Now in Stores - CARS: Rally Race

The third CARS trade paperback collection arrived in comic book stores this week.

CARS: Rally Race collects the story from issues #0-3 of the CARS on-going series and brings the two sides of Lightning McQueen's life together as the Piston Cup racers and friends arrive in Radiator Springs for a charity race.

Of the four CARS story arcs I've written to date, this is perhaps my favorite one.

It will be available in general book stores and on Amazon, June 22nd (You can pre-order here).

The previous two CARS trades are still available:

CARS Launches as ongoing series

Next Wednesday (January 13th, 2010) sees the arrival of CARS #0 in comic book stores.

The #0 issue and the slight title change, from "The World of CARS," to just simply "CARS," marks the switch from separate self contained four-issue mini-series to a regular on-going series.

With the new on-going we are focusing on new stories set after the movie exploring a little bit of where these characters went, plus having some fun along the way. The first story arc (issues #0-3) tell how McQueen organized a charity race at his new race track in Radiator Springs and gives us the chance to bring the two sides of McQueen's life together as we bring the race track crowd into town. Central to the story is a new character who will act as a foil between McQueen and his rival Chick Hicks. The second story arc (#4-7) is planned to be a fun cross country ride in the spirit of the Cannonball Run and Wacky Races as various characters from the CARS franchise team up for the "Route 66 Dash."

As a taster here's a couple of cover designs from issues #0 and #1.


Sarge and Fillmore are on their way...

As these have now been published in this morning's BOOM! Studios press release, I can at last officially post them here.

The A and B covers for The World of CARS: Radiator Springs #2 (aka Cars #6) which will focus on the odd-couple relationship between Sarge and Fillmore. The book is scheduled to be in stores in August. Covers are by the talented Allen Gladfelter.
