"Everybody Loves Ro-Man" #1

Everybody Loves Ro-Man #1

A new comic strip based on the characters of "Robot Monster", A 1953 Black and White American Science Fiction film directed by Phil Tucker.

It is considered to be one of the worst films ever made. The general plot of the movie revolves around the monstrous titular character attempting to destroy the last family on planet Earth but bizarrely finds himself falling in love with the daughter of said family.

The film's very low budget did not allow for a complete robot costume so the director hired his friend George Barrows, Who had his own Gorilla suit to play the main character Ro-Man.

This issue is one of potentially six short issues that will tell a comical version of the ill fated film's history through the eyes of the man playing Ro-Man.

Certain aspects of the story like Ro-Man dreaming of the film's success has been fabricated but the main story of the film will remain relatively unchanged.
