SLG Goes Robot with new series Model A
ROBOTS HAVE HEART TOO
Model A Comic Book Brings 1920’s Feel to 21st Century Comics
San Jose, CA – 6/18/2012 – Robots come in all shapes, sizes and models and are becoming more and more a part of our daily lives. SLG Publishing’s new series Model A by Jef Bambas’ everything we know about robots goes topsy-turvy when a machine built to serve is snapped out of his dull and uniform existence and discovers a world outside the confines of the one he was built to live in.
Model A, gets a nasty bump on the head, he is released from his drone-like state and able to explore a brand new existence he never knew. But along the way, he comes across trials to test his own strength and trust in this strange life he has stumbled into. “Model A is about a robot that finds himself alone in a strange world that is seemingly out to get him, ” said creator Jef Bambas “and has to discover not only where he is and who he can trust, but who he is and what he stands for.”
Despite the serious tone, Model A possesses a sense of humor that is not often associated with comics about robots. Using zero dialogue, Bambas gives a vintage, silent film feel to the otherwise futuristic comic. Model A is a labor of love for creator Bambas who crafted the characters in the series years ago and played with ideas on how to create a world for them. Combining with the hilarity of slap-stick comedy usually seen on shows like The Three Stooges, Model A creates a comfortable home for both dramatic and humorous situations. SLG publisher Dan Vado, has been pleased with the results. “Slap-stick! Robots! That’s the proverbial two great tastes. You can’t go wrong with that,”
