Product description

Asha's new school is insane. Everyone has giant robots that launch out of their mobile phones! She's only been there five minutes when the school bully challenges her to a fight. So now it's not just about figuring out who's cool and who isn't. She has to learn to pilot her Mo-bot. And fast. But while Asha gets to grips with her Mo-bot's moves and customises her DMC, she's being watched...Her piloting skills are about to be put to the ultimate test, and there's nothing her new friends can do to help. This title presents thrilling titanic battles from the DFC Library.

Author information

Born and raised in Oxford, Neill Cameron has been drawing comics pretty much since he could hold a pencil. For several years Neill was active in the UK small press and independent comics scene. In 2006 Neill's work on the all-ages action adventure strip Bulldog: Empire was featured in the first Mammoth Book of Best New Manga, his own self-published webcomic Thumpculture was shortlisted for an IMAF (International Manga and Anime Festival) award, and he took the jump into working full-time as a freelance writer and artist. Neill holds masters degrees in Philosophy and Information Technology. Mo-Bot High is Neill's most ambitious and - by far - most AWESOME project to date.

Review quote

"From that very first page it's just a fantastic, uncontrollable riot of a story, absolutely brilliant fun ... Grange Hill with giant manga-style robots" Forbidden Planet "Nothing short of brilliant and a must-read for any graphic novel-loving boys of aged 9+ ... Mr Cameron's work is incredibly dynamic and bursting with colour during the superb robot fight action sequences, and then suitably toned down for the day-to-day school scenes ... In Mo-Bot High Neill Cameron has delivered a modern comic book that has strong appeal to both boys and girls and he should be commended for this" Book Zone For Boys "Neill Cameron updates Transformers for a new generation ... But there is a lot more going on here than giant robots and spectacular fight scenes - the sinister dinner ladies, and ominous comments about Asha being 'the Harbinger' give this a touch of Doctor Who-style mystery alongside the technological awesomeness" Armadillo Magazine "Mo-Bot High is a winning fusion of the sensibilities of the school-based serials of British Girls weeklies of the '70s and '80s with a contemporary Manga influence ... Playground politics combine with dark conspiracies in a strip which can be succinctly described as Grange Hill meets The Transfomers" Broken Frontier
