The Tribe is more than a motorcycle club – it’s a family.
Literally, since club leader Vince rides alongside his son Race,
as well as fellow Viet Nam vet Lemmy and a passle of others.
They’ve been together a long time, these two generations of
riders. But never before have they seen the kind of trouble
they’re about to run up against.
War is easy—lines are drawn, sides are chosen. But when the
club is attacked on a lonely highway road by a trucker with
unknown but quite murderous intent, their hard-scrabble
existence becomes one of pure survival. And not all of ‘em are
going to make it through.
In Throttle, Stephen King
collaborated for the first time with his son, novelist & Eisner
Award-winning comic book writer Joe Hill, to
bring the Tribe to life in their prose tribute to
Richard Matheson’s Duel. And now King and Hill
are collaborating with IDW Publishing, home of Joe Hill’s
acclaimed comic-book series Locke & Key and The
Cape, to bring the story to vivid four-color life in the
form of Road Rage.
The four-issue Road Rage, which shares the title of
the joint audiobook versions of Throttle and Duel,
adapts both stories to comic-book form. Throttle is up
first, adapted by IDW Chief Creative Officer and Zombies vs
Robots co-creator Chris Ryall and artist
Nelson Daniel (The Cape). The
story, which unfolds over two gritty issues starting with Road
Rage #1, will be released in both print and digital form on
February 15 and be accompanied by variant covers from acclaimed
artists such as Phil Noto and Tony
Harris, as well as a temporary Tribe tattoo of your
own, too. Just, if you apply that tat to your personage, be
damned careful not to run afoul of any trucks out on the open
