Mega Robo Rumble by Neill Cameron
My rating: 3 of 5 stars
Alex and Freddy are brothers. Robot brothers! When duty calls, they're agents of R.A.I.D., an elite government unit that protects the world from robotic attacks. Now they're facing new and terrifying threats: a giant drill-bot is destroying London, Freddy gets famous, and even worse, a mysterious robot twisted with rage is intent on ruthlessly exacting his revenge on R.A.I.D...
I don't read graphic novels as a rule, they are something I want to get into but don't often get the opportunity to. This is the second in a series, one that to be honest I have little interest in, (Robots/Superheroes) but I thought I would give it a go none the less.
This is a bright and highly illustrated graphic novel, which follows the same characters from the first in the series, even though I hadn't read the first, this didn't matter as you could read this as a stand a lone.
This follows two robots, who are brothers, this covers sibling rivalry and how to deal with growing up. I enjoyed that aspect of the story and the more 'real life' parts, for example when they were at school etc.
Overall this was a quick read, one that I wouldn't have chosen but it was a different read and I am pleased I picked it up. The story does end on a cliff hanger so I would like to read the next in the series now just to find out what happens.
If you like sci-fi graphic novels or superhero based ones then I would recommend this to you. The only reason I have given this 3 stars is down to the fact this is not my cup of tea. I would like to thank the publisher for sending this in exchange for an honest review.
