DUST: WITHERED EARTH This digital trade collects the complete DUST saga, previously released by Semantink Publishing and Keyleaf Comics – issues zero through six. DUST is the story of two travelers, Jim and Deborah, making their way through a post-apocalyptic world full of cannibals, mutants, pirates, mercenaries, and more, as they travel from Mexico to San Diego in an effort to change the harsh conditions of their reality.

Written by James Ninness with art by John Narcomey we get a post-apocalyptic story in a western vein.

This is a petty fast moving graphic novel which covers a lot of geographical ground, and the story moves pretty well.
In the story we get the traditional man with no name, but with a twist! He knows the people, he knows the land, but he also has ‘help’!
The cast of characters in the story is rich and varied, we get some traditional western archetypes, but we also get mixed into this the post apocalypse style characters!
There’s a good three act story here, with a very well defined beginning, middle and end – although, the ending is a nice western style which fades away into the dusty sunset.
The art is brilliantly suited to the style of story – dusty, dark and full of some excellent details. The colouring is very good and also suits the story with its tones.

This is a good read and hard to put down, it’s not something that you expect, and is different from the norm. It’s well worth buying and can be bought here
