Review:

*I received an ecopy of this book via Edelweiss. This has not influenced my review.*

So it turns out that despite not usually being a big fan of regular anthologies, I am a fan of comic anthologies, and this one was a lot of fun! I didn’t love every single story, but I did enjoy many of them, and altogether as a whole I really liked this.

There was a wonderful assortment of stories—no two felt the same, which is really cool considering they were all based around the pretty narrow theme of robot smut. There was a great range of emotions, art styles, relationships, and pairings. Some of the relationships were purely physical, some were couples just starting a relationship, others were already established couples. There were M/F, M/M, F/F, and possibly some non-binary pairings. Some of the stories were just sex, some had more of a story and/or message. Some were more explicit than others. There were POC characters in many of the stories. I just found the whole thing to have a great variety.

Also, the whole thing was in full color, so it was a joy to look at.

I won’t review every individual story, but there were a couple standouts for me, and I’ve definitely found some writers/artists I want to look into:

– Little Universe Machine by Aud Koch was my favorite. It wasn’t so much a story but a look into a character, but the character was lovable, the message was beautiful, and the art was absolutely stunning. I would hang this art on my wall.

– Vanilla Game by Fiona Staples was just fun, and I loved that it eschewed the typical M/F sexual roles usually found in books/comics. Plus I love her art style.

– Employee of the Month by Myisha Haynes had a cute, little story about a human and his android coworker with just the right amount of sexiness and fun ridiculousness, and the art was great.

Overall, this was a great comic anthology with nice variety, and I’d definitely recommend it to anyone who wants to read about some sexy robots!

    I actually tend to feel nothing for the ‘machine’ characters in books. The one I seem to like most is Iko in the Lunar Chronicles but otherwise, I tend not to care for them? I like that even though you don’t really like anthologies for books it is working for comic anthologies instead ^.^

      Ahhhh no! Maybe you just haven’t read about the right robots yet ;-) Honestly though, for me, they’re just like any other character. If they’re interesting and well-written, then I’ll prob like them. Yes, I legit want more comic anthologies now, I love them!

    Sounds pretty good. I always like stuff that takes a look at cyborg love kinda stuff lol since it seems like that coming anyway, at some point. And are AI’s people too? Glad this was good, and yay for the variety!

      Robots are the new vampires. They’re everywhere all the sudden! And yeah, it’s totally coming, so maybe it’s best we start getting used to it 😬 I actually came across a book recently and couldn’t really figure out if it was sci-fi or contemporary. Found out one character is a sex-bot salesman. I figured, oh, well, surely this must be sci-fi then! Looked it up. Turns out sex bots with AI already exist 😶

        “Robots are the new vampires.” Love that haha! And right? It’s already here. Albeit in a very iffy, rudimentary form perhaps lolol. But I think this is gonna be all over sci-fi pretty soon?

    Looks like an interesting anthology, glad you enjoyed it and that there was a variety of pairings to be seen in it. It both shows good representation and means that it doesn’t feel stale reading the same type of story each time.
