There’s a car going around taking brains. And where one crazy concept stemmed from a single joke, you’ll find curator of Studio Cinco and comics writer and artist, Ian Cinco.
Now live on Kickstarter, Neon Spring Issue #0: This Car Neutralizes Douchebags is a mind-bending, science fiction, cyberpunk series about humans, cyborgs, A.I. and all manner of machines battling for dominance. Dive a bit deeper, and explore shifting identities and consciousness, nature and machines merging and evolving as one.
Neon Spring Issue #0: This Car Neutralizes Douchebags introduces the Skull Squad and Mother, a car fitted with a superintelligent A.I., lobotomizing and extracting brains, only to refit them with a device to control the entire body.
‘After a brain-picking mission goes astray, Skull Squad finds Zuzu, an apparent sexbot, to help lure their target into the car. Their attempt to salvage the mission is a success, but Zuzu is not what she seems and with her comes the specter of the Neon Giant.
It’s a twisted and epic journey of Master Skull, his daughter Araina, Baby Skull, her infatuation with the mighty robot Zuzu, and Mother’s rise to omnipotence of superintelligence.’
