Former HELLSPAWN artist Ashley Wood is following his art book UNO FANTA: THE ART OF ASHLEY WOOD with POPBOT, described as "a stylized work of fiction and illustration that explores the realms of creativity like none before."
POPBOT #1 will be published by Idea + Design Works in January. The 48-page, duo-tone book will retail for $7.99.
Wood, who is the artist of WildStorm's upcoming AUTOMATIC KAFKA, is writing and drawing the book. POPBOT will include contributors from artists such as Mike Mignola and David Mack.
Here's how Idea + Design Works describes the book:
"POPBOT takes place in a future unlike anything we've ever seen. It features a cat with 'NSYNC-like popularity in the world of pop music on the run from shady characters that demand payment on a large debt. He travels with Popbot, his former roadie and now protector, who is also mistaken for an intergalactic outlaw. Unlike the famous feline, Popbot is someone whose path you don't want to cross - even on a sunny day. This is a 48-page, self-contained adventure in modern pulp fiction that leaves the door wide open for more."
