Legendary Fighting Fantasy adventure gamebook Freeway Fighter is to become a four-issue comic book series. Just Cause writer Andi Ewington and Warlock on Firetop Mountain creator Ian Livingstone will team up with artist Simon Coleby to create the book.
The post-apocalyptic title originally allowed the reader to take charge in a Mad Max-style world, driving a souped-up Dodge Interceptor across a desert wilderness in a world ravaged by a super virus. The new book, set in the same world, will follow former I-400 driver Bella De La Rosa, who must hone her racing skills to survive this shattered planet.
The Fighting Fantasy gamebooks were created by Ian Livingstone and Steve Jackson in 1982, and, as the title suggests, is better known for its swords and sorcery. The brand celebrates 35 years in 2017 and has 18 million copies worldwide and is translated in over 30 languages.
Ian told the press, “I’ve always wanted to see Fighting Fantasy books in comic book form. It’s been a pleasure working with Andi Ewington and the artists who have got the Interceptor roaring down the post-apocalyptic road with Bella at the wheel, burning rubber to survive!”
