This comic starts off in Southern Louisiana, 82 years after an apocalyptic event known as ‘the Fall’. There were survivors, and what’s left of the land is a withered, ravaged landscape of wreckage and mutant crawfish.
Most people in this small village in Louisiana have come to accept the way their lives are. Until a newcomer shows up, looking for a crew to help her on an adventure to find a power source. Now they find themselves traveling l through dangerous areas, to reach the even more dangerous New Orleans.
I immediately found Sally to be likable, she’s sassy, tough, sarcastic, slightly crazy, and has a dry sense of humor. So far she is the one who stands out the most, but I can’t wait to get to see how the other characters develop.
This was an enjoyable read, a nice start to an adventure in an apocalyptic world, and I can’t wait to see what happens next. Sally of the Wasteland #1 is on sale now, issue #2 comes out on September 3rd.
