Truckus Maximus by Scott Peterson and José García - ADVISABLE

Truckus Maximus by Scott Peterson and José García 282 pages. GRAPHIC NOVEL First Second 2019 $17.

Language: PG (7 swears, 0 'f') Mature Content: G; Violence: PG



The Truckus Maximus is an extreme race, where "where only two things matter: Honor and the Game." The best racer is Axl, and when one of his team members is disabled, he picks a racer from another team - Piston - a young, inexperienced racer who has some smart ideas, but she is a novice and makes a lot of mistakes, however, Axl sees potential so the team embraces her training. 

A futuristic, dystopian world where the slightest mistakes can get you sent to your death, exciting races (also to the death), and a bunch of teenagers using their skills to make a family - what more could a reader want? Excellent art, well detailed with as much or more of the story told in pictures as in the text. My manga fans are going to love this one! Can't wait to get it on the shelves.
