Format: Hardcover
Set on an earth that has been nearly destroyed by a cataclysmic event known as the Big Wet, Wasteland is an epic ongoing series from write Antony Johnston and illustrator Christopher Mittens, published by Oni Press. It's an excellent series about a stranger known as Michael who journeys to the town of Providens and joins with a small band of residents to go on a journey to find a new beginning elsewhere.

In short, it's a road book, a western-style sci-fi (some of the people also have hidden abilities). Since its inception, the series has published over two dozen issues and been nominated for a prestigious Harvey Award. This special edition, which collects the first 13 issues of Wasteland, is simply beautiful, with a gorgeous red, velvety hardcover, a gallery of covers from artist Ben Templesmith, and prose shorts. (Alternatively, the individual issues of the series are available in much cheaper paperback editions, four of which are now out, collecting the first 24 issues).

Johnston's long-ranging story sprawls out epically in Wasteland. The series will eventually end, like Lost or Battlestar Galactica, and each issue brings us closer to the final resolutions. Johnston is an expert plotter, giving away just enough tidbits each time out to keep us enthralled with the story is going but still dangling enough carrots out in the distance to whet out appetites for more. Much more.

Format: Hardcover Verified Purchase
I absolutely love this comic series about a post apocalyptic world full of mutants and strange religions and factions who have all lost the history of their own world. As the story unfolds we are slowly given clues to how this world came to be, while being embroiled in the adventures of a group of refugees seeking out a new home with the help of a stranger called Michael with abilities and a past that even he doesn't understand. I had been reading this story in the single issues and loved them, but this new series of hardcover collections just forced me to double dip - as much as I love the contents of the book, the physical packaging is both sturdy and functional and pleasing to the eye. I love this book!

Format: Hardcover
As a huge fan of the post-apocalyptic genre (in all forms), this comic was a delight to discover. The story takes place many years after the apocalyptic event, and so develops around some pretty creative concepts and ideas that few other post-apocalyptic works of fiction do, or do very well. I'm excited to continue the series and I don't think you'll be disappointed if you pick them up.

Also, the binding of this volume is very nice and is certainly collector quality.
