Reviews - What do customers think about Popbot #7 (Popbot)?
Style, yes, but substance? Mar 17, 2007
The art attracted me to this book, a series I hadn't noticed before. Robots, babes, edgy art and subdued title typography, and a kitty - hey, even if there's no story, that can keep me going for a while.
The problem, I think, is that there may be a touch too much story, spread out over volumes that I haven't read. There's an alternate universe out there, with WW4 "in its final and tumultuous months" during 1984 and with a burgeoning robot industry looking towards a post-military product line. The cute kitty appears in a brief interlude, and we find out that he's some kind of freak. Oh, and Andy Warhol puts in an appearance. I'm not sure it makes narrative sense (I'm not sure there's a narrative), but his jagged streaks of stark white hair goes well with the jagged streaks of the stark artwork.
So, I'm not quite sure what I'm looking at, or how much that matters. I'm not quite sure how much I like it, but I do like it some. It's a fair first-time experience with this series and with the artist (Ashley Wood), and good enough to bring me back at least once or twice more.
