The artwork is good, too. The human figures project power and strength, or venality and corruption as called for. Space ships, cities, and weapons are all drawn (painted?) with fine attention to detail. The stories collected in this book are all good ones, by one robot in the Metabaron's household for the benefit of another. Like any good comic story, plausibility occasionally defers to dramatic need, so most of those battles with zap guns and high-tech armor end up as sword fights.
There are two reasons I didn't give this five stars. First, the language is stilted and synthetic, like a string of potholes in the narrative path. Second, as much as I liked the story and the way that the characters pushed it forward, the characters themselves just didn't engage me. Parhaps they came and went too soon, perhaps their warrior ethos and majesty crowded out the rest of their personalities. It's a good comic anyway, and I'm coming back for more.
By the way, this is another title from DC's Humanoids series. Bilal and the Schuitens did other work in this series, some of the best around. Too bad DC had to shut that series down.
heavy metal likes to think it is on the same level as this series, but it is not. it is simply sci-fi themed softcore p0rn, and who reads that for a good story? if you like brainy and (overall) original sci-fi action that blows star wars and most sci-fi movies out of the water, check this out.
