"A sleeper of a book that deserves a wider audience ... a charming little gem." -- Chris Mautner, The Patriot-News
"The magic in Nicolas Mahler's work does not exist in its impeccable writing, or in its elegant drawings, but in the strange alchemy between the two." -- Lewis Trondheim
"Lone Racer is a refreshingly off-beat story, told in a unique graphic style. I love it!" -- Bill Plympton
From the cartoonist of Van Helsing's Night Off comes another quirky introspective tale. Lone Racer is the story of a down-and-out racecar driver whose days of success are long gone. After a misguided attempt at a bank robbery -- where he is supposed to drive the getaway car -- Lone Racer decides that his days of going downhill are over. Will he get back on track? . . . A rare blend of whimsy and sadness, Lone Racer is a story of fast cars, faster women, and one man's ride from first to worst and back again.
