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.

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.

Ashley Wood hits it out of the ball park with his art style in general, and WWR does not disappoint. His brush strokes capture a mood a feel that few people attempt to create in contemporary art these days... and T.P. Louise writes snippets of description in a fashion that just adds even more depth to Ashley's art.

I enjoyed this book more than Zombies Versus Robots for the pure fact that the narrative, little that is in there, was concise and well though out, not a herky-jerky style of writing. This added to my enjoyment of the artwork and did not distract. Kudos to the team in whole.

At $12 this is a must have coffee table book for any scifi fan. You could buy a crappy fast-food lunch for more than what this book costs, but why would you?

I give this book 4 out of 5 stars because not everyone will be into the robot artwork. It has a niche audience.
