    Default Trucker themed comics?

    Hey folks, great to join the party!

    Question: are there any trucker-themed comics out there you can recommend, or comics with trucks in?

    Trying to get my six year old into comics!

    Thanks!

    If you are willing to hunt down back issues, there was an 80s series from Marvel called US 1 that featured trucking as a theme...







    it ran 12 issues.

    Comic fans get the comics their buying habits deserve.

    There's also the character Razorback from Marvel, created in 1977.

    I've heard good comments about Ghost Fleet. It was published in a collected format not too long ago. Speaking as a dad, you may want to check and make sure it's suitable for a 6-year-old. Some of the reviews I've read describe it as brutal and bloody at times.

    Trucker **** in Denial by Jim Goad and Jim Blanchard
    Edit: didn't see this being for a six year old. Definitely not appropriate then.

    Death or Glory, a mini-series which is nearing the end of its run, is about truckers. However, it is a 17+ comic, so it is definitely not appropriate for a 6-year-old. Maybe a 6-year-old who likes cars and trucks would enjoy a comic like Transformers?

    Ha, yeah that’s true!

    SEA OF STARS is cool father/son story, at least!

    Didn't the most recent Hyperion series have him as a trucker? No idea if it is appropriate for a six year old, though.

    Green Lantern Hal Jordan took up being a trucker in the late 70's V.2 around issue #100





    And of course he can't just haul vegetables, or refrigerators,, it's got to be outrageously dangerous like explosives during a thunder storm..., cause he's Hal (fearless) Jordan

    He even had a sidekick Itty the alien starfish.



    And after he was done, it made perfect sense, he still kept his Power Battery in his truck, ............. in orbit, in space!

    Lasted to about to issue #118 - https://i.imgur.com/buJwUAU.jpg

    Deep down he's got to go back to be a star pilot at heart. .
