Cars: The Rookie #2 (Boom! Kids)
By Alan J. Porter & Albert Carreres

The origins of racer Lightning McQueen continue as his friend and driver, Mack, takes over the narrative. McQueen arrives at the Piston Cup racing series eager to jump into the fray, but without a sponsor, he’s out of luck. McQueen has his sights set on Dinoco, but they’ve already got a racing car. It looks like McQueen’s only chance may be to lower himself to working for the Rust-eze people. In the Cars movie, we saw McQueen as something of a self-centered jerk who learned what it really meant to have people to care about. We still get that this issue. His attitude towards Rust-eze is very much in keeping with who he is at the beginning of the movie. The end of the issue, however, shows that even this early McQueen wasn’t totally self-absorbed. It’s a nice angle that plays well with McQueen’s eventual transformation. The first two issues of this book have been a lot of fun, and I look forward to the rest.
