“Speed Republic is one of my favourite things I’ve ever written because it’s a story that touches on a whole bunch of narrative elements I love. It’s about a future society breakdown, a completely detached megacorporation monolith, family, a sense of purpose, and of course epic pulse-pounding car race shenanigans. I felt as much influence from haunted John Carpenter futures as I did esoteric emotional vignettes from the Coen Brothers. This is a story about one man trying to help his family, and maybe himself, in a world that won’t, and doesn’t truly value the concept of doing such things. Creating this landscape, in which to tell this story with Emanuele Parascandolo, has been a dark delight and I hope readers lose themselves in the swirl of this comic.”

“Working on Speed Republic has been one of the best experiences I’ve ever had so far. The collaboration between Ryan, Chris, Michele, and I was nothing short of a perfect synergy to me and it made me grow as an artist and as a worker in general. Probably, the thing I’ve loved the most has been reading and picturing the characters that Ryan had created: they felt so real that they immediately took shape in the panels, and trying to make them as expressive as possible has been a total blast for me!”
