Can a robot shed a tear?
Sure can! They can laugh, spit, swear, steal and kill, too.
Ivan Brandon, co-creator of the appealing NYC Mech, gives a few dozen creators the chance to play with the idea of a world filled with naught but robots and ends up with some very entertaining results.
Some of the notable creators contributing a bit of robotic goodness are: Eduardo Risso (100 Bullets), Phil Hester (Green Arrow), Ben Templesmith (Fell), Rick Remender (Strange Girl), Alex Maleev (Daredevil) and Michael Oeming (Powers).
Neil Schaffer and Ryan Brown’s The Watchmaker, the story of a shut-in gets to know his neighbour in a very surprising new way, is a standout. Also notable is Fear And Self-Loathing In NYC by Jonathan L. Davis and Tony Moore, about a robot with the worst luck in the world with women.
