Here’s fun comic adventure with the trusty hardworking robots of Robot City helping solve the crime side-by-side with their human counterparts aboard the Robot City Express train as it hurtles towards a record-breaking trans-continental speed record. Golly, but these comics take on the flavor of classic comics, with a nod to “Murder on the Orient Express” Can Harrison, a lowly conductor-robot solve the mystery of who killed Professor Shimizu to get at the valuable diamonds he was carrying for top-secret quantum physics experiments? Yes, by gosh, he does!

These full-color “retro” comics can be read by newly independent readers, but much of the humor in the parody will appeal to folks who grew up with the golden age of super hero comics. They are a fun comic series for elementary libraries looking for action-packed graphic novels.  Ages  7-10
