ONCE UPON A TIME AT THE END OF THE WORLD #2 First Look

A Wasteland of Horrors in ONCE UPON A TIME AT THE END OF THE WORLD #2

Discover Postapocalyptic Peril from NYT Bestselling Writer & All-Star Artists Starting in December 2022

BOOM! Studios revealed today a first look at ONCE UPON A TIME AT THE END OF THE WORLD #2, 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, available December 2022. 

Jason Aaron and Alexandre Tefenkgi’s fable of a bleak future continues in Maceo and Mezzy’s childhood years, with nothing but Mezzy’s guidebook and her skills as a wastelander to get them through their dangerous, post-apocalyptic journey. As time passes and they endure the horrors of plastic tornadoes and frozen sludge, Maceo proves to be more than just a burden, and they make a connection where none seemed possible at first. But to their unexpected peril, they might not be as alone as they thought… 

ONCE UPON A TIME AT THE END OF THE WORLD #2 features main cover art by highly acclaimed illustrator Mike Del Mundo (Thor), and variant cover art by famed artists Frany (Grim) and Peach Momoko (Wynd).
