US 1 #1
Issue(s): US 1 #1
The premise here is that a trucker gets into an accident caused by the mythic criminal called the Highwayman...
...and in the post-accident surgery, machinery is put in his head that allows him to listen in on CB chatter without a radio.
Determined to hunt down the Highwayman, he designs a super truck...
...that he can control remotely with a coin-sized remote control unit.
Obviously intended to be a simple comic for kids, it's still a strange premise for a series. It's not a particularly bad comic, just... basic.
Quality Rating: C
Chronological Placement Considerations: In this issue there's really no indication that this is supposed to be part of the Marvel Universe, but see Michael's comment below. These characters will also be used much later in John Byrne's She-Hulk.
Continuity Insert? N

The series was definitely originally intended to be in continuity- in issue 3, the Highwayman claims to have sought out the Ancient One and the Aged Genghis.

Wide Load Annie sounds like the title to either an '80's porn flick or an AC/DC song.
