Official Press Release
Boston, MA – 2004 Eisner Award winner Keith Giffen returns to Komikwerks! Komikwerks Presents: Rockets & Robots is the newest comics anthology collection from Komikwerks, which features creator-owned short stories from such comic pros as Keith Giffen, who co-created and wrote 3 of the 14 stories in the book.
As in the past three Komikwerks collections, the book is filled out by a roster of great comics and animation pros, like Wildstorm artist Eric Canete, Image Comics' Dawn Brown, Batman and JLA inker Aaron Sowd, Spider-Man penciller and X-Men animated producer Will Meugniot, The Batman storyboard artist Vinton Heuck, Kubert School grads Chris Chua and Matt Jacobs, Image and Marvel artist (and Komikwerks co-founder) Shannon Denton, as well as talented newcomers like Armand Villavert Jr., Eddie Trigueros, Damion Hendricks, and Tim Chupka.
"I know what you're thinking," says Patrick Coyle, Komikwerks co-founder and writer/creator of Bixby Grant, Private Eye, "You're thinking 'what if I don't like rockets OR robots? What does this book offer me?' And the answer to that is 'Plenty!' In addition to some sci-fi stories, Rockets and Robots has horror, action, humor, kung fu, and tons of other stuff – it's like all the Komikwerks anthologies, there's something in there for everyone!"
