The challenge is made. As our willful heroine Rosa succeeds in securing more human job opportunities, the effort inadvertently displaces construction bot WOL-421313, leading the frustrated, newly unemployed robot to follow a fundamental tenet in robot society and solve his grievance by challenging Rosa to the first ever robot-human fight.

    Metal Society #2 by Kaplan and Balbi continues their stellar worldbuilding as readers get a look at the robot society and its social dynamics. Rather than sticking to the stereotypical science fiction plots usually present in Human vs Robot storylines, Kaplan turns them on their heads with a refreshing take. The art team of Balbi and Lesko once again delivered art that perfectly matched the tone of each panel. Overall, this is exactly what a second issue should look like and is definitely worth picking up. Read Full Review

    The challenge with a series like Metal Society is to take each issue on its own terms. Two installments into a five-part story, the series is still very much a work in progress. It's difficult to tell where everything is headed, and the final themes that Kaplan and company will explore won't be totally apparent until the smoke clears on the final issue. So far, Kaplan is telling an interesting enough story to keep the pages turning. Read Full Review

    Nothing here in Metal Society thus far has been genre-defining by any means, but it remains a very enjoyable sci-fi story for now. Read Full Review
