Robot Vol. 1 is an all-color manga compilation and edited by the elite manga artist Range Murata, character designer for Studio Gonzo's Last Exile and Blue Submarine No. 6. His hand-picked contributors come together in a mind blowing experiment of what happens when top manga artists work in the unusual medium of color. From Range Murata's picturesque portrayal of a long and hot motorcycle ride through the countryside to Yoshitoshi Abe's tale of dark fantasy resembleing a D&D campaign gone horribly wrong, narrative diversity competes with high level artistic experimentation in this monumental work.
