Hi there, I love comics with robots, and I'm currently reading all of IDW's Transformers series, as well as Atomic Robo. Any other suggestions for good robot comics? (Other comics I like include Kelly Sue DeConnick's Captain Marvel, Gail Simone's old run on Birds of Prey, and the current Guardians of the Galaxy, if that helps.) Thank you!
Robot Comics, eh?

D4VE #4 page 2 - 5COTTY GETS N4UGHTY (again)
Art & Colors by Valentin Ramon
Script by Ryan Ferrier
You can see that Valentin absolutely KILLED this page. The final lettered page differs slightly from the script—on D4VE we were lucky to have total freedom to make edits to dialogue and placement in the final lettering phase. On this page it’s not incredibly substantial, but there were a lot of jokes throughout the series that were added after the script was done.
Along with the biting self-reflection and fantasy-induced catharsis, one of the real pleasures of making D4VE was getting to write a lot of masturbation gags and funny insults. My only regret is that we didn’t go for the hat-trick when it comes to 5COTTY jerkin’ it at inappropriate times/places.
We’re filthy, and we’ve come to terms with that.
How cool is this? Comixology announced today at SDCC, that many of their titles—from select publishers—are now DRM FREE! This means you can download those precious issues in glorious PDF or CBZ formats.
But the most coolest thing is that D4VE is among those titles—as are all of the amazing comics from Monkeybrain.
So if you haven’t yet checked it out, head on over there and get the entire five-issue series of D4VE for less than #5—and you can download them, DRM free.
Show NotesDark Horse Addiction is back again!Leo and Charles get back into the swing of things by discussing White Suits #4 as the main topic, and getting a discussion of non-Dark Horse D4VE in as well, thanks to some
Big, huge thanks to Leo and Charles for all the D4VE love on their newest episode of Dark Horse Addiction*. Super freaking cool. Give it a listen, it’s a great show, and there’s some much deserved love for Monkeybrain in there.
*Note: D4VE has no affiliation with the fine folks at Dark Horse, but we appreciate it so much nonetheless—we’re invading the airspaces muahaha.

D4VE #5 by Ryan Ferrier and Valentin Ramon is some of the most fun action comedy I’ve seen in comics in ages. I loved every second of this one and hope to see so much more from both these talented storytellers. Kickin’ Ace!
I know you’re aching for more of Valentin Ramon’s art (who the heck isn’t?) so here’s a pin-up the D4VE maestro did for DOC UNKNOWN.
If you’re unfamiliar (which you shouldn’t be), DOC UNKNOWN is the crazy-cool hit comic from writer Fabian Rangel Jr. and artist Ryan Cody. Check out the first four issues right here on comixology—I know they’ve got more on the way. It’s very great comics.
ICYMI: D4VE #5 is out now! Get the complete five-issue series for 0.99 each…that’s over 100 pages of monster-punching, robo-jerkin’, mid-life crisis havin’ comics goodness for less than #5.
