CG/Traditional Cartoon Mash-Up RoboChuck Returns to Comixology

robojuckFollowing a successful launch that saw issue one reach its second printing, RoboChuck’s story continues, pulling fans even deeper into the conflict of old versus new. And on Wednesday, May 28, the critically acclaimed second issue makes its debut on comiXology.

“…you’d be doing yourself a disservice if you didn’t check it out.” – Black Ship Books

“…RoboChuck stand[s] out amongst the fray as a unique comic series of its time.” – Fanboy Comics

“I wasn’t ready for this issue to end, and I wanted to read more.” – Fanboys Talking

In the World of Entertainment, cartoons are real.

Once upon a time, classically drawn characters were cinematic royalty, and audiences loved them. Stars like Inksplat MaGee entertained packed theaters around the globe, creating laughter with their trademark brand of black and white slapstick comedy. Life was good.

Then the world changed. A fellow named Don Masshurter created a thing called a computer. Suddenly, almost without warning, it was the CGs that were selling out shows. Flat toons like Inksplat MaGee couldn’t get work, and the old stars were simply forgotten.

Enter RoboChuck. Made on a computer but raised by Flats, he is unwittingly the most important toon in the world. Too bad he’s stuck doing low-budget TV commercials for a living.

In the second issue, continue the journey with all of your favorite characters…as well as some new ones…and root for the would-be-hero you can’t help but love!

Created by television art director Chris Callahan (Shear Madness, Extra), RoboChuck offers a unique graphic style and a lighthearted story fit for all ages.

RoboChuck is available digitally on comiXology and Kindle, and in print at robochuck.com/shop.html. Print copies and other merchandise will also be available at various conventions this year, including the upcoming Long Beach Comic Expo (May 31-June 1) and the San Diego Comic-Con in July.
