Abstract:

"Academy Award-winning artist Doug Chiang and best-selling science fiction author Orson Scott Card join forces in Robota -- an extraordinary illustrated adventure. Robota follows the fortunes of our hero Caps, as he navigates an ancient, decaying world in which a dwindling human population battles a society of merciless robot warriors. Aided by sentient animals and stalked by terrifying hunter robots, Caps fights to unravel his past and to create a future for himself and his planet, slowly rising to fulfill an awesome destiny. A riveting tale of love, betrayal, and revenge, Chiang's vividly imagined story and meticulously rendered paintings, in conjunction with Card's masterful prose, bring to life an electric alter-universe and a battle nothing short of epic.
