Davidson, Joe – Robot Bildungsroman #2



Robot Bildungsroman #2

The comic with the catchy title is back!  Seriously, I’m sure some people have skipped this if they’ve seen it at the store purely due to that clunky title, which would be a shame, as they’d only be hurting themselves.  Well, and Joe, who I’m sure would like to at least make a few dollars on this.  In this issue we get a solid recap of the last issue (hoorah!), see a bit more of the men behind the robots, and get a showdown between the cops and the gang from the last issue, which doesn’t seem to end well for anyone involved.  Marci was a bit scarce in this issue, but we do see her getting a “routine” check-up and seemingly forgetting about it once she gets to school, although she is left with the sense that something is wrong.  There’s also a short story at the end of the book that deals with a bit more of the culture involved in having robots being readily available all the time, as this tells the tale of… well, you can see it for yourself on the sample page.  I probably should have used one of his splashier pages (as this issue really looks great), but I couldn’t resist that description.  Anyway, the humanoids don’t exactly work as advertised, but one boy decides to keep the defective creature with him anyway.  It’s another solid issue and again, I have to point out that this has all the makings of a really great series.  Assuming you like smart science fiction, that is…  $3
