AWA Upshot Announces ‘Not All Robots’ A Sci-Fi Black Comedy From Mark Russell And Mike Deodato Jr.

by Olly MacNamee

It’s a busy day for Mark Russell. Not only did I get to interview him ahead of Fantastic Four: Life Stories #1 dropping this new comic book day, but now we hear the official word on his next new series, Not All Robots, coming this August from AWA Upshot.

Billed as a black comedy – something of a Russell trademark, and welcomed every time by this comic book reader – it’s being compared to a darker Futurama. Which can be pretty dark at times itself. Plus, it’s being illustrated by Mike Deodato Jr., one of the artistic architects behind AWA Upshot and a great artist too.

Anyway, here’s the lowdown and first look at Not All Robots #1, out Wednesday August 4th:

“In the year 2056, robots have re­placed human beings in the work­force. An uneasy co-existence develops between the newly intel­ligent robots and the ten billion hu­mans living on Earth. Every human family is assigned a robot upon whom they are completely reliant. What could possibly go wrong? Meet the Walters, a human family whose robot, Razorball, ominous­ly spends his free time in the ga­rage working on machines which they’re pretty sure are designed to kill them in this sci-fi satire from Mark Russell (The Flintstones, Second Coming) and Mike Deoda­to Jr. (The Amazing Spider-Man, The Resistance).”
