Giant Robot Warriors-The Reissue
Two new reviews have rolled in for the 2007 reissue of my first graphic novel, Giant Robot Warriors, so it's high-time I start ringing the dinner bell for my book.
The reissue is the original book with a new slip-on dust cover featuring new cover art by me!
From Randy Lander at Comic Pants:
"Giant robots and political satire. Not exactly the first two things you think of blending together, but happily, Stuart Moore did, and the result is a story with several fun characters, more than a few laugh-out-loud moments and some really interesting commentary on the modern day state of politics. Using giant robots as a metaphor. Moore is joined in this endeavor by a Ryan Kelly, whose work here shows signs of the amazing style he would show off two years later on Local, but also reminded me at the time of some of the best work of John McCrea… in other words, art that is right at home with over-the-top satire tinged with science-fiction elements...
...If you’re looking for a dose of Ryan Kelly art in between issues of Local, or just a fun, funny book about giant robot warfare with an undercurrent of political satire, Giant Robot Warriors is worth a look. You can find it by looking for the snazzy new cover from Ryan Kelly."
Beau Smith at SBC:
"It is cover to cover mind blowing, eye popping art and story."
The timing for the reissue of Giant Robot Warriors couldn't be better. Last week I was rereading my copy of GRW for the first time in a LONG time. I realized, again, how proud I am of this book and how much work I put into it. There are many instances where I'm still shocked at how much detail I put into the book and how much of an easy and fun read Stuart had crafted out of serious issues and robot warfare. I can't believe I draw ALL THAT!
This is my first Graphic Novel. To celebrate the reissue, i'm going to post some preliminary sketches and art soon.
Anyway, If you at all support what I do, and Stuart, then you'll go out and get this book. At your comic shop. Order it. Buy it.
