Episodic television received a considerable jolt in the arm this past November thanks to AMC’s Into The Badlands. Airing after Walking Dead, the show is a post-apocalyptic, kung fu spectacle starring Daniel Wu (New Police Story), Martin Csoskas (The Equalizer), and Emily Beecham (28 Weeks Later).STK685196-1

Now approaching its fourth episode, Badlands continues to receive high praise week-to-week for its jaw-dropping action and stuntwork. However, like any great post-apocalyptic tale, the show also sports a rich backstory. Fortunately, AMC has provided Badland fans with a weekly digital comic series that fills in the details between episodes. It not only gives readers a more expansive look at how things on Earth devolved into a feudal society, but also delves into the characters and how they came to know (and fight) one another.

We’ve provided the first few pages below, but if you’re a fan of the show then you should definitely read the first few chapters over on the official site.

Into the Badlands airs Sundays at 10/9c on AMC. New issues of Into the Badlands’ digital comic are released weekly on AMC.com.STK685196-2STK685196-3
