Synopses & Reviews
From bestselling author and illustrator Nathan Hale, a fast-food run turns strange when two kids end up in another dimension.
Sid, Axl, and Ivan volunteer to make a late-night fast-food run for the high school theater crew, and when they return, they find themselves. Not in a deep, metaphoric sense: They find copies of themselves onstage. As they look closer, they begin to realize that the world around them isn’t quite right. Turns out, when they went to the taco place across town, they actually crossed into an alien dimension that’s eerily similar to their world. The aliens have made sinister copies of cars, buildings, and people — and they all want to get Sid, Axl, and Ivan. Now the group will have to use their wits, their truck, and even their windshield scraper to escape! But they may be too late. They may now be copies themselves...

Stranger Things meets The Last Kids on Earth in Apocalypse Taco, a science-fiction graphic novel from the New York Times bestselling author/illustrator of the Nathan Hale's Hazardous Tales series.
A sinister drive-through threatens to end the world--and three kids in a beat-up truck are humanity's only hope
It's the night before dress rehearsal, and the school theater troupe is working late and very hungry. Eleven-year-old twins Axl and Ivan--along with their 16-year-old driver, Sid--volunteer to make a late-night fast-food run.
At the drive-through, their tacos start to . . . move. And they don't seem friendly. Even after they get rid of the food, the world around them isn't quite right. There are strangely moving cars, buildings, and people--and they seem intent on swallowing everything in their path.
Now the trio will have to use their wits, their truck, and even their windshield scraper to escape . . . before they're replaced by monstrous versions of themselves
