Lying beneath Europa's (Jupiter's moon) half-mile-thick mantle of shear ice is the only ocean in the solar system besides those on Earth. And within those cold waters could rest the key to life on Earth — and quite possibly its extinction!
It's the job of U.N. weapons inspector Nathan Kane to learn what sort of beings lie under the icy dome. But he's about to encounter resistance of the violent kind from the staff manning Earth's outpost on Europa -- and he'll like what happens even less when the long-slumbering aliens begin to awaken !

Collecting the hit miniseries by Warren Ellis, Chris Sprouse & Karl Story.

About the Author:
Warren Ellis is the award-winning writer of Transmetropolitan, Planetary, The Authority, and the writer and co-creator of the graphic novel RED, which was the basis of two major motion pictures.   He is also the author of the NYT-bestselling novels Gun Machine and Crooked Little Vein.  His newest publication is the digital short-story single Dead Pig Collector, from FSG Originals.

His awards and recognitions include the NUIG Literary and Debating Society’s President’s Medal for service to freedom of speech, the Eagle Awards Roll Of Honour for lifetime achievement in the field of comics & graphic novels, the Grand Prix de l’Imaginaire 2010, the Sidewise Award for Alternate History, and the International Horror Guild Award for illustrated narrative.

Ellis lives outside London, on the south-east coast of England, in case he needs to make a quick getaway.
From School Library Journal:
Grade 9 Up Ellis tells the story of an imminent encounter with a grim past. One hundred years in the future, UN Weapons Inspector Nathan Kane is sent on a top-secret mission to a space station orbiting Europa. The scientific crew working there has discovered ancient caskets floating in the massive, ice-covered ocean of that moon. Inside the coffins are members of a violent and ancient race of beings the ancestors of humankind who have been floating in stasis for millions of years, waiting to be discovered. But to what purpose? And what of the huge slumbering mechanical device pointed at Earth? And why is the interplanetary technology corporation DOORS so interested? With cinematic illustrations, Ellis's story rises above cookie-cutter sci-fi devices and touches on modern issues from racism to weapons of mass destruction. This book is everything a graphic novel should be tightly plotted with memorable characters, vibrantly illustrated, and a smart story that contains all the best elements of both speculative fiction and social commentary. For readers who have had enough of moody superheroes, tiny manga warriors with huge swords, and whining post-modern autobiographies, Ocean will be a perfect and satisfying read.
