D4VE is a series from Monkeybrain Comics, penned by Ryan Ferrier and illustrated by Valentin Ramon, about a former hero who used to fight monsters and aliens while protecting the planet, but having vanquished his enemies, now finds the monotony of everyday life grinding him down, stuck in a soul-sucking desk job as an account manager for the water power-plant, suffering through an epic mid-life crisis.
D4VE is a robot. Who lives on an Earth inhabited solely by robots. Because, seriously now, in the final confrontation between man and machine, flesh and bone loses every time. But with all his battles won, D4V3 is lost, pining over his glory days.
Based on the first two issues, D4VE may get the opportunity to live them. But not without dealing with the mess he’s made of his family and professional life.
Part action/adventure, part comedy, D4V3 is a brilliantly innovative sci-fi comic from two creators you should definitely keep an eye on. Let’s see if the Thoughtballooners can do their robot hero justice!
