With the release of Debris #4, Kurtis J. Wiebe and Riley Rossmo are once again closing a chapter on another successful collaboration. The epic finale to this well-written, and beautifully illustrated, junk-punk series follows Maya as she clashes with Raven, the leader of Athabasca, and leads the Athabascan Tribe to victory in a massive battle between humanity and the Colossals; more specifically, the wasteland dragon spirit, Nogo.
Keeping up with the speed of the previous installments, Wiebe and Rossmo continue to approach the narrative with an accelerated pace that delivers until the very epic end. It’s just a shame that it’s over. READ MORE
With only one more issue ready for release next month, Kurtis J. Wiebe and Riley Rossmo’s Debris #3 perfectly sets the stage for the epic finale to this well-written, and beautifully illustrated, junk-punk series. Following the last installment, Maiden outcast, Kessel, joins Maya in her quest to find the legendary water source located in Athabasca, in hopes of saving the last human tribe on earth. As the story progresses, however, it becomes abundantly clear that Maya and the rest of her tribe aren’t the only humans left in this post-apocalyptic world. READ MORE
Following the first issue of a new, four-issue, mini-series by Kurtis J. Wiebe and Riley Rossmo, Debris #2 continues with Maya settling into her new role as Protector of Maiden. After Jormungand destroys the village’s only water maker, Maya leaves Maiden behind to carry out Calista’s final request to find Athabasca—a legendary water source, the last one in this post-apocalyptic, dystopian wasteland, that could ultimately save her people. What she encounters along the way is a more ferocious “breed” of umbra, and a past villager of Maiden with a vague history with her fallen mentor. READ MORE
“Green Wake” collaborators, Kurtis J. Wiebe and Riley Rossmo are back with a new emotionally driven miniseries titled, “Debris”. Unlike their previous series, “Debris” tells a story sans that prominent backdrop of an ongoing, noir-style murder mystery, infused with dense mythology and metaphor. This time around, Wiebe and Rossmo grasp the concept of a short, four-issue mini-series, and take on a futuristic world where Collosals rise from stock piles of garbage that cover the planet. The creative team approaches the narrative with an accelerated pace that does not fail in providing its readers with a satisfying first issue. This is a brilliantly executed comic through the addition of Owen Gieni, who was brought on board to colour the series, thus bringing to life Wiebe’s words, and brightening Rossmo’s stylistically lurid and gritty artwork.

Wiebe and Rossmo teamed up to bring us one of the year’s best horror comics with “Green Wake”, and though the series saw an unfortunate early cancellation due to low sales (despite the rave reviews), they are back together this July with Debris. The book sounds nothing like “Green Wake” other than the fact that the dream team is back together, and for that we couldn’t be happier. “Debris” is set in the distant future, a time where the world has wasted away and the spirits of old have come back to ravish the world once and for all. One rough and tough girl quests to save humanity in the midst of the chaos. Yeah, it sounds awesome as sh*t. You can expect some insane creature designs from Rossmo and top notch storytelling from Wiebe as “Debris” hits this summer from Image Comics. Check the preview after the jump. READ MORE
