Here’s Amazon’s description which really can’t be improved upon:
“El Crappo Comics (New Zealand) is proud to present “Scooters of the Apocalypse”. Quite possibly the first book ever to combine Homer’s “Odyssey”, the “Revelation” and classic scooters in comic book form. If you’re one of those people who find James Joyce’s “Ulysses” too long and lacking in pictures “Scooters of the Apocalypse” is the book for you – it’s much shorter, got more pictures and has scooters!”
It’s just $9 at Amazon. Would anyone be interested in doing a book report for ScooterSwag?

This book is the compilation of the Dead Enders series which is terrific. It’s just fun to look at a post-apocalyptic scooter scene. Here’s the description from Amazon:
“Twenty years after “the cataclysm”, New Bedlam is a bleak metroplis divided by the authorities into fenced-off sectors dilineated by wealth and class, all policed by stormtrooper-type policemen. In the outer sectors, a post-cataclysm nuclear winter type phenomenon means 24 hour darkness, while in the wealthy areas, weather machines can generate sunlight and temperate climates. The story takes place mostly in an outer sector where a group of teenagers styled on the mod subculture run around on scooters and deal in amphetamines. One of these mods seems have visions of the past, and the authoroties are trying to find him in order to study him for some unxplained reason. In the meantime, he’s trying to steal a weather generator to fulfill a friend’s dying wish. Although the story is somewhat disjointed and has a number of grey areas, it’s visually compelling, with a nice palate and good action art. The use of basic mod style touchstones, such as parkas, scooters, and arrows.”
Here’s a new comic book series featuring scooters:
‘Pigtale’ is a contemporary story that takes place in present-day Portland, Oregon,” Nedelcu told CBR News. “It tells the exciting adventure of Boston Booth, an amateur Private Eye whose life is in financial and professional turmoil, when suddenly he runs into Clyde, an intelligent talking pig desperate to get away from his violent wolf stepbrother Taxx. Together, Boston & Clyde venture off into the face of danger to help one another overcome their fears, rescue loved ones, and save the city from Taxx, who’s bent on destroying Clyde, getting his revenge, and using the ‘Super-Plasma’ device to conquer the city and reign supreme!”
