Kirkus Review of Truckus Maximus
August 30, 2019 @ 2:10 pm | Filed under: Books
Scott’s graphic novel got a great review in Kirkus!
Thanks to the incisive probing of the crushing power of spectacle via a focus on the game and its toll on the drivers, the story evokes oppressive regimes. The gritty artwork overflows with frenetic action, using colors that evoke a dystopian world. Ample use of close-ups, irregular panel layouts, and other techniques sharpen the story’s emotional resonance and stakes…A truly marvelous tribute to underdogs. (Graphic fantasy. 12-18)
Truckus Maximus pubs on October 15 but it’s available for preorder now, if you’re inclined. (Preorders are SUCH a help to a book.) I can’t wait until this hits people’s shelves!

Ooh, nice! Sounds really exciting — and love that cocky looking kid. Great artwork.
