This delightfully inventive graphic novel debut follows an eclectic group of runners searching for their place in the world.

Right from the starting block, you’ll realize that Eight-Lane Runaways is not like any graphic novel you’ve read before. As you’re thrown into a fantastical world of endless tracks, you meet a team of young people briskly attempting to complete their calling, whether it be finding their lost cats, earning one last self-made merit badge, or flying a kite to the moon. Henry McCausland combines elaborate landscapes, line work imbued with thrilling kinetic energy, and a laugh-out-loud idiosyncratic sense of humor to this playful adventure — which can be read both as a fever pitch surrealistic take on the Olympic Games and a touching allegory on what it takes to help one another achieve our goals.

Praise For Eight Lane Runaways

Fantastically ambitious, funny, and delightfully weird.

A gentle, technically gifted work of character-driven surrealism atmospherically resembling Where’s Waldo crossed with Chris Ware and Winsor McCay in its bird’s-eye perspective and precision.
