While fans wait for Mad Max: Fury Road to debut on Blu-ray and DVD September 1, DC Comics' Vertigo imprint is publishing new comics that give fans insight into what happened to Max Rockatansky (Tom Hardy) just before the events of the movie. Today, Vertigo publishes Mad Max: Fury Road - Mad Max No. 2, which brings this monthly series to a close, stories that also align with the franchise canon. Take a look at the official synopsis for this comic below.
"Left for dead and his V8 Interceptor stolen, Max Rockatansky sets out to retrieve it...heading straight into the bowels of the sunken city with nothing but his sawed-off shotgun. But the stakes are much higher than the fate of Max's ride - an innocent girl, Glory, has also been kidnapped by the depraved Buzzards. By the time Max arrives, it may already be too late..."
The comic was written by Max Max: Fury Road filmmaker George Miller, along with Nico Lathouris and Mark Sexton, the latter of which also provided the artwork. Before you go out and pick up this comic, The Los Angeles Times has the first seven pages that you can check out below. For those who want to know what happens to Max after Mad Max: Fury Road, we may be seeing that soon on the big screen.
As for the movies, George Miller has confirmed that he already has a script ready to go for Mad Max 5, entitled Mad Max: The Wasteland. The filmmaker had finished working on the script throughout the several production delays on Mad Max: Fury Road. The filmmaker originally wanted to make two movies back to back, Mad Max: Fury Road and Mad Max: Furiosa, which would have surely centered on Charlize Theron's Furiosa character. It isn't known if Mad Max: The Wasteland will incorporate elements of Mad Max: Furiosa or not.
Vertigo has also published comic books featuring Mad Max characters Furiosa, Immortan Joe, which are currently available for purchase at VertigoComics.com. There will also be a Mad Max: Fury Road graphic novel debuting on August 26, so stay tuned for more on that. While we wait for more details on the sequel, you can check out these comic book images below.
