Mytek The Mighty, the new comic I wrote, is now out from 2000AD in their new Smash! Special. It’s like a cross between Pacific Rim and Godzilla, about a giant robot gorilla being revived by a Nigerian professor and a Ghanaian-American tech billionaire.
Congrats to co-conspirators Anand Radhakrishnan & Deeganto Joardar, with whom this story was brought to life. Big ups to the 2000AD team, who were super. You can get the print or digital from the 2000AD shop.
Ahead of the release, I also spoke with Michael Molcher of 2000AD’s Thrill-Cast Lockdown Tapes. Listen below.
