>Wasteland Book 1: Cities In Dust Wasteland Book 1: Cities In Dust by Antony Johnston

My review


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.
