Your First Look at Jason Aaron and Alexandre Tefenkgi’s ONCE UPON A TIME AT THE END OF THE WORLD #1

Discover an Explosive New Series from NYT Bestselling Writer & All-Star Artists Starting in November 2022

BOOM! Studios revealed today a first look at ONCE UPON A TIME AT THE END OF THE WORLD #1, an epic post-apocalyptic series from Eisner and Harvey Award winner and New York Times bestselling writer Jason Aaron (Thor, The Avengers, Southern Bastard), artist Alexandre Tefengki (The Good Asian) with colorist Lee Loughridge and letterer AndWorld Design, about a love story at the end of the world that’s brutal and nostalgic, whimsical and grounded… and ultimately, timeless. BOOK ONE of this epic series, entitled LOVE IN THE WASTELAND, will be available in stores starting November 2022. 

Maceo and Mezzy have never met anyone like each other, and they’ll need all the help they can get to survive a planet ravaged by environmental catastrophe. This epic trilogy–each issue overflowing with 30 story pages–spans a lifetime as the dark mysteries of a ruined world and their own stark differences tear at the threads holding Maceo and Mezzy together… Will they, and the earth beneath their feet, ultimately be torn apart? 

ONCE UPON A TIME AT THE END OF THE WORLD #1 features main cover art by highly acclaimed illustrator Mike Del Mundo (Thor), and variant cover art by famed artists Alexandre Tefenkgi (The Good Asian) with colors by Lee Loughridge, Junggeun Yoon (Something is Killing the Children), Jenny Frison (Wonder Woman), and more.
