Party like it’s the end of the world in ‘It’s Only Teenage Wasteland’

A high school party goes apocalyptic in a new series by Curt Pires and Jacoby Salcedo.

Y0uth writer Curt Pires and Angel Boy artist Jacoby Salcedo are throwing an epic rager at Dark Horse this winter, and everyone’s invited. Colorist Mark Dale and letterer Micah Myers are bringing the beer.

It’s Only Teenage Wasteland is the story of Javi and his friends, who decide to throw a party when his parents go out of town. And then the world ends.

“I’m so excited to be back at Dark Horse telling this story with Jacoby and our amazing team,” Pires said. “I started my career almost 10 years ago with them, when they agreed to publish Pop and things have only gotten better from there. This story is a spiritual sequel to Youth in a lot of ways, and I think fans of my work new and old will be pulled into this massive world and mystery we’re building here. This is just the first of many more exciting collaborations to come between myself and Dark Horse.”

Based on the cover, things seem to get out of hand for Javi and his pals:

Here’s the description from Dark Horse:

When his parents go out of town for the weekend, Mexican-American high schooler Javi decides to throw a party—one that’ll launch him and his buds into popularity! Or at least get them noticed by their crushes. But when things take a turn for the worse, Javi and his friends are thrust into a situation and future they could have never have prepared for.

It’s Only Teenage Wasteland has been my most favorite project I’ve worked on yet!” Salcedo said. “Curt and I really put our everything into this, and it is littered with all the things we love. The book though wouldn’t be what it is without our amazing colorist, Mark Dale and sick letters by Michah Myers. I think this book is really for everyone, especially readers who love great books!”
