It's a huge release week for ONCE UPON A TIME AT THE END OF THE WORLD.
Our third and final arc kicks off with the debut of issue #11, where old but still bitterly-divided lovers Maceo and Mezzy are forced to work together to try and save whatever's left of our poor, ricketed, royally fucked-up planet. Main art duties are handled by the post-apocalyptic team supreme of artist Nick Dragotta and colorist Rico Renzi. With the following covers by Nick, Ariel Olivetti and the great Jenny Frison.
This week also sees the release of the trade paperback collection of our second acclaimed arc, "The Rise and Fall of Golgonooza," which is part searing love story, part exploration of an end times polyamorous community, part gut-wrenching horror story that will leave your heart stomped into the dirt like the failed and filthy organ it is. In other words, it's a fun romp through the wasteland! The main art duties for this arc, an arc that proved to be the most challenging story I've ever written, are handled by the staggeringly killer team of artist Leila Del Duca and colorist Tamra Bonvillain.
I promise you, no matter how you've lived your life, this is a book unlike anything you've read before. It's the world's last great love story, and a story of how one moves on from ruin. Make it a part of your New Year. Cheers.

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.
Iconic artist Nick Dragotta (East Of West, Ghost Cage) joins New York Times bestselling and Eisner and Harvey Award winning writer Jason Aaron to bring this epic post-apocalyptic love story to an unbelievable conclusion that no comic book reader can afford to miss.

A suburban community is the last thing Maceo and Mezzy expected to find. As more people come to reside in this settlement called Golgonooza, it flourishes, and becomes a home for Mezzy and Maceo.
However, the cracks in Maceo and Mezzy's oasis turn to chasms as they (and the community) face their first disasters!
The chasm between them grows-quite literally-as Golgonooza's foundation crumbles and bubbles with a strange poison gas...
