|Panel from page 9 of IDW's Road Rage by artist Nelson Daniel.|
movie of the same name by then little known director Steven Spielberg, the comic book brings the two together as singular narrative experience. That's quite a pedigree for two stories that at their hearts are about a men battling killer vehicles.
IDW's Road Rage is ably adapted for the comic book medium by writer Chris Ryall and artist Nelson Daniel. Combining both "Throttle" and "Duel" into a single story with a hint of the popular FX cable drama show Sons of Anarchy mixed in, Road Rage begins with story of motorcycle gang "The Tribe" as they're picked off one by one until ultimately the remaining club members, led by their leader Vince, face off with the rig.
As a study in there being roughly six-degrees of separation between most pop culture fiction, and as a fall entertainment, Road Rage is worthy purchase. It is also very likely still available for purchase as individual issues at your local comic shop, and worth the price. A pricey ($24.99) hard cover collection of the miniseries was also released in 2012.
