Last Pick

In writer/artist Jason Walz’s dystopian science fiction Last Pick graphic novel trilogy, aliens have conquered Earth, abducting everyone they deemed useful—and left behind the very young, the very old, and anyone too “disabled”.

Twins Sam and Wyatt are two of humanity’s rejects living under the aliens’ tyranny. And they’ve started a revolution…

“An action-packed story with compelling art and dialogue and a cliff-hanger ending…A strong pick for reluctant readers. Give to fans of Margaret Peterson Haddix’s Shadow Children series or Mark Siegel’s 5 Worlds books.”—School Library Journal (on Last Pick)

Jason Walz

Jason Walz is a comic creator and teacher working in Minneapolis, Minnesota. Born in the south, he bounced around between Kentucky and Tennessee before working his way up north. He is best known for his debut graphic novel Homesick, which was nominated for a 2014 Eisner. He followed that up with the creation of an online comic series called Crap Shoot where he worked with some of today's biggest comic creators. A Story for Desmond is a bedtime story about loss and the gifts left behind by those who are gone.

Jason's three-book series called Last Pick pulls from his desire for his children to grow up reading about a diverse world full of young people exceeding the expectations others may place on them.
