    Probably too much to ask but I think I would really, really like an Omnibus collection of this series.

    Three double-length issues (one of them in colour), 57 regular-length issues, 50 Walking the Dust entries, 25 WTD illustrations, 60 colour pages for a cover gallery... You're looking at 1600-page book, that would be a nightmare to print and bind, and would have to cost something like $150 retail. Much as it's a lovely dream, I fear it'll remain a dream

    Ha! I guess with Kickstarter at least we'd know right away if there was enough actual demand for it

    Not sure, but I anticipate it being either late this year or early next. Bearing in mind there'll be 5 hardcover volumes in all, and the series will end early next year, so I don't imagine either of them being very far out.

    I'm really enjoying Umbral and The Fuse, but I felt I was too far behind to start this while it was running. Methinks it's time to catch up.

    I too discovered Wasteland pretty late. I really enjoy it, but being only 12 issues in with another 4 years worth to go is definitely a bit daunting. I'll keep at it though, it's exactly the type of comic I love. Plus, I like supporting Oni press.

    I only discovered Wasteland this past month. I just love post apocalyptic themed comics and movies so when I found Wasteland it's exactly the type of comic I love too. Went out and bought the first 3 volume hardcovers and they're just beautiful. One of the great things about getting into a series late is you can get the volumes and binge. I really love the deluxe formats and omnibuses that publishers are putting out these days. Can't get enough of them.

    I've definitely contemplated the idea of doing QUEEN & COUNTRY-style shorter compendiums, with around 10 issues in each, once the series is done. Something like that might feel less daunting to new readers, which is certainly an issue.
