by Vincent Stall
Robot Investigator by Vincent Stall (Things You Carry) follows a lonely robot on an expedition to a mysterious planet that looks a lot like Earth. The story unfolds like a parallel universe Wall-E as the robot explores what appears to be a pristine landscape. He meets curious gerbil-like animals and stumbles on… a band of feral humans. Who were they? Why did they turn into wild men? Robot Investigator is both sweet and melancholy, cute and grisly. Stall’s silent sequences are drawn with an inky, lush. Over a decade ago, Robot Investigator was one of the first of a new wave of art comics. Now Vincent Stall’s masterpiece returns in full expressionistic color. The book also includes a brand new story and sixteen-page robot parts catalog.
Vincent Stall is an artist, cartoonist, and designer. He lives in Minneapolis, Minnesota, with his wife and daughter.
