Mega Robo Bros 2: Mega Robo Rumble
Publisher: David Fickling Books
Alex and Freddy are like most brothers. They fight among themselves and irritate their parents. But Alex and Freddy just happen to be the most advanced and powerful robots on earth.
In a futuristic London, not all robots are working for good – and when an underground army of discarded, misfit droids seem determined to get revenge on humankind (and on Alex and Freddy’s mum, in particular), they have their work cut out to forget their squabbles and save the day.
This visually rich and exciting comic book is funny, inclusive and divided into manageable chapters. The familiarity of the everyday contrasts beautifully with the dream of being a superhero, and the characters are distinctive and celebrate a world of diversity.
This is Alex and Freddy’s second adventure and, while it stands alone as a story, is likely to be enjoyed most if you have read the first book.
