BOOM! Studios shares a first look at Once Upon a Time at the End of the World #5, the final issue in the first story arc, Love in the Wasteland, from NYT bestselling and Eisner and Harvey Award winning writer Jason Aaron (Thor, The Avengers, Southern Bastards), artists Alexandre Tefenkgi (The Good Asian) and Nick Dragotta (Alien), colorists Lee Loughridge (Deadly Class) and Rico Renzi (Torrent), and letterer AndWorld Design (Something is Killing the Children).
The most ambitious creator-owned series to date 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.
Maceo is determined to prove himself the only way he knows how, and his stubbornness brings Mezzy’s ire. But the Wasteland Rangers prove too dangerous even for Mezzy, and Maceo will have to do more than a symbolic gesture if they want to make it out alive. Will love prevail… at least for a while?
Once Upon a Time at the End of the World #5 features main and variant cover art by highly acclaimed illustrator Mike Del Mundo (Thor), and variant cover art by famed artists Frany (The Neighbors), Mike Allred (Bowie: Stardust, Rayguns and Moonage Daydreams), and Terry and Rachel Dodson (Adventureman).
