The Comic

It all came to an end over twenty years ago.

This big, galactic civilization came crashing down. Decades later a man who survived the chaos tells his story to a boy too young to remember. The guy’s name is Malik, and before the fall, he was just a regular corporate nobody.

But when Malik finds out that his company is up to some shady business, he is compelled to publish their secrets. Get the truth out. It doesn’t take long for the totalitarian Nation to catch on, and our story starts when Malik is sent to prison.

There, he meets members of a shadowy resistance group, and a street punk who thinks he can see the future – and together they plot a daring escape! Malik’s new life is just beginning, as the world itself is ending.


The New Yesterday is a free-to-read, crowd-funded sci-fi
webcomic about the end of the world.
