ONCE UPON A TIME AT THE END OF THE WORLD #1 SELLS OUT and Returns for SECOND PRINTING


“Drew me in straight away, kept me reading to the end. A hearty recommendation.” – Garth Ennis, The Boys, Preacher


“I can’t recommend (it) enough.” – Ed Brubaker, Reckless


BOOM! Studios revealed today that ONCE UPON A TIME AT THE END OF THE WORLD #1, an epic post-apocalyptic series from Eisner and Harvey Award winner and New York Times bestselling writer Jason Aaron (Thor, The Avengers, Southern Bastard), artist Alexandre Tefengki (The Good Asian) with colorist Lee Loughridge and letterer AndWorld Design, about a love story at the end of the world that’s brutal and nostalgic, whimsical and grounded… and ultimately, timeless. BOOK ONE of this epic series, entitled LOVE IN THE WASTELAND, has sold out at the distributor level the day of release!


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 trilogy–each issue overflowing with 30 story pages–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?

In response to the overwhelming support from retailers and fans, BOOM! Studios has announced ONCE UPON A TIME AT THE END OF THE WORLD #1 SECOND PRINTING, featuring art by highly acclaimed artist Abigail Jill Harding (Maw), available in stores December 21, 2022.


“Jason Aaron, along with his artistic collaborators Alexandre Tefengki, Leila del Duca, Nick Dragotta, Rico Renzi, Lee Loughridge, and AndWorld Design, have created a story that is both epic in scope and deeply personal,” said Filip Sablik, President, Publishing & Sales, BOOM! Studios. “ONCE UPON A TIME AT THE END OF THE WORLD is destined to be a perennial in every great comic shop and we just had to make sure every reader has a chance to experience this apocalyptic love story!”
