Life Finds a Way is a comic anthology about post-apocalyptic stories and the hope for tomorrow. Post-apocalyptic fiction as a genre is focused on the horror of humanity’s struggle to survive day-to-day in a shattered world, but rarely touches on the more human aspects of life after society as we know it has fallen. The Life Finds a Way anthology offers a breath of fresh air in the genre, focusing not on gritty realism and tragic misanthropy, but on the real human stories of love, family, courage, and hope despite the circumstances of a changed world.

This anthology will give artists and writers a chance to explore the ways in which people have protected, nurtured, and developed their new communities, as well as highlighting the adaptable resilience of humanity. This does not mean that everything has to be easy for our protagonists – the world has fallen apart, after all, and it will not be rebuilt in a single lifetime – but these stories should show that progress is possible, even if it is as small as tending a garden in an underground shelter. Life, after all, always finds a way.
