rating: 3 of 5 stars
The first six issues of Antony Johnston and Christopher Mitten’s Wasteland are a bit of a mixed bag. There’s the post-apocalyptic wasteland (“I had the titular line in that” tee hee), supernatural powers and a fairly intriguing main character.
There’s also dialogue with too many made-up words (if you haven’t read the xkcd strip on this theory, do so now at xkcd.com/483/), a hokey religion of sun and moon worship and cities with pretty dumb names.
Despite all of this, there was enough drama that I am encouraged to read more. But the second volume will determine whether or not the bad parts outweigh the good ones. So far they do.
