1.5 stars. This seems to be following James Robinson's Starman approach—quirky intellectual conversations in the middle of peril—but Young doesn't do it as well. While I like the concept of the lawless elevated super-highway running coast to coast, the story by itself was pretty dully (and the villain's yammering just made flip the page).

Nice premise - a super-elevated super-speed highway from coast to coast, which attracts the outlaws of the country, etc, while law-abiding street-drivers live below. Dentist has to race to the other end to save his wife. It's all over way too soon, and things get wrapped up way too neatly. The art is good, but the story seems dashed off. It would be nice for this to be a continuing 'world' to write stories in, though.
