“machine boythe eccentricity and charm of [are] undeniable”, Francis Manapul, who has worked on a number of DC titles like the flash, bat girl, Detective comics and more, said of the graphic novel. “Their minimalist approach to storytelling elicits a wide range of emotions accomplished only by creators who are at the top of their game. In the span of a single chapter, I laughed, choked back tears, and then I cheered on this adorable android. This should be perennial reading for readers of all ages.”
