The baddie is the leather-clad whip wielding woman named Midnight. Just a reminder that it's not just a regular whip, either. It's a hypno-whip.
The truck isn't really supposed to be sentient, but while all the humans are hypnotized, the truck itself manages to defeat Midnight itself.
A cute comic. Mostly harmless.

Amazing Heroes tried to get preview info on this book in late 1983, only to have Al Milgrom refuse to talk to them and editor Ralph Macchio switch their call to Marvel's front desk, resulting in the quote "It looked like we would have to go to press without information on a title we KNEW was everyone's favorite. So we did."

There was some confusion at Marvel over the length of this title; supposedly some staff didn't realize it was a maxi-series until they asked Milgrom for plots for issues 13 and 14.

The term "maxi series" is strictly a DC thing. Marvel never used it (and I hate it, but that's just me).

The "talking" truck might be a play on the premise of KNIGHT RIDER.
