So while I was musing, as is my wont, upon THE LAST AMERICAN it occurred to me that it could also be read as a riposte to another strip involving a trek across a post-nuke landscape. One Wagner was also involved in, but which was driven mainly by Pat Mills. The difference between the two approaches is telling. But I don’t tell you about that, instead I just ramble aimlessly in my irritatingly hyperbolic style. It’s “An Impossible Journey Through a Radioactive Hell…” It’s “The Cursed Earth”!
