In a world where the Roman Empire never fell, gladiators are enslaved teenagers racing monster trucks on reality TV. How can you resist? #TruckusMaximus by @petersonscott + illustrated by @Radtasticalcore is coming to bookshelves in October 2019! #FirstSecond #CoverReveals
I am beyond delighted to finally be able to talk about Truckus Maximus, an original graphic novel that will be published by First Second Books in October. Written by me, illustrated by the amazing José Garcia, it’s nearly 300-pages of speculative fiction that’s been in the works for years. (Pencilling, inking, coloring and lettering 288 pages takes a while.)
I'll be writing more—much more!—about Truckus in days to come. For now I'm just excited that it's no longer a secret!
