Topic: Comic Books - New
Just in time for Halloween is the comic book 'Rob Bot - Robot Mechanic' #1, with a special Halloween theme.
Jason tells me that this comic book will be debuting at the upcoming Big Apple Con during Halloween Weekend in New York City!
So what is this comic book about? Here's what the creator says about the issue and what is contained in its' pages:
Rob Bot sets out on some fun strange journeys filled with technoghosts, gremlins, specters and much more.
Art, Lettered, Designed and Created by Jason May.
Three, eerie themed, action packed shorts written by Steven Withrow, Shawn Granger and Joe Caramagna.
Pinup by Chris Gugliotti.
Interview with creator by Brian LeTendre of Secret Identity Podcast.
I received a preview copy, and found that it is a black & white interior pages comic book with full color cover.
I also found three well written and illustrated stories centering on this character, Rob Bot, who is a robot mechanic. Not having run across this character before, and realizing that it is a type of 'anthology' comic book, I wondered what I would think of it, as anthology comics are usually harder to review.
Well... I enjoyed reading all three stories! The fact that it is a Halloween Special comic book added to the book by giving it a 'theme', tying all three stories together.
The artwork and lettering were top notch, and flowed with the stories by the different writers.
The main character has depth and the three stories gave additional insight to him.
This is a well written and illustrated comic book in my opinion. I would look forward to reading more issues of this character!

Jason also wrote the following about the upcoming Big Apple Con that he will be attending soon:
"I will be bringing piles of robot head paintings, original art from various published works and my sketching materials. I will be doing my usual $10 robot sketches and will be happy to discuss any other types of sketches or commissions over the weekend. I may have a guitar or two with me. We'll have to see what time permits. I hope to see a good turn out."
As stated above, Jason May will be at the Big Apple Con. He will be sharing a booth with Joe Caramagna at booth #3043. Here are additional details on the con:
