Bryan Edward Hill and Priscilla Petraites’ Chariot Gets a Director in Top Gun: Maverick’s Joseph Kosinski

Chariot #1

Another comic is in the works to come to the big screen as Chariot from Artists, Writers and Artisans (AWA) has found a director in Joseph Kosinski. Kosinski is the director behind the upcoming Top Gun: Maverick. The film will be scripted by Julian Meiojas.

Chariot is by writer Bryan Edward Hill with art by Priscilla Petraites and colors by Marco Lesko. You can read our review of the first issue.

Chariot is a riff on 80s action films that features a state-of-the-art sports car created by the government during the Cold War. After sinking into an ocean, decades later a petty criminal stumbles on the car to find out it’s now controlled by a secret agent’s consciousness.

21 Laps’ Shawn Levy and Dan Cohen are producing with Kosinski. AWA’s Zach Studin is the exec producer. This is the first project for the recently formed AWA Studios. That’s the film and TV arm of the graphic fiction publisher. This is AWA’s first project but it’s clear the comic publisher has its eye on doing more.

Review: Chariot #1

Chariot #1

The 1980s brought a certain sense of style with a fashion sense distinctive to the decade and a color palette to go along. The entertainment also had a certain flair dominated by macho action films. Chariot #1 delivers that aesthetic with an interesting start revolving around a cool and mysterious car.

For its opening seven pages, Chariot #1 takes us on a chase that befits the crazy action of the 80s. A mysterious enemy fires upon the “cool” car using so much of what they have to stop it. Bullets bounce and the “cool” car does its moves to survive. It’s wordless letting the visuals and display do all the talking.

Writer Bryan Edward Hill focuses on that cool factor. It’s not just the car but also Jim, the down on his luck dad trying to make money to pay for his kid’s cancer treatment. Jim owes money to some bad people and needs more money to continue to help his child. It’s the criminal attempting to do good and put into a shitty position. His is a story we can relate to in some way. He just can’t get ahead and above water. He’s drowning in what he must do and does bad things because he has no other options. It’s a familiar archetype but one that works.

But it comes down to those visuals and the “cool” factor. Priscilla Petraites handles the art with color by Marco Lesko. It all evokes the 80s without completely enveloping itself in nostalgia. The color dips itself in the bright colors of the time without hurting the eye. It uses it is a highlight in many ways without making it the center of attention.

Chariot #1 has a sense of style about it that works. It feels like films like Drive in that the visuals and essence are a driver of its draw. It’s a cool start with an intriguing premise and concept. The latter half is a bit surprising where it goes resulting in an unexpected direction. For those that want a little bit of nostalgia, Chariot #1 is something to check out.
