Debuting in November 2016, Motor Girl was created, written and illustrated by Moore running for ten issues published by Abstract Studio before concluding in November 2017. The series follows Sam Lockyear, an Iraq War veteran suffering from post-traumatic stress disorder while adjusting to civilian life as an auto mechanic in the American Southwest. As a coping mechanism, Sam converses with her imaginary friend, Mike, an enormous gorilla, when the duo learn that the scrapyard Sam works at may be sold, leading to the sudden arrival of extraterrestrials.
The property is the second comic book title created by Moore currently in development, with Moore and Professor Marston and the Wonder Woman filmmaker Angela Robinson developing a film adaptation of Moore's longrunning, award-winning comic book series Strangers in Paradise.
