Bought this as a present for my 9 year old He absolutely loves these comics Product arrived on time and in excellent condition. A Ridiculously Fun, Action Packed Graphic Novel About Two Robot Brothers Who Take Turns Saving The World Of The Future When They Re Not Fighting Each Other Or Being Grounded By Their Parents London The Future Alex And Freddy Are Just Like Any Other Brothers They Squabble They Drive Their Parents Crazy There S Only One Difference They Re The Most Powerful Robots On Earth But Alex And Freddy Will Soon Discover That They Re Not The Only Super Powered Robots Around For An Evil Robotic Mind Is Making Sinister Plans, And Their Lives Won T Stay Peaceful For Much Longer 7 8 year old boys love this and all other Phoenix stuff Keeps them quiet for ages. Incredibly funny, well written and drawn A must have for any kid, or parent, or robot This series turned my six year old into a massive reader of everything, but Alex Freddy are still his favs. Amazing Book Love the Phoenix Read other Phoenix books Hilarious What s that It s the sound of inevitability Mr Anderson, as once again The Phoenix Presents series serves up a perfect potted slice of comic awesomeness in the shame of Mega Robo Bros Book 1If you ve ever argued with a six or 8 year old, you re going to wholly identify with Freddy and Alex s exasperated parents in Mega Robo Bros Neill Cameron obviously draws on his own parenting experiences heavily here as his series for The Phoenix Comic is deliciously well observed and at the same time creates the sort of comic world that feels realistic and relevant to the sort of things today s kids and parents obsess over.Mega Robo Bros is the story of two robots who just happen to be two of the most advanced mechs on the planet Developed by a super genius and adopted by her and her hubby, Freddy and Alex live in future London and do all the things that you d expect a pair of siblings to do Mainly squabble, fight, do exactly the opposite of what they re told oh and fight nefarious baddies with their robotic superpowers.Dr Sharma their creator and mum has installed a hugely advanced AI in each of them, and as their initial adventure unfolds, we get to see what it s like when you mix amazing robotic superiority with the mind of a child It s truly genius stuff, dipping into but never copying tons of robot and sci fi tropes and making them intrinsic to what is the big draw for kids that despite their obvious superiority, Freddy and Alex are just like any other kid.Things start off relatively peaceful for Freddy and Alex as they go to school, make friends and lead a fairly ordinary life But when a robotic genius threatens to level the city it s time for Freddy and Alex to step up to the plate and show what they re really made of a sort of titanium polyblended alloy over a mechanised combat chassis, just a guess.As you d expect from Neill, the characters in the story are contemporary, relevant and downright book huggingly diverse in all the right ways For Charlotte, the stories are exciting and page turningly brilliant and the current new run of Mega Robo Bros that has just ended in the weekly Phoenix Comic has swiftly become her favourite strip.For me, I have to smile to myself at the brilliant observations of Freddy and Alex s parents, dad wears that totally exasperated slightly hang dog look I sometimes get when I look in the mirror after my daughter has pointed out how unreasonable I am for not letting her eat three peanut butter cups before bedtime Mum is a cerebral genius who also deals with all the things supermums deal with day in day out pretty much like my wife then.Dang, the guy just makes it all look so effortless and easy We ve often said how brilliant it would be if Mo Bot High a similarly mechtastic and brilliant strip that ran for all too short a time in the sadly defunct DFC was revived and ended up coming back from the dead, but for now Mega Robo Bros feels like a brilliant replacement, again offering that same level of making you feel like this is taking place 15 minutes into your own future in a world that feels believable and echoes our own, and doesn t hammer its messages down your throat with a robotic fist.Damned good stuff, damned good. We love this brilliant Mega Robo Bros book It s exciting, adventurous and funny perfect for regular comic readers and those new to comics It would make a great present for children aged 6 and up Neill is a fantastic artist and storyteller, making this one of our favourite comic books. and so am I I would totally read these even if I didn t have kids Thank you for including powerful and positive Muslim female figures, this is exactly the kind of stuff my sons need to be learning about.
