The Rock Driving is a multi-pane exploitable comic series based on several screen captured images from the 2009 family adventure film Race To The Witch Mountain. The comics usually begin with the film’s protagonist Jack asking Sara a question while driving, to which she responds with a shocking revelation that makes Johnson turn his head with a startled facial expression.
