Back in the day when I was just a little northern lad I’d sit in my bedroom reading the masterpieces that were Ian Livingstone & Steve Jacksons choose your own Fighting Fantasy books. I remember Deathtrap Dungeon being my first which took me into a world of dungeons and monsters. Over time I saved up and collected most of the books with Freeway Fighter being one of them.
Titan comics is publishing a comic series based on Freeway Fighter and after reading issue one I now want more. As soon as the comic opens it feels very Mad Max as it’s set in an open world ravaged by a virus. The story follows racing driver Bella De La Rosa and her struggles to survive.
The art is fantastic and really gives a feel for the world she is trying to live in and it feels so rugged and desolate you can understand the terror of the world. I look forward to reading more of this series and hopefully more Fighting Fantasy books turned comics in the future.
