Matthew Rosenberg and Tyler Boss, creators of 4 Kids Walk into a Bank, are getting the band back together for What’s the Furthest Place From Here?, which will debut from Image Comics in November.
The series was originally teased during the 2018 Image Expo and is about a gang of children living in the ruins of a post-apocalyptic wasteland, searching for hope and vinyl. It’ll kick off with a triple-sized first issue, and they’re also planning a deluxe version that’ll include a vinyl single with new music from Jawbreaker’s Blake Schwarzenbach and California rock band Joyce Manor.
“We knew whatever we did after 4 Kids would have to be something ambitious and crazy, but we also needed it to feel like something that only Tyler and I could make,” Rosenberg said. “I feel like we really accomplished all of that here.”
Image outlines what to expect from the first chapter set in this bleak world: The world has ended. Now all that remains are gangs of children living among the ruins. But Sid believes there must be something more out there. When she disappears into the wastelands her gang will risk everything to bring her home. A story about the things that matter most- Your survival, your loved ones, and your record collection.
“Matt and I really wanted to get outside of our comfort zone with this book and build it in a new and (hopefully) exciting way,” Boss said. “Part of that was being unafraid to try something different and the other part was having a partner in Image who believed in us. Couldn’t be happier to have our weird little big book’s home be with Image.”
The first issue will cost $4.99 and come with four special variant covers. The deluxe edition will cost $14.99 and have its own exclusive cover and the accompanying vinyl single.
Future issues will also include a deluxe option with music as well, by different musicians that’ll be announced when each issue is solicited.
Here’s a look at the other three covers for the issue, by Marcos Martin, Skottie Young and Brian Michael Bendis:
