“Tinkers of Wasteland is like Mad Max and The Goonies jumping around inside your brain and causing nothing but trouble. I love it!”
– Skottie Young, two-time Eisner Award winner.
Meteorites fell, razing entire cities, reducing civilization to rubble and leaving behind little more than a desolate wasteland. In these badlands, danger is everywhere and everything, and survival is always uncertain, but a little less uncertain if you can get your hands on some chickens.
Chickens, though, are scarce: they have been voraciously snatched up by a gang of violent transvestites, lead by a fierce drag queen, who has been charged with the absurd task of hoarding all chickens.
Also struggling to survive in this post-apocalyptic world is a group of mildly-deranged orphans, the Tinkers, who happen upon a mysterious and seemingly indecipherable map. The map gives the location of a secret bunker, one of almost mythical status among the tribes of the Wasteland. Racing to uncover the most dangerous secret of the Wasteland, the Tinkers encounter an almost endless variety of mayhem and surreal characters.
