Imagine yourself in a post-apocalyptic world, where all the creature comforts that you’ve spent an entire lifetime taking for granted were suddenly gone for good. How do you see yourself reacting to such a situation? Would you “suck it up” and be stoically content?

Or would you spend most of the time cursing your fate? We all like to picture ourselves as the former, though the latter is probably a more accurate portrayal—and that’s exactly what our “hero” is like in Peter Bagge’s new miniseries Apocalypse Nerd.

MARVEL as our protagonist, an asthma ridden, myopic former middle manager for a software company, has his limited survival skills continually put to the test, only to continually come up short! THRILL as his dumb childhood friend Jeff Beasley bullies him around, as he abuses his newfound status as the undisputed alpha male of the two!
CRINGE as what’s left of human civilization continually deteriorates around them, and they along with it!

“Apocalypse Nerd is an attempt to make light of my own worst fears, as in how I’d react in the wake of a nuclear holocaust,” commented creator Peter Bagge. “I don’t think the comic is TOO accurate in that regard, since I doubt I’d survive for more than a day, but that wouldn't make for a very interesting story, would it?”

Each issue will also feature a backup story detailing poignant yet humorous anecdotes about America’s Founding Fathers. Finally, George Washington and his gang will be starring in comics of their own!

Apocalypse Nerd is a six-issue quarterly series that begins in January with a retail price of $2.99. Edited by Dave Land.
