Having been turned on to Wasteland by Warren Ellis I was a little disappointed by the first collection.

This one broadened the scope of the first a little while clearing up some of the less clear aspects of it with some back story, so it is well worth getting if you were initially underwhelmed but are of a mind to persevere.

The third collection is better still, and I am now totally hooked on the individual comics and Ben Templesmith's artwork!

The story gets better 28 Mar. 2008
By Kara Stenberg - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Paperback Verified Purchase
(I write this assuming people have read the first volume)
In short, this volume continues right where the first left off with our village of Sunners captured and enslaved by the Newbeginners. We learn more about the different stories about what the Big Wet was and why it happened and how everyone may be connected somehow to A-Ree-Yass-I. We get a great, well-written chunk of back-story for Abi and Jacob as well as some interesting details about the psychotic Lord Founder Marcus. The story does a good job of elevating us from the personal level of the people of Providence to a greater, more epic story behind Michael and others that will be continued in the next volume (I hope!)

Overall, as I had predicted, the first volume of this series was simply the first chapter, the introduction to this world and characters, setting up the reader for the meat of the story to come in future installments. This second volume begins to reveal for certain who the key players are and starts unveiling their pasts and connections. There is more action, more intrigue, and the world and some of its cultures are fleshed out a bit more in this volume. This series continues to surprise me with its ability to avoid becoming trite or stereotypical, keeping its world and characters relatively fresh. Also, if it matters to readers, Abi (as a female character) remains a main character, which, as a female reader, I enjoy. We are also treated to a homosexual character, though while more of a minority than is realistic, is dealt with tastefully if a bit token-ish.

The art of the first volume bothered me in its lack of contrast, particularly in its frugal use of solid blacks. This volume is an improvement, using black a bit more, helping the panels to 'pop' a bit better.

If you even marginally enjoyed the first volume, I recommend picking up this second volume before deciding whether or not to continue or drop this series. I like this volume much better than the first, though obviously it is one continuous story and no volume can truly stand alone. The story is building nicely and I am intrigued with how everything is going to play out and will definetly be snatching up the third volume when it is released.
Apocolyptically Fantastic! 24 Dec. 2008

Wasteland is GREAT so far.
Hand drawn, retro-esque styling... reminds me of the
obscure sci-fi graphic stories of the 70's.
Worth every penny.

Missing extra's from the individual issues. 19 Aug. 2009
By Adam Hasser - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Paperback Verified Purchase
The book is good, sometimes confusing in black and white. However it's so unique you can easily get past it. It does build on the first volume and make me want to pick up the 3rd and 4th volumes.

I'm disappointed in Oni Press for not printing the covers and the Walking the Dust stories from each issues! Why not put them in the book?

That leaves me torn between making it 3 stars versus 4 stars, so I rounded up.
