Once Upon A Time At The End Of The World #11 Review:

In the kick-off to the final arc of this book, the world is closer to ending than ever before. But will Maceo and Mezzy reconcile before it all blows up? Not only that, but Nick Dragotta moves to prime artist for the book now that we’ve jumped to the “future” with Alexandre Tefenkgi providing art for the flashbacks.

“[This was] one of our top books of last year,” said host Alex Zalben, adding that this issue, “is really delving more into the arc of a relationship. Really curious to see where it lands here, [as it] feels to be a little bit like what happens when you see your old lover again after years, and how does that affect you… I’m curious what the final statement of this book is going to be.”

Pete LePage added “this is punching above its weight class in such a glorious way… This Post-Apoc love story is real… It’s insane and all over the place. But there’s a realness to this love story and the kind of ups and downs of it that you can really feel.”

Justin Tyler agreed, adding, “I love this book. The central metaphor is so smartly done and unspooled in a way that keeps catching me off guard. The Nick Dragotta art transition here is great. I like the details we’re getting and the turnabout from both of our characters is setting up for a great confrontation.”

Once Upon A Time At The End Of The World #11 Official Synopsis:

From their initial meet cute in the wasteland to the paradise oasis they built in adulthood, everything in Maceo and Mezzy’s story has led to this. Torn asunder by the events of the critically acclaimed Book Two, each faces old age and the unforgiving end of all things, isolated on a planet breathing its last breaths. But fate has other plans for these star-crossed lovers, and they will be reunited one last time… with nothing less than the fate of the entire world at stake.
