Where to buy it


Life Finds a Way is an anthology of comics about what happens after the end of the world. It asks the question, where are the helpers? How do you rebuild once the worst has happened? We want to tell stories of humanity at its best, despite dire circumstances. We want to explore how to look at an apocalypse as a problem to be solved. We want to remind people that creativity, resilience, and community are the strengths of humanity. Just because the world as we knew it is gone doesn't necessarily mean that we have to end with it.
