhibit elements of crime and spy fiction.

The series was adapted, in part, for television (Grand Star), and as a comics series. It also inspired a video game (Transarctica) and an anime series (Yoshiyuki Tomino's Overman King Gainer).

Novels

All novels were published by Fleuve noir. The first volume received the 1988 Prix Apollo. It is the only one to have been translated into English, in 2010, as The Ice Company (ISBN 978-1-935558-31-6).

Adaptations

Games

Jeux Actuels published a pen-and-paper roleplaying game based on the series in 1986.

The video game Transarctica (1992) by Silmarils was inspired by the setting and plot of the novels.

Comics

Dargaud published a bande dessinée adaptation of the series, written by Philippe Bonifay. Originally projected to run for 100 volumes, the series ended after 15 volumes (covering roughly the first ten novels) because of its limited commercial success.

The setting of La compagnie des glaces also bears close similarity to that of the 1982 French comics series Le Transperceneige, adapted as the film Snowpiercer in 2013.[1]

TV series

La Compagnie des glaces was adapted as a youth television series in 2006 in a low-budget French-Canadian co-production, titled Grand Star in English. The main character, Cal Ragg, was played by Tyler Johnston. The plot of the 26 episodes that were produced is substantially different from that of the novels.

Anime

La Compagnie des glaces also inspired the 26-episode anime series Overman King Gainer (2002) by Yoshiyuki Tomino, the creator of Gundam.[2]
