One of my all time favorite graphic novels. The story sends Mac, an unlikely hero off to a racing adventure filled with obstacles, villains, and a surrealistic ending that makes you feel you might have been part of a dream. The art is beautiful and colorful and it's a fun read if you are looking for a break from reality.

I'm not sure how to feel about this one. The art is beautiful and its a fun and very surreal adventure. The story and its surreal nature wasn't really my cup of tea, but man is that artwork amazing. Worth checking out even if its just to look at.
