    You don't read WASTELAND. The way I know that is that not enough people read WASTELAND, and if everyone reading this read WASTELAND its sales would be three times the level they are now.

    WASTELAND is probably the only other post-apocalyptic comic written by bald Englishmen that you should be reading right now. They have a website and everything -- including Antony Johnston's soundtrack for WASTELAND, even, which is a wonderful idea.

    They've also got the entire first issue up there, for free, in three different formats.

    And if you like that, there's five collections to be had, with delicious covers by my own mate Mr Benjamin Witchity Templesmith of the Australian Colony.

    Groovy. WASTELAND is VERY good. Been following it for awhile now.
    Thank you!
    I'll pass this along to a certain enclave of scavengers I know.
    I've mentioned it to them before but I'll gladly remind them of it.

    Wasteland is great.
    Just brought Vol. 5 home from the shop.
    Have some reading to do tonight.
    Thanks for stamping it with your mighty approval.
    NOW DO WHAT HE SAYS AND READ WASTELAND!

    I am guilty of currently not reading Wasteland, when finances got tough it wasn't something I was able to keep up with in trade, but once I do have money I will be picking up Volume 3 and move onward. Though now I will be telling random people they can read the first issue for free now. It is a very damn good series.

    I like this and will now put it on my to-get list.

    My oversized hardcover copy just got shipped today. I'm a slut for Wasteland, since I already have the five trade paperbacks that're out. I'll probably sell or give away the three that the HC will replace.

    I _do_ read Wasteland. Mittens's art is gorgeous. Have the hardcover Apocalyptic Vol 1 plus the other TPBs.

    Much wootage for Wasteland. ^_^

    WASTELAND is a wonderful story. Also, the The Apocalyptic Edition Volume 1 is a thing of beauty.

    Have all the singles. I'm a bit concerned for this title as it's very late and only has 2 issues left that have been solicited back in the AUG Previews. Hope it's not cancelled.

    The other day Antony said, on his website, which is frankly not hard to find and you really have no excuses:

    ...and this is probably as good a time as any to apologise for the delay of issue #27. It’s due to personal circumstances outside of our control, and that’s about as much as I’m prepared to say. Rest assured that no-one is more frustrated about the delay than us, but these things happen, and we beg your patience for a few weeks more.

    Curling up with the first five issues now, as I waffle about dragging my carcass out to some abysmal New Wave club night, just to see some old friends.

    May just say fuck it, finish the five issues and move on to Milligan's "Egypt" which is also screaming to be read.

    I did see that Warren. However that quote only accounts for #27 not the future of the series which was the main point of my post.

    Soarer: you're worrying over nothing. WASTELAND is fine, our future is assured, and we're taking it all the way to the end. This book is my labour of love, and I'm seeing it through come hell or high water.*

    We haven't solicited beyond those issues yet because, unlike some publishers and creators, we don't like to solicit issues we know we can't ship on time. As I said on my website, #27 is delayed, but coming as soon as we can, and once we've crossed that hump we all hope that we can get back on track. I believe, in fact, that #30 is to be solicited in the next PREVIEWS catalogue. If the series was cancelled, we'd tell people — especially if it was happening within the next two issues (!)

    *Or, indeed, Big water...

    Allen: Actually, WASTELAND #1 has been free on the web for about three years, now :)

    Oga: The HC only covers the issues from the first two trades, not three.

    Also, Warren: Thanks for starting this thread.

    Soarer: I know you're very excited to be on the internets and all, but thinking before posting is encouraged on Whitechapel. Thanks.

    Hey Anthony -
    Cool you're checking in. I mentioned it up-page, but WASTELAND is great. One of my more favorite books.
    Thanks for it.
  9.  (7301.19)
    Antony: Thanks for answering my question, looking forward to what's coming up.

    Warren: I'd expect nothing less then those little quick shots from you so I'm going to take it because I respect you and your work. Won't happen again sir.

    And, yes, thank you to everyone in this thread who's either reading or said they'll give it a try. WASTELAND isn't your average post-apoc story, and certainly isn't for everyone, so we fully appreciate every reader we have.
