Discover Life or Death Competition with Seemingly No Escape in February 2023

BOOM! Studios announced today a first look at ONCE UPON A TIME AT THE END OF THE WORLD #4, from New York Times bestselling and Eisner and Harvey Award winning writer Jason Aaron (Thor, The Avengers, Southern Bastards), artist Alexandre Tefenkgi (The Good Asian), colorist Lee Loughridge (The Good Asian), and letterer AndWorld Design (Something is Killing the Children) comes this ambitious creator-owned series with three unique artistic teams to take on a vision of the end of the world that’s brutal and nostalgic, whimsical and grounded… and ultimately, timeless.

The Apocalympics begin, but it isn’t fun and games–the Wasteland Rangers won’t let Maceo, a rival suitor for Mezzy, go without competing to the death! The stakes are high as Mezzy’s close connection with The Rangers’ Chieftess is revealed and Maceo seems out of his league. But there’s more than one way to save someone…

ONCE UPON A TIME AT THE END OF THE WORLD #4 features main cover and variant art by highly acclaimed illustrator Mike Del Mundo (Thor), and variant cover art by famed artists Frany (The Neighbors), and Jorge Corona (Batgirls) with colors by Sarah Stern (Plush).
