ApocalyptiGirl: An Aria for the End Times

If you’ve already had the pleasure of seeing the truly inspiring, gorgeous, and mind-boggling art of Andrew MacLean in the pages of Dark Horse Presents, Outlaw Territory, his self-published comic Head Lopper, or more recently in the back of God Hates Astronauts, well… then I’m preaching to the choir here. You’ve seen the light, as well as the skill, the power, and the grace of his art. You get it already, I’m sure!
If not, let me tell you about Mr. MacLean. Put simply, and though this sounds like hyperbole it’s true, Andrew’s a unique talent poised to change the landscape of comics. Once you see his work, you’ll see what I mean, much like John Arcudi, who first brought Andrew to my attention, did: “Andrew has one of the most boldly original visions in comics. He seems to see the world so differently from the rest of us, and that’s what makes him perfect for this medium.” Mr. Arcudi is damn right. Boldly original is what makes Andrew’s work so impressive. It’s rare. It should be celebrated, treasured.
And that’s where ApocalyptiGirl: An Aria for the End Times comes in. It’s Andrew’s first full-length graphic novel, a tale of a girl and her cat in a beautiful, damaged, deadly post-apocalyptic world that Mike Oeming calls “a mixture of Nausicca and Adventure Time.” It’s a story about survival, maintaining your sanity in the face of overwhelming loneliness, and what home means—even when your home keeps trying to kill you!
A beautiful package featuring a beautiful story, ApocalyptiGirl has an easy-entry price of $9.99
