Staff Reviews

These are not the Go-Bots you are thinking of! Tom Scioli takes your favorite cheap Transformers knock-offs and composes his own bizarre psychedelic masterpiece through a kaleidoscopic Jack Kirby lens.  A ton of manic, goofy fun!


— From Seth's Picks


A new spin on classic action figure nostalgia bursts off the page in this inventive nod to the titans of golden age comics.

They say they're here to help us, but are they here to replace us? Go-Bots have changed our way of life. Leader-1 is a self-aware fighter jet on a hostage rescue mission with his partner, Commander Nick Burns. Scooter is the personal transport and best friend to undergrad A.J. Foster. Turbo is Matt Hunter's transforming race car in the hottest sport in America, Go-Bot Racing. Cy-Kill is the champion of the illegal, underground Go-Bot Fighting League.

A modern sci-fi epic updating the story of the classic 1980s toy line, from the incomparable Tom Scioli, creator of American Barbarian.

Praise For…

"Feel a love, a primal, youthful, pristine affection for these big honking car guys, for the act of illustration, the medium of comics… Tom Scioli’s Go-Bots are punk rock." -Doom Rocket

"The series never takes itself too seriously, and with Scioli fitting so much into each issue, every chapter lasts much longer than the typical modern comic book." -You Don't Read Comics

"A rollicking, exuberant throw-back, a perfect simulation of a child's tale as put together by a master craftsman." -Comicosity
