Dark Horse Comics has announced an out-of-this-world road trip in X-Ray Robot from writer / artist Michael Allred, colorist Laura Allred, and letterer Nate Piekos, debuting in in March 2020.
Michael Allred says:
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.
X-Ray Robot follows Max, a family man seeking a more interesting life. The fabric of his reality is torn in front of him during a new experiment at work. A robotic figure appears before him claiming to be his 277-year-old self. It can x-ray multiple dimensions and fights a nihilistic entity from another dimension who wants to take all life to its “pre-Big Bang” status. Max must team up with the robot on an interdimensional road trip through past and future to take down this villain and save the universe.
Each issue of X-Ray Robot will include bonus 3D pin-ups. The first issue of the four-part mini-series is set for release on March 25th, 2020.
