When the environment/climate is an actor in the story


ICE/ARCTIC/COLD

The world has one temperature... fucking cold.

WINTER WORLD

There are few better comics than this, and few more savage environments than unrelenting cold.




SAND/DESERT/DRY

The desert has many mysteries hidden, but you must survive the desert first, in order to discover the mysteries.  DUNE presents a complete universe, and a world where the environment dictates how the human culture evolved and the power structures formed.

DUNE






AND THEN

Wasteland/Unknown/Disaster

In the world of Wasteland, there is a complete mythology and legend of an event called "The Big Wet" and what that was, or is, is not yet known.  But the people left behind struggle in a world of decay, disaster and despair.

THE BIG WET

Not every environmental story involves disaster.  These two are both about jungles and I love both. 


JUNGLE/GREEN/LIFE

The world is a multi layered jungle, with layers after layers of life.  Different kinds of life contribute differently to the world. But each communicates and has different contributions.
