DarkfireTaimatsu The best part? The Highwayman was recently listed in Dark Reign Files #1 as a potentially useful contact for Norman Osbourne and the Cabal. Expendability level: low!

appealofsoup "BIIIIIIIIKE!"

Best sound effect ever.

TuxKamen Okay, wait, the Highwayman was just the brother in a mask... and the old man in issue 3 was the Highwayman in a mask... I'm flashing back to the unmasking scene in "Shriek if You Know What I Did Last Friday the 13th: "Another mask... and another mask... and another mask!"

spidergremlin After seeing this, I have a serious urge to build a model of the US-1. It has 4 smokestacks! That's got to be one powerful engine.

funkychuck I had the first issue with midnight, and I've spent years wondering how this all ended. Thank you, I-mockery!

Major Wood With the right director, this could make an awesome movie. Terry Gilliam, anyone?

Count Mek "OVER THE TOP, U.S.!! OVER THE TOP!!!"
Shame we didn't get anything on Jeff, I thought considering he was more of a fallen hero than a mad man, I thought that he would have at least have a half decent ending, besides, you can understand why he become the Highway man, if not over reacted slightly... I feel pretty sorry for him actaully

Tetsu Deinonychus Desert_Screams, are you sure Frank Miller would be writing it, and not the dreaded Bendis?

Just imagine U.S. and all his Super-Trucker buddies having lots of conversations that don't go anywhere!
Jun 11th, 2008 04:13 AM
es-1 Um, did anybody notice that the last issue of US-1 was guest-pencilled by STEVE FUCKING DITKO?
Jun 10th, 2008 09:22 PM
Desert_Screams Suitably deranged coverage of a thoroughly deranged series. Very well done!

And that's the old Marvel so many of us miss, just ludicrous enough to be interesting, over the top at every opportunity, and rarely taking itself too seriously like some Very Special Episode in which Arnold gets dysentery from an undercooked cheese doodle.

If this series made it past the development stage in 2008, Wolverine would be in every other issue-- alternating with Spider-Man-- and since Frank Miller would be writing the whole series, it would be The Goddamn Truckstop and The Goddamn Brainwave Controls....

rizzo Holy crap space truckers with cybernetic CB brains. The drugs must have been so much better in the 70's...

Icculus I had a case of white line fever once. It made me listen to techno all night, I couldn't sleep, but this comic made a lot more sense.

Kirbykid .... My head hurts now...

But this shit is insane!! They really should bring back some stuff and characters from this madness, like maybe Wide Load is a Skrull or something like that.

Tetsu Deinonychus I fear this comic is the result of watching "Smokey and the Bandit" while on LSD!
Jun 8th, 2008 10:17 PM
Commanderraf Epic...
Just epic...

But if the airbrakes didn't work in space, how come the engine worked? How did the fuel was burned? What gave them the impulse to travel through space? The wheels?...

Ok, gotta go now before I start analyzing this and my head explodes.

Fear N Loathing my brain hurts...

Nick Marvel should spend less time on cross overs and more time on comics like this.

Mike P That appearance also featured a trucker in an electrified pig suit. US Archer Profile on Marvel Appendix

Rodan Holy crap! I just realized!
I am 99% certain that the Short Stop in Space (complete with Wide Load) guest-starred in a She-Hulk comic from a while back that I own!
Jun 7th, 2008 07:44 PM
Aries If this comic is made into a movie, there's only one director worthy of the job. Uwe Boll!
Jun 7th, 2008 06:18 PM
10,000 Volt Ghost So, I was trying to think of who Wide Load Annie reminds me of....

Jonathan Winters in drag. Dead on
Jun 7th, 2008 06:07 PM
Colonel Flagg I just remembered - if Jefferson and US were run off the road by a truck in the first comic, then who was driving the other truck? Did Jeff have the same power of "remote drivability" that US had? Or is this a question better off unasked?

And Clay Aiken should play Retread, hands down!
Jun 7th, 2008 10:59 AM
Tom Foolery Could this comic be the long forgotten and enigmatic prequel to the smash hit of 1996, "Space Truckers"? This really needs to be adapted to film. The epic battle of Nazis versus Truckers, alone, would sell tickets. I suggest Wilford Brimley for the role of Wide Load Annie. Either him or King Kong Bundy. Maybe Clay Aiken could play U.S. Archer. I smell a blockbuster here.

greenimp "Like a dog gone mad, US-1's pursuit stops when it reaches the end of its leash."
this got me thinking, what if trucks were like dogs?

"does oo want to go drivseys!?" "does my widdew trucky wucky want his fue fue!?" "aww, aw, no... the bloody things spilt oil everywhere! margret, get th/ no! bad truck you are a very VERY BAD TRUCK!!!, thats it, i'm locking it outside for the night, out you go, go on... STOP SCRATCHING AT THE DOOR!!!, (sigh) i knew we should never have gotten billy that damn truck for his birthday..."

Copper I love how "semi-enthusiasts" in the recap box informing us of the issue in which the truck became mentally controlable can be read as both people fond of semis or people only slightly enthused by this comic.
