Every Generation Improves Upon the Last…Until Now.
One day all the adults died, all over the world, at the same time. Now it’s twenty years later, and the children – all grown up – are still rebuilding the world. Horses and caravans are the only thin lines connecting tiny, scattered settlements – little sparks in the great dark night. Gasoline is gone, phones long dead, television a memory. The only power in America is the New Church, the religion of the angry children, that blames the destruction of the old world on the dead adults.
In the settlement of Dallastown, a stranger comes riding in, telling a story of escape from the New Church’s unstoppable Firemen. The Church is on the march, and the world might burn again – and the only hope might be a scared teenage girl, a gunslinger keeping his secrets, and a woman of few words and long knives. Welcome to the Orphan Age.
Written by Ted Anderson (MOTH & WHISPER, My Little Pony, Adventure Time) with art by Nuno Plati (Alpha: Big Time, Marvel Girl), this collected edition includes issues #1-5 of the critically acclaimed series.
“This is a world of folks trying to do better without anyone left to really tell them what better is (or isn’t), and Anderson and Plati knock [it] out of the park.” – C.K. Stewart, Newsarama
