Rev it up to save the world in ‘Petrol Head’ this fall

Rob Williams and Pye Parr of 2000AD fame will bring a new post-apocalyptic series to Image this fall, as they prepare to start their engines on the car-themed Petrol Head this November.

The series will feature a hot-rod racing robot and 12-year-old girl who may be the only chance to save humanity.
