It’s Only Teenage Wasteland: Dark Horse’s New Series Poses the Question of “Where Will You Be When The World Ends?”
Dark Horse Comics has announced a new series titled It’s Only Teenage Wasteland. The four-issue coming-of-age post-apocalyptic limited series follows a young high schooler who throws a party hoping to launch himself into popularity but instead find themselves on the brink of the end of the world. Now the teenagers must face a future no person could have prepared them for.
The limited series will be penned by Curt Pires, with art by Jacoby Salcedo, colors by Mark Dale, and letters by Micah Myers. The first issue in the series will feature a variant cover by artist Antonio Fuso.
Dark Horse‘s description of the series reads:
“When his parents go out of town for the weekend, Mexican-American high schooler Javi decides to throw a party—one that’ll launch him and his buds into popularity! Or at least get them noticed by their crushes. But when things take a turn for the worse, Javi and his friends are thrust into a situation and future they could have never have prepared for.”
Pires shared in the press release their hope to have both old and new fans be pulled into the world they are creating, saying:
“I’m so excited to be back at Dark Horse telling this story with Jacoby and our amazing team. I started my career almost ten years ago with them, when they agreed to publish POP and things have only gotten better from there. This story is a spiritual sequel to YOUTH in a lot of ways, and I think fans of my work new and old will be pulled into this massive world and mystery we’re building here. This is just the first of many more exciting collaborations to come between myself and Dark Horse.
IT’S ONLY TEENAGE WASTELAND has been my most favorite project I’ve worked on yet! Curt and I really put our everything into this, and it is littered with all the things we love. The book though wouldn’t be what it is without our amazing colorist, Mark Dale and sick letters by Michah Myers. I think this book is really for everyone, especially readers who love great books!”
It’s Only Teenage Wasteland #1 will be available at your favorite local comic shop and digitally on December 7th, 2022. Check out the covers below:
