Alone at the End of the World:
The super heroes have fallen. The country has been divided into territories controlled by super villains. Among the wastelands lives Clint Barton, one of the few Avengers to survive the horrors of this world. But it’s been 45 years, and he’s not the man he once was. Trying to make a living anyway he can, the former Hawkeye is confronted with a startling discovery; he’s slowly going blind. With time running short, Clint realizes there’s only one thing left for him in this world, and that’s to get revenge for his fallen comrades. Rising star Ethan Sacks and artist Marco Checchetto take you back to the Wastelands in a story set five years prior to the beginning of the now-classic Old Man Logan in Old Man Hawkeye #1. And for our friends in the New York area, we’ll be hosting Ethan Sacks for an exciting signing on Thursday, January 11th! We can’t wait!
