Jeremiah is a Belgian comic book series by Hermann Huppen. It was created in 1979 for the German magazine Zack and also appeared in Métal Hurlant and Spirou. 27 albums have appeared in French until now.
It tells a post-apocalyptic story: racial wars have torn the USA apart and Jeremiah and his friend Kurdy are trying to find their place in the new world.
Jeremiah has been very successful, both critically and commercially, in Europe and has a large fan base. There have been attempts to introduce the series to the US market on several occasions without promising results, mostly due to different tastes of American and European comic book public.
Jeremiah is published in several languages, but the current holder of English language copy-rights is Strip Art Features. The series has reached a cult status in Europe. However it failed when it was introduced to the US in the early 1990s. Strip Art Features attempted in collaboration with Dark Horse Comics to reestablish Jeremiah in the US in the early 2000s, with Jeremiah: Gun in the Water.
