The Chase (Last Man #3) by Balak -PUBLIC ONLY

Balak The Chase (Last Man #3) 207 pgs. First Second, 2015. $9.99 Content: Language: PG13 (mature talk); Mature Content: R Violence: PG13 GRAPHIC NOVEL
In this third book of the series, Richard has taken off. Adrian and his mother, Marianne, try to follow him. On a motorcycle, something Adrian has never seen before, they find themselves crossing a mysterious divide into a totally different kind of country, where justice is akin to WWF. They quickly find themselves in big trouble!
To be honest this is a totally fun series to read, the plot pulls you along, the artwork is stylized and interesting, the magical element is cool, but its rated R. I think high school students would love it, but its gotta be public only. This is 100% not appropriate for a school library, there is smutty talk and prostitution and even threats of rape. The main characters are completely grown up, so if it were me I would probably just shelve in the adult graphic novel section.
