MILWAUKIE, Ore. (December 9, 2019) — From visionary cartoonist, Michael Allred (Madman, iZombie), colorist Laura Allred (Madman, Catwoman), and letterer Nate Piekos (Stranger Things, The Mask) comes the out-of-this-world road trip X-Ray Robot!
Max is a family man seeking a more interesting life. While conducting a new experiment at work the fabric of his reality is torn before his eyes, and a robotic figure appears claiming to be his 277-year-old self. The robot is able to "X-Ray" multiple dimensions and battles a nihilistic entity from another dimension who wants to take all life to its "Pre-Big Bang" status. Max and the robot embark on an interdimensional road trip through past and future to take down the "Nihilist" and save the universe!
"X-RAY ROBOT expands on my "Madmaniverse". Some of the threads are more obvious than others, but most of my creator-owned work ties together. It shouldn't surprise anyone to have someone familiar show up from my other "Madmaniverse" books like It Girl, The Atomics, Spaceman, Mr. Gum, or Red Rocket 7." –Michael Allred
Each issue of X-Ray Robot contains bonus 3D pin-ups! X-Ray Robot #1 (of four) goes on sale March 25, 2020, and is available for pre-order at your local comic shop.
