Truckus Maximus: boisterous fun

Booklist weighs in on Truckus Maximus!
With nearly 300 pages to work with, author Peterson is not afraid to pump the brakes in order to develop his characters and flesh out his bizarre world, helpfully sandwiching such scenes between daredevil races and huge car pile ups. 
In artwork resembling a mash-up of Speed Racer and Mad Max: Fury Road, [artist] García compellingly pairs anime-inspired character designs, complete with over-the-top expressions, with heavily detailed cars and in-depth racing action, bringing lively, dynamic motion to the scenes. He also makes clever use of space, switching nimbly between full-page spreads and short runs of panels.  
Boisterous fun for manga or racing fans.
