Royden Lepp is bringing us the final installment of Rust in February 2018.

At the center of the Rust saga is Jet Jones, a boy with a jetpack who crashes into the Taylor family farm. As Jet deals with his uncertain future, members of the Taylor family each view his arrival—and subsequent stay—in different ways.

“Rust is about loss, loyalty, love, and courage,” says Lepp. “This final volume takes place entirely in the course of one final night on the farm as each member of the family must fight for their lives and choose what they truly believe.”

Rust is a series that has taken seven years to tell, and I’m glad to see it finally reaching a conclusion.  Not only for readers, but Rust is a very personal piece of work for creator Royden Lepp.

“As I was drawing and writing the final pages of this last book I realized that not only is it likely my greatest creative achievement thus far, but probably the one that will be the most personal to me,” says Lepp, also known for his successful career as an Art Director in the video game industry. “For some reason, this book happened in a time in my life when I dealt with the repercussions of loss. Each time I sat down to write one of Roman’s letters to his missing Dad, I was really of course writing a letter to my own Dad who died a few months before volume one was released. This story is unique to a time in my life in a way that no other story will be.”
