Steam punk does seem natural, as after an apocalyptic event - you would have to cobble together old-school technology

So between Book of Eli, After Earth, The Walking Dead Telltale games, and now Oliver, Gary Whitta is very much a post-apocalyptic guy.

I'm just mad we have to wait a whole year before the first act. I'm really active over on Tested, so I can't wait to see some actual work from Gary. Cause lord knows he does nothing over there. :P

Steampunk mixed with post-apocalyptic world...fantastic. Sure is a long time to wait though :/

This looks amazing. Can't wait to get hold of a copy!

I have never actually read a comic before, and I obviously know Gary from all of his past Whiskey Media involvement and enjoy his stuff so, this will probably be the first comic I pick up. Hopefully it's available on the iPad in some way, shape or form.

Great concept. I will check this out.

Also, GARY WHITTA!

To me at least this is the same as movie makers not being able to think of new ideas so they remake/reboot/alter older concepts. Obviously this might be great, but I'd rather see original ideas. And I seriously dislike Steampunk.

@kennyshat: Gary has said on numerous occasions that one of his favorite and most influential game was Wasteland.

So basically Darick Robertson will draw 3 and 1/2 issues and then we'll start getting shitty fill-in artists afterwards.

Well I for one am very stoked for this. I need to find a local comic store, since my old one shut down.
