Truckus Maximus

Written by Scott Peterson, Illustrated by José García

In a near-futuristic Roman empire Axl and his teammates live for Honor and The Game. Truckus Maximus includes impossible feats, races that can end in disaster, and even death. With rules that are constantly changing, Axl must help his team, including their new driver Piston, beat impossible odds. If Axl wants to achieve the ultimate status of Centurion, he must learn to build his team. Can they grow together? Or, will Truckus Maximus claim more victims? Everyone is watching, including Caesar himself.

The graphics are bright and filled with action. The style adds and helps to envelop the reader in the chaos of the events. This graphic novel will appeal to many readers who enjoy action and fast paced stories. Grades 6 – 12.
