tbyarI have been stuck in a void of reading older stories recently, so I thought I would delve into something hot off the shelves.  That’s Because You’re a Robot colourfully grabbed my attention and I was instantly intrigued.

 

Matt and Jeff are two gun ho and frankly rubbish cops, one of them is a robot but no one (themselves included) know which one it is.  Through being useless they are demoted to stakeout duty and end up getting involved in something way over their heads and chaos ensues.  thats-because-youre-a-robot-kane-quantick-01

The story is wonderfully silly and bursts with colour, the pop art style is brilliant in this one-shot setting, but if it was any longer than 30 pages you may have came out with a migraine.  The plot is fairly straight forward and simple but is executed frustratingly well.  You’ll understand what I mean when you read it, you start off not knowing anything and end up knowing almost less.

I must say the journey is great fun though and you’ll feel like it was three quid well spent.

    Sheep are utterly dependent upon the shepherd: if one gets lost, it is unable to find its way back home.
    Someone with a balanced third eye chakra clearly knows where
    he or she is going. Those facing North bear
    the Abhaya (fearlessness) mudra, while those in the East show the Bhumisparsha (earth-touching)
    gesture.
