WASTELAND is a monthly comic book series written by Antony Johnston and drawn by Christopher Mitten, with covers by Ben Templesmith. The series is published by Oni Press.
Wasteland takes place one hundred years after the Big Wet, a disaster that destroyed most of the world as we know it. Half the world is now covered by poisonous, rising oceans. What dry land remains is a broken, infertile world of hard ground and harder living.
“If the barren, lawless landscapes of Mad Max and The Stand made you thirsty, Wasteland should be an oasis.”
Into this world steps Michael, a scavenger who roams the wasteland, trading what he can salvage. But Michael's latest find will change his life for ever - a machine that talks in a forgotten language, supposedly giving directions to the fabled land of A-Ree-Yass-I, where mankind's downfall began.
“Radiates in about a dozen conceptual and philosophical dimensions at once... rivals Hayao Miyazaki's masterful epic Nausicaä.”
