Cool interview with Joe Hill and Chris Ryall about the comic adaptation of Road Rage: Throttle.

Joe Hill: It's a big shot of adrenaline. I've always thought Throttle was a natural for visual adaptation: we want to see those bikes throwing fans of sand, want to see the truck swatting the motorcycles into the air. Nelson Daniel has a remarkable feel for motion, for the kinetic jolt of iron smashing into iron.

Chris Ryall has done what I hoped he'd do, which is made full use of the form. This isn't the short story with some pictures added to it, it's a comic that succeeds on its own particular terms. So Chris has done startling, satisfying things with lettering, with timing, with layout. Also, he put in thought balloons. Because my Dad thinks the modern prohibition against thought balloons is stupid.
