Preview: Sally of the Wasteland #1 (Titan Comics)

Sally Of The Wasteland #1 - Cover

 

On sale tomorrow from Titan Comics in comic shops across the country is the first issue of Sally of the Wasteland, written by Victor Grishler (X-Men, Angel & Faith, Noir) and drawn by artistic up-and-comer Tazzio Bettin.

Southern Louisiana, 82 years after the Fall. The apocalypse has come and gone, leaving behind a withered, ravaged landscape of wreckage and mutant crawfish. Still, you gotta laugh, and Sally does, often using her beloved shotgun, Bertha, as the punchline!

Inspired more by lust than common sense, and by a teenage desire to protect Tommy, the object of her desires, Sally leaves her bar job and joins the deranged crew of the Mississippi Duchess on a mission into the remains of New Orleans.

Saving the remains of civilisation plays second best to keeping her sweetheart safe as our smart and sexy princess of the wild frontier runs a gauntlet of gigantic genetic freaks and roving gangs of blood-hungry barbarians!

The ever-so-cute but ever-so-slightly-insane Sally proves Armageddon can be fun!

Be warned – the published version includes some dreadful cussing, which we’ve taken the liberty of blacking out in these preview pages.
