Earth is no longer what it used to be. An environmental catastrophe transformed the atmosphere into a large magnifying glass that enhances solar radiation; a nuclear disaster slowed down the speed of rotation of the planet. Anyone that moves slower than 78 miles per hour will not escape from the scorching sun. Only a small group of people was able to survive on this new world by constantly moving in huge rolling city, never stopping.

    78 MPH #1 is an excellent start to a post-apocalyptic sci-fi adventure. The premise is wholly original. The stakes and tension are cranked up to 11 almost immediately, and you can intuitively understand the motivations of every character with almost no introduction. The art lacks detail, but what the lines dont show is more than made up for with effective use of colors and shading to cast the new society in perpetual twilight. Read Full Review

    78 MPH #1 is a comic that almost dares you to not think too much about the details. It feels like a film pitched to Michael Bay or Roland Emmerich and even they said the concept was too far out there. I'm intrigued to see where it goes in further issues but right now it feels like a horror film where the sun is the stalker and those living are trying not to be hacked up. I want a bit more than that and here's hoping the comic can deliver. Read Full Review

    If you can't take the heat, get out of the…car? 78 MPH spend a lot of time explaining why its characters are in the predicament they're in, but not nearly enough time focusing on the characters themselves. Read Full Review
