Mad Max: Fury Road has rapturous reviews… and currently no word on a sequel. But fortunately, if you’re jonesing for more Max, there’s a prequel comic on the way, and we’ve got a look at what you can expect.

The upcoming books dig into the backstory of Furiosa, Immortan Joe and Nux, and of course, explain what Max himself has gotten up to since the end of Mad Max: Thunderdome.
