We just learned about Once Upon a Time at the End of the World this week, but that isn’t stopping Jason Aaron and Leila del Duca from teaming for Once Upon a Time at the End of the World Book Two!
Maceo and Mezzy have never met anyone like each other, and they’ll need all the help they can get to survive a planet ravaged by environmental catastrophe. This epic 15-issue trilogy spans a lifetime as the dark mysteries of a ruined world and their own stark differences tear at the threads holding Maceo and Mezzy together… Will they, and the earth beneath their feet, ultimately be torn apart?
“I’m incredibly excited to be jumping into ONCE UPON A TIME AT THE END OF THE WORLD for the second arc. When Sierra and Jason first introduced me to this project, I was immediately drawn in (ahem, pardon the pun) to Alexandre Tefenkgi’s character designs and Jason’s premise. And then when I read the script, I was hooked like Dustin Hoffman in the movie ‘Hook,’” said del Duca in a press release from BOOM! Studios. “Jason and Alexandre have created two emotionally driven, engaging main characters with a supporting cast of baddies that I can’t wait to learn more about. And start drawing eventually. Is it time for Book 2 yet!?”
“Falling in love in the wasteland was the easy part. Now Maceo and Mezzy set out to create a new society from the ruins of the old. A community built upon the sacred belief that love is love, in all its many forms,” said Aaron in the same press release. “The supremely-talented Leila is bringing to life not just the story of our two lovers all grown up but also a beautiful new vision of an end-times paradise that’s fighting to keep the darkness at bay.”
Here are some images from the first series arriving in November 2022.
