‘Mo-Bot High’ Combines Giant Robots, Schoolgirls, Pure Awesome [Exclusive Preview]
Between figuring out classes, making new friends and dealing with the harsh judgment of the “cool” kids, it’s pretty tough to start at a new high school, but at least you don’t have to deal with giant robots coming out of cell phones and trying to stomp you into paste. Unless, of course, you’re Asha, the star of Neill Cameron’s amazing new graphic novel, Mo-Bot High.
If you’re a fan of things that are awesome, you may remember Cameron from his Internet-beloved A to Z of Awesomeness project, but with its combination of giant robot smackdowns and schoolyard politics, Mo-Bot High manages to top even MODOK’s Melancholy Mouseketeer Memories as my favorite thing Cameron’s ever done. Strong words, I know, but if that’s not enough to get you interested, don’t worry: ComicsAlliance has an exclusive look at the first 12 pages!
For more, check out Cameron’s blog and the Mo-Bot High website! And while it’s not widely available in America yet, you can get on board early and get your own copy of the oversized Mo-Bot High hardcover for less than fifteen bucks with free worldwide shipping from The Book Depository!
