The Frozen Wasteland graphic novel consists of four separate stories in one book, each centred on four main characters trapped in this Frozen Wasteland.

Major Jonathon Carson seeks out his lost son in the icy tundra of Las Vegas, Ricky Di Santos finds himself bumping into an old flame in the battlefield of a snow covered Los Angeles, Jed Giffin catches up with his self-centred sister in a freezing Dallas, and Sinead O’Brien takes to the frozen seas off Miami with a friend from her former life.

Each story examines the suffering caused in these very different settings as ordinary people try to cope in an environment where each day is a struggle for survival. Criminals, gangsters and hucksters duke it out for supremacy in this fractured, frightening and frozen future America!

Frozen Wasteland is written by Kieran Murphy with artwork by Jose Augusto (The Pact) Cano and a gorgeous full color cover from Carlos (Kade, Wolfskin) Valenzuela with a cover price of $9.95 available in this month’s Previews (Diamond Code: SEP073353).
