Adding aliens and nazis usually makes everything cooler, but nothing can save this book- especially when you have FREAKING TRUCK RACES IN SPACE.

Looks like you repeated a picture on the last page, Proto.

Yes, but what a picture! Jefferson Archer encased in a giant sperm! It deserves special treatment, don't you think?

Awesome Longbox, Proto. And worth the wait.

I still can't believe such a comic series actually ever existed. It's like suddenly learning that everything I ever believed about comics was a lie.

This needs to be made into a movie. Or maybe a television show. Something! The world must be told about the metal-skulled space trucker with his silver dollar and psychotic brother.

Fixed it.

From now on, I'm going to climb on words to escape from any difficult situation. Also, the very last photo in the article should be printed out as a poster and hung proudly on everybody's walls.

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.

STOP SCRATCHING AT THE DOOR!!!, (sigh) i knew we should never have gotten billy that damn truck for his birthday..."

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.

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!

So, I was trying to think of who Wide Load Annie reminds me of....

If this comic is made into a movie, there's only one director worthy of the job. Uwe Boll!

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!

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

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

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.

I fear this comic is the result of watching "Smokey and the Bandit" while on LSD!

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.

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.

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

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....
