#3 - World War Robot Complete

After a bit of a hiatus in posts it's time to catch up. First up is Ashley Wood's World War Robot Complete. WWR is, at first glance, an art book with seemingly disconnected snippets of text strewn about in letters, communications, etc. The artwork is outstanding and truly speaks more than words could to create a rich world that draws you in as well as any novel. Mankind has split into two factions, those on Earth are fanatically religious and the atheists have jumped ship to Mars. An enterprising figure based out of the Moon creates the robots that help each side wage war against each other while he profits from it all. It's an awesome book and also the background for some of the most amazing toys ever created by Ashley's company Three A Toys.
