The Bunker: Volume 1 by Joshua Hale Fialkov, Joe Infurnari (Illustrations)

Bad authors, very bad. Never have anything written in cursive and then make it super tiny; that right there was 1 star, I had to re-read those small types just to make sure I got what they said. 

"On their way to bury a time capsule, five friends - Grady, Heidi, Natasha, Daniel, and Billy - uncover a metal bunker buried deep in the woods. Inside, they discover letters addressed to each of them ... from their future selves! Told they will destroy the world in the very near future, the friends find themselves, over the next few days, growing further and further apart. Though they've been warned against making the wrong choices, how do they know what the right ones are? Can the future really be changed, or will an even darker fate engulf the world?" 

The story lost another star because instead of coming together to try and figure things out, the friends end up fighting each other. Which can you really blame them, Daniel is in a relationship with Natasha and then sleeps with Heidi, who is Natasha's best friend. There is no excuse for something like that. 

The story end in a major cliff hanger and when it comes to apocalyptic futures , I need sequels ASAP, this is way too trippy for them to leave me hanging. 

Now I'm wondering which one of them is dead in the future and if they time travelled to the past, why not simply tell their past selves what to do and not do. Again too trippy and way too many questions.
