May 23, 2018, Mt. Laurel, NJ: Dynamite Entertainment is proud to announce the greatest crossover you didn’t see coming, Robots Vs Princesses #1! Heading up this grand mash-up of fantasy and sci-fi is the creative team of writer Todd Matthy (Saga of the Stormriders: the Lost Prince) and artist Nicolas Chapuis (World of Fiction). An all-ages story for the whole family that combines the fairy tale world of princesses and dragons with the action-packed science fiction epic of giant robots. But the princesses are no damsels in distress here, as it’s up to Zara and her robot friend Wheeler to save the Kingdom.
The comic event of the year has arrived! When plucky Princess Zara stumbles upon the Decimator defector Wheeler, she sets in motion events that will pit the spritely cleverness of fairy tale princesses against the raw power of giant robots! The dream match you never thought you’d see begins here. Don’t miss it!
“’All-ages fun that does not talk down to children. The book that bridges the gap between brother and sister while at the same time delighting parents.’ That would be my quote,” says writer Todd Matthy. “I wanted to create a comic for kids that not only respected their intelligence and curiosity, but their desire to become ‘grownups.’ I also wanted to create a comic that parents could read over and over again to their kids and not be bored by. A book they’d enjoy, too. If parents and children want to know what happens next, it’ll foster a love of reading and a mutually shared experience. Also, I wanted to create a book that adults without children could enjoy because it transports them back to their childhood.”
After a successful Kickstarter campaign, Dynamite is now bringing the series to comic shops everywhere. And Robots Vs Princesses already has some big-name support behind it.
"Finding this comic was a delightful surprise." - Mark Waid (Kingdom Come, All-New Avengers, Archie)
“Fantastic fantasy from a promising newcomer” -David Lloyd (V for Vendetta, Aces Weekly)
"Fabulous and entertaining" –Ron Friedman (Writer: Transformers: The Movie)
“Todd and Nic have done an amazing job of creating this world that any kid would immediately fall in love with. Even adults. Legally, I’m an adult and I think this is awesome,” Admitted Editor Kevin Ketner. “I’m excited for kids and parents to read about this tough, cool princess and her friends joining up with robots to destroy evil. If that doesn’t appeal to you, you don’t know how to have fun.”
