Alyson used to be a getaway driver but regrets some of the choices she’s made in her life. Fortunately for her, redemption could be just around the next corner, in the form of a bizarre Canonball Run-style cross-country road race with a twist: each leg of the race occurs in a different historical time zone. Win the race and the grand prize is to go back in time and change a decision you’ve made in the past to change your life.
It’s a bizarre concept but one that’s uniquely suited to comics, where writer Brian Joines and artist Jake Elphicklets can let their imaginations run riot. Expect Nazis, dinosaurs and natural disasters, alongside the leathers and fast cars of a pulpy road race.
Backtrack Volume 1 is out on 18 November 2020 from Oni Press.
