The series comes by way of Melissa Flores and Diogenes Neves launching the NacelleVerse’s action figure icons on April 17th, 2024!

“We’re going on a heist! Working with Nacelle and Oni Press to create an original prequel to the RoboForce animated series in comic form has been an incredible adventure,” said writer Melissa Flores. “This miniseries will dive deeper into Maxx 89 and Detonator’s complicated relationship, showing us their true motivations and state of mind as they figure out their place in futuristic Chicago. It will be an action-packed three issues that will complement the upcoming animated series perfectly. You won’t want to miss it!”

As a member of RoboForce–the crew of highly advanced androids redefining technological advancement on 22nd-century Earth–there’s no job too big for him to handle.
