BOOM! Studios has revealed our first look at the next chapter of Once Upon a Time at the End of the World. The first issue of the third and final story arc, “Not Even if You’re the Last Person on Earth“, is one of the most ambitious creator-owned series to date with three unique artistic teams to take on a vision of the end of the world that’s brutal and nostalgic, whimsical and grounded… and ultimately, timeless. Iconic artist Nick Dragotta (East Of West, Ghost Cage) join New York Times bestselling and Eisner and Harvey Award winning writer Jason Aaron (Thor, The Avengers, Southern Bastards), colorist Rico Renzi (Grim), letterer AndWorld Design (Something is Killing the Children), and returning artists Leila Del Duca (Sleepless) and Alexandre Tefenkgi (The Good Asian), to bring this epic post-apocalyptic love story to an unbelievable conclusion that no comic book reader can afford to miss, available in January 2024.
From their initial meet cute in the wasteland to the paradise oasis they built in adulthood, everything in Maceo and Mezzy’s story has led to this. Torn asunder by the events of the critically acclaimed Book Two, each faces old age and the unforgiving end of all things, isolated on a planet breathing its last breaths. But fate has other plans for these star-crossed lovers, and they will be reunited one last time… with nothing less than the fate of the entire world at stake.
Issue #11 features main and variant cover art by highly acclaimed illustrator Ariel Olivetti (Cable), and variant cover art by famed artists Nick Dragotta, Jenny Frison (Alice Never After), and Alexandre Tefenkgi (The Good Asian). Get your first look at the cover art right here:
