The Wasted Lands, the exciting world created by master illustrator and story-teller, Dave Dorman and writer, Miek Bawden, now has a new online home.
The website (thewastedlands.com) will serve as the online home for all news and information related to the duo’s fresh take on classic pulp fiction. With a wide selection of stories covering different “classic pulp” genres that can be read and enjoyed independently, Dave and Mike have carefully laid out a larger scheme that enables each individual story to contribute to the grand story arc.
“It’s a massive undertaking,” admits Mike. “And it’s taken us longer than expected to get it off the ground – but with the first edition of AMAZING TALES, we’re officially on our way.”
About AMAZING TALES OF THE WASTED LANDS
Dave and Mike intend to publish their pulp magazine, AMAZING TALES, on a regular basis (possibly as much as four times a year), with each issue containing a number of stories from The Wasted Lands universe. Most of the stories will be serialized – meaning they will continue from issue to issue – which will allow the creators to tell several stories simultaneously.
The first issue (Winter 2019) introduces three main characters to readers – all of whom have appeared in previous iterations of Wasted Lands stories created and written by Dave Dorman (with additional input and creative direction from Daven’s other collaborators, Del Stone and Steve Smith).
Those first-issue stories include:
NO TIME FOR GRATITUDE – Mortal City’s toughest private investigator (known as Iguana) takes on gangs, dirty cops and a flying monkey as he tries to rescue a kidnapped child. But just who’s rescuing whom?
THE IMPOSSIBLE JOB – Exotic and brainy in one small package, M. d’Cease, the best forensic investigator in the Mortal City Force Police, didn’t think there was any job too tough to handle. Until this one came along.
SHOWDOWN AT PINE BLUFF – What could possibly make the day tougher for Edgar Wallace, one of the legendary Riders of the Outland Plain, than finding a mass murderer terrorizing a small town? How about facing off against an army of the undead.
