“In a post-apocalyptic world, three adventurous -and a little crazy- boys discover that the chickens they hunted for food are part of a horrible threat that could destroy what’s left of humanity “
Tinkers of the Wasteland, The Cool Chickens of the Apocalypse, is the first of a three part graphic novel in the post-apocaliptic, comedy and adventure genre. It was originally published weekly as a webcomic for over three years, reaching to a total of 340 pages of a refreshing manga style, now revisited and edited for the first time for the printed format.
The Earth is a Wasteland filled with hotrod cars led by a dangerous drag queen and many mutant chickens.
In the course of this frantic trilogy, the Tinkers will discover that friendship is as valuable as a good chicken broth. They’ll learn not to underestimate the power of folk music, will find that knowing how to read is a survival skill and will realize that selfishness is the real enemy and friendship the only true weapon against adversity .
Traveling through this adventure in a restored Mini Cooper from the 60’s, we see surreal encounters with aliens and mutant dolls, plus car chases, epic fight sequences, the emergence of a formidable antihero and a ominous scheme.
Inspired by the Mad Max movies, The Goonies, a good bunch of kitsch mexican pop culture, and his long stay in Japan a few years back, that is how Raul Trevino brings to us his second graphic novel, and shows us just how much fun is for him to draw cars and post-apocaliptic landscapes.
Dare to enter the wasteland and join Milla, Splitter and Chapi in their wacky adventure.
