Dynamite Entertainment has announced it is teaming with comic book writer Todd Matthy, and artist Nicolas Chapuis to bring the four-issue children’s fantasy tale, Robots vs. Princesses, to life. The story about courage, friendship, and acceptance is an all ages book and is scheduled to arrive in April 2018.
Robots vs. Princesses, the fun, action-packed, pop-culture mash up of fairy tale princesses and giant robot anime follows the beautiful Princess Zara as she sets off on her quest to find a dragon. But along the way, she instead crosses paths with a robot named Wheeler. The two join forces, and along with Zara’s friends, the pair must repel an impending robot invasion. Robots vs. Princesses is an all ages sci-fi/fantasy mash up that aspires to be the greatest animated movie never made!
In a press release from Dynamite Entertainment, Todd Matthy said, “I am beyond happy that Dynamite picked up Robots vs. Princesses. Dynamite’s publishing line includes revised classic heroes like The Shadow and Green Hornet, rock stars like GWAR and KISS, creator-owned work like The Boys, all-ages fare like Grumpy Cat, and of course, the graphic adaptation of Game of Thrones. Such a diverse array of titles and creators makes Dynamite the perfect home for Robots vs. Princesses.”
Todd Matthy is an elementary school teacher who has had articles and interviews published with various top news and entertainment websites, and has self-published his own short fiction and comics. Robots vs. Princesses is his first work for a major publisher, and certainly not his last!
Robots vs. Princesses #1 will arrive in April 2018 and will be available in print and digital copies.
