Featuring design work from Production I.G. / Ghost in the Shell SAC designer Paul Nicholson, and artwork from Javier Bordon, Super Robot Mayhem #1 is the first in a planned five issue run. Heavy Metal / Missed Deadline’s Jeremy Biggs is the lead writer on the project, along with newcomer Adrian Mursec.
Imagine Neon Genesis Evangelion, Gundam Wing, Mazinger Z and Transformers, as directed by Ridley Scott, with production design by Akira’s Katsuhiro Otomo, Syd Mead and H.R. Giger, and you’re in the right area for Super Robot MAYHEM!
Raiden Nakamura is an engineer on the research mining vessel Theseus on a mission to find resources in the Kuiper Belt. When they discover the ruins of an ancient super robot (MAYHEM) buried deep into the rock of an asteroid, they unwittingly set in motion a chain of events that attracts the attention of the Demon Imperial Alliance (DIA).
Called onwards by Mayhem’s presence, the DIA fly to our solar system to battle humanity and steal the technology for themselves.
Assisted by his colleagues, and suffering from increasing psychosis due to his link with MAYHEM, Raiden must defend the solar system from the invading imperial force.
