    Default Road Trip Comics Recommendations? ( Any Publisher)

    I can think of a ton of films that are like this, but blanking on road trip comics. I know I've read x-men comics that have done this, but can't remember specific issues. I'm not looking for a specific character or publisher, so I wasn't sure where to post this thread.

    Usagi Yojimbo always travels so a lot of his storylines could be like this. And the John Romita Jr. / Snyder batman was like this as well.

    I've also been taught that these type of stories are derived from Don Quixote, so they're not road trips, but Quixotic journeys.

    Anyways, would appreciate any recommendations.

    Road Trippy (Harley Quinn Road Trip Special)

    TVTropes also has some comics examples under Road Trip Plot.
    «Speaking generally, it is because of the desire of the tragic poets for the marvellous that so varied and inconsistent an account of Medea has been given out» (Diodorus Siculus, The Library of History [4.56.1])

    Most "adventurer" comics (Groo, Conan. Red Sonya, etc.) rely on the hero's traveling from place to place.
    Many post-apocalyptic comics (Y the Last man, Animosity, etc.) feature journeys across a devastated world.
    Many comics are devoted to exploring a fantasy world by journeying through it (The Wizard of Oz, Die, Manifest Destiny, etc.)
    One genuine "buddy road trip" comic, in the Hope-and-Crosby sense, is the 2015 Bizarro comic in which the title character takes a cross-country road trip with ... Jimmy Olsen!
    And, of course, let us not speak of Superman's walk across the USA. Ever.

    The original Old Man Logan.
    I think restorative nostalgia is the number one issue with comic book fans.
    A fine distinction between two types of Nostalgia:

    Reflective Nostalgia allows us to savor our memories but accepts that they are in the past
    Restorative Nostalgia pushes back against the here and now, keeping us stuck trying to relive our glory days.
