Fantastic series and beautiful artwork. ( )
Graphic Novel Book Club November 2015:
This serious was some grade A, sci-Fi, very awesome. I was swept away in how it was told, and who the view pointers were. The way reveals were handled, and the flashbacks in the memory. I love the differences between races and creations. I love the already being slowly tugged together found family and half dozen plots that have strings that have been getting pulled. This one is now on my pull for the coming year(s).
Interesting art and somewhat less interesting story of run in between civilization of several sentient species, including humans, and AI robots current and past. The aliens were interesting sort of - aside from one bluish elf-like sort they all seemed fantasy/ET/horror derived and of course the one that threaten our MCs are all ugly.
I liked this a lot and it's got me really curious about what's going to happen next and how everything fits together. The art was cool and different, kind of sketchy, but then more defined in certain frames. I wasn't sure if I liked it at first, but by the time I was halfway through it I was digging it. My favorite character is definitely the killer driller robot. Hope he sticks around.
Ooh, well I am intrigued. The pacing is perfect, including how new ideas/characters/traits are unveiled. The characters are compelling, the action engaging, the universe complex. Can't wait to continue with the next volume.

"Ten years after planet-sized robots called Harvesters appeared and wreaked havoc across the galaxy, a young robot named TIM-21 wakes to find that all robots have been outlawed. But TIM may hold the secrets to the Harvesters in his machine DNA and he quickly becomes the most wanted robot in the universe. With bounty hunters and threats lurking at every turn, TIM embarks on a mind-blowing adventure through the stars along with his robot dog, Bandit, and the lumbering mining droid, Driller"--Page 4 of cover.
