215 INK FINDS A ROBOT WITH DADDY ISSUES
“Father Robot” created by Kristopher White (“The Thirty Six”) and Sam Garland
to debut digitally from 215Ink starting January 2014.
Los Angeles, CA (Thurs, Oct. 31st, 2013) – Publisher 215 Ink adds another talented set of newcomers to their growing roster of creator-owned books. “Father Robot”, created by Kristopher White & Sam Garland, tells the tale of the world’s first self-aware mech on a mission to rescue a little girl from a warzone. The robot happens to believe it is her Dad.
“Father Robot was another undiscovered treasure of the indie community, one we’re know will be a great fit with the rest of our lineup,” said 215 Ink editor Michael Perkins.
“We’re very excited to partner up with an amazing publisher like 215 Ink. They represent everything that’s great about indie comics,” said writer Kristopher White. White’s previous work includes the critically acclaimed “The Thirty Six” (www.The36.net). White’s partner on the book is artist Sam Garland, a self-published comics illustrator and recent MFA graduate from San Francisco’s Academy of Art University.
Based in a fictional world, the story follows Father Robot, the world’s first ever mech unit to achieve self-awareness. Sent to rescue a little girl from a war-torn city, Father Robot believes itself to be her actual dad. The book follows the two’s journey to safety, pursued by enemies and those who would use Father Robot for their own purposes.
