He's also an artist on Prophet, which is one of the best comics out there

This is a very fun collab and we're stoked to be working with Giannis. The MGU is just a cool design.

Just a good dude making comics and putting them up for free to read online

This looks promising, hey if ThreeA isn't going to make their own bots anymore at least they can make others...

Though I must say, the design is pretty obviously just a Landmate ala Shirow's old design:



But hey, who cares right? I've seen so many mechanical designs practically everything out there has a piece of something in it. Guess that's why I like(d) WWR so much...

the story is also VERY Appleseed-ish at least per description i read. just re-read the Appleseed manga so its fresh in mind. assuming its a homage to shirow which is cool so going to peep comic online.

wht i liked about WWR and wht got me hooked early was that the designs were unlike anything i had seen, the bertie and the bramble i.e.. so ugly in good way.

Like I said, doesn't really bother me much - if it means we're getting a 1/12th Landmate (minus some arms) with awesome 3A weathering then I'm all in. Very Happy

I read two volumes of this a few years back (think 1 and 2) - it was pretty nice with lots of Manga and a touch of grumpy old man Dredd in it. Top comic. Folks should hunt it down.

The overlay looks like an actual sculpted face, Looks like is has some character to it.
