In the post-apocalyptic world of Wasteland everything has a price and nothing is as cheap as life. Michael and Abi are the Odd Couple of the Armageddon battling the Sandeaters and the elements as they begin a deadly quest through the wasteland. It’s an uncompromising vision as seen through the grim and gritty art of Ben Templesmith and Christopher Mitten and told through the words of master scribe Antony Johnston. At long last fans check out the harvey and eagle award nominated series exclusively through comiXology as this week Wasteland joins the ranks of other great digital comics from Oni Press.
100 years after the Big Wet, Earth has been left a broken, infertile world of rock and sand.The town of Providens is like many others on the post-Big Wet planet-small, mostly illiterate, and struggling for survival. When the town welcomes a stranger named Michael into its midst, will the quiet man lead them to a brave new world or shatter what little order still exists? From the writer and artist of Queen & Country: Declassified: Sons & Daughters comes a bold new ongoing series that bends genres and conventions in a way that only comics can!
Not all the cities that survived the Big Wet are like the town of Providens. Some are like Newbegin, burgeoning metropolises that combine pieces of past societies with the new status quo. Can Abi and Jakob make it to across the wastelands to this shining light of the dark future?
