Comic Book Review: Astrobots #1

By Nolan P. Smith


Astrobots #1, published by WhatNot Press, is a thrilling comic book that takes readers on an exciting journey into space. Written by Simon Furman, the creator of Marvel’s Death’s Head and writer of the original Transformers comic series, and illustrated by Hector Trunnec, a Heavy Metal artist, this Mecha-Masterwork is based on the popular toyline designed by Aaron Thomas from Toy Notch.

The story follows a group of sophisticated machine lifeforms known as Astrobots who are sent to explore far-flung worlds in the hopes of finding a new home for humanity. As the clock ticks down for planet Earth and resources dwindle, the Astrobots face numerous challenges, including a catastrophic power struggle that leads to the creation of an all-Astrobot society led by Atlas. However, the arrival of the long-lost Astrobot Apollo threatens to upend Atlas’s plans and the fate of humankind.

Furman’s writing is top-notch, creating a fantastic introduction to the world of Astrobots that would satisfy any Transformers fan. Trunnec’s artwork is stunning, with a beautiful watercolor-like aesthetic that brings these robots to life. The artwork is awe-inspiring, from Apollo’s emergence from the desert with his tattered shroud to the detailed depictions of the various Astrobots.

As a first-time reader of a WhatNot title, I was thoroughly impressed with Astrobots #1 and can’t wait to see what adventures lie ahead for these machines. I highly recommend this comic book to any sci-fi or action fan looking for an exciting read. Astrobots #1 receives a well-deserved rating of FIVE Pastrami Nations out of FIVE.
