Read full description of the books Wasteland Book 11: Floodland:It's hard to rate a 60 book series with one review, but I'll try. Wasteland captures your attention pretty quickly. As much as the classic desert post apoc setting may sound cliché at first, Johnston creates a rich universe full of creatures, myths, cultures, religion and strange powers. Michael is a mysterious character from the start, and a symbol of a dying world. Abi counter balances him as an optimistic and energetic lead character, but who has also had her share of pain.
I think the series has had its ups and downs. When Christopher Mitten stepped down, it was really hard to continue reading. His art is utterly fantastic, capturing the mood of the world as no other. Greenwood also does a good job, but some of the other artists are just plain bad. As for the story, I was sometimes sick of the political stuff going on at Newbegin. It took too long at times. The catholic city arc was also a little tedious, with the protagonists kicking asses as if they were comic book super heroes, which, ironically, they are not. Oh, and deciphering the sand eater language was a major pain in the ass, but I can understand that some people dig this.
The final crescendo of the saga, however, is one of the best I've ever read in comics. The explanation for Adam, the children and the big wet is really well told. Johnston leaves no unanswered questions, and Mitten returns with a glorious art that perfectly illustrates the epic finding of Adam, and his awakening.
Despite some of the shortcomings, I'll rate it with five stars. The story and characters will linger in your head longer after you finish reading it, and for me this is the sign of a good book.
