Reprinting the first 13 issues of Wasteland, including the fan-favorite "Walking the Dust" prose shorts, this impressive tome chronicles the opening adventures of Michael, a mysterious wanderer struggling to find the answers to both his past and his future.

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?





I liked and disliked this book. I liked this whole apocalyptic story, where something had happened and now people were scattered and broken. I liked the pictures and how the story was told, all in all a very good graphic novel, in a style I enjoy.


But then there was the dislike part that really ruined it for me. I reached a point where I saw this women and thought oh she looks like this other woman, and I totally didn't get the story. Then I realized they were the same and tracked back. It seems that suddenly a flashback had started, and even though I read it again I was confused by it all. The story was suddenly very confusing. It made me want it all written down in a book, that would have been great. Not so great now.
