“The best post-apocalyptic comic being published today.”

“This book kicks seven different kinds of ass.”

“Radiates in a dozen conceptual and philosophical dimensions at once... rivals Hayao Miyazaki's masterful epic Nausicaä.”
The Onion A.V. Club

“It's hard to articulate how damned good this book is.”
Comics Should Be Good


A century ago, a disaster known only as the Big Wet destroyed society 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.

Into this world steps Michael, a scavenger who roams the wasteland, trading what he can salvage from the ruins. 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.

WASTELAND is an epic science-fiction comic book series written by Antony Johnston. It is drawn by Christopher Mitten, Justin Greenwood and others, with covers by Ben Templesmith and Mitten. The series and its collections are published by Oni Press.
