Format: Paperback
A fantastic, oversized softcover graphic novel for science fiction fans and "comic" fans alike, World War Robot is a collection of flash fiction snippets told in war-diary form by participants on both sides -- Earth-Humans vs Martian-Humans -- as they struggle to gain the upper hand via their "Bertie" robot war machines. A dirty, lonely tale of human desperation and depravity.

Large illustrations and well-thoughtout character points-of-view fiction blend to give this work a strength rarely seen in comics these days. A masterpiece of minimalistic storytelling, Ashley Wood, uses the reader's own imagination to enhance the world which he has created by giving the reader space in which to develop.

The grim, muted colors and shadows work to give the whole work a feel of down-in-the-mud, blood-in-your-mouth desperate feel of trench warfare that an excellent World War One film will do.

More than just a graphic novel, and more than art, WWR really is a masterpiece that needs to be experienced.

A reviewer called this book "oversized". It is small. You'd do better buying Complete World War Robot if you're looking for something more substantial; the Complete WWR hardback is almost half the price and much larger.

Also, I didn't realize this bore the same content as the Complete WWR. I wasn't paying attention. This is literally just a smaller edition.

Great art, great artwork. Awesome artwork! Did I mention the art? Ashley Wood's painterly robots and humans duking it out in the near future in swirly billowy clouds of mist and smoke through bombed out landscapes reminiscent of the Great War. Soldiers trudging through mud and snow into campaigns where most will surely perish. Thick and smeary paint strokes capture the forms of the huge mechanical warriors and the rugged soldiers that battle for humanity. Not much in words, but huge in imagery. Painterly moody fun. Good stuff.

Plus point: Many works of Ashley Wood, beautiful works.
Negative: The book's format is small.

I did not vote in 5 star only by the size of the book. Because I believe that the book should be larger. Would be better to appreciate art.

In general ... it's a great book.
