"It's like twisted metal, leaped into the great horror era of the 50's B cult films with the 70's punk embraced attitude, while topping it off with a nod to the great spaghetti westerns! And Holy cheese on a shmacher, is it awesome! Definitely check this book out if you're a horror fan!" – Graphic Policy, indy spotlight: Overall 9 out of 10
"Lippitt's script is solid... is true to the greaser, hot-rod era and dances like blood red pinstripes across the page! The Showdown could've easily been a midnight flick staring Peter Fonda and directed by Roger Corman!" – Slack Jaw Punks
