The year is 1984...
The year is 1984. Washed-up mechanic Chuck Carducci is contacted by an old roommate from his MIT days to team up on a new project using cutting-edge artificial intelligence. With salvaged electronics from NASA’s Jet Propulsion Lab, high-performance van parts, and a plutonium-ion battery dubiously procured by a mysterious financial backer, Chuck builds a robot so human, yet so powerful, it can only be called VANDROID! Chuck puts everything he ever wished he was into Vandroid, and the robot now has a chance to fulfill his creator’s lost potential.
VANDROID the graphic novel is out now.

“If you enjoyed the low-rent science fiction and action movies of the 1980′s with tough guys, big guns, and bigger hair, then you will love not only this book but the whole Vandroid experience…the book (and the project as a whole) doesn’t feel at all like mockery or satire but instead like a detailed, entertaining homage to a genre and a time gone by.” – Panel Patter
“We’re in vintage ’80s territory, where Greed creates monsters, enlists vulnerable creative egos to chase its sunk costs, and the result is destruction that can end only with Greed’s redemption or an awe-inspiring display of superior firepower.” – Comics Bulletin

“Vandroid perfectly captures the fearful wonderment I’d feel as a kid when I’d walk down an aisle of the video store and stare at lurid VHS covers for movies my dad would never let me rent.” – Death-Ray Ozone
