Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

Far away in space, there is a planet full of robots able to change from robot form to vehicle form — the Incredible Change-Bots!

Leaving their war-torn planet, the Change-Bots arrive on Earth, where their battle continues — but at what cost?! Part parody, part nostalgic tribute, part moral fable, Jeffrey Brown re-invents the shape changing robot genre into an occasionally stopping action comedy half-full of romance, drama, and epic battles!

The first full-color graphic novel from Jeffrey Brown is an all-ages friendly (only one guy and some robots die) explosion of sci-fi fun!

Review:

"It's all wonderfully silly and, except for a few pungent expressions, genuinely childlike and playful, radiating an aura of being made up as it goes along. Just plain delightful." Booklist

Review:

"This pocket-sized volume is to The Transformers what Avenue Q is to Sesame Street — a mocking, fawning, idiotic, adoring paean to a pop culture phenomenon inseparable from the artist's person. Although allegory without substance, all action and no moral, it's delightful fluff." Library Journal

Review:

"Incredible Change-Bots manages to find the perfect balance between nostalgia and self-aware fun." MTV Splash Page

Review:

"Brown is a master at lunkheadedly awesome sight gags and wordplay....I found myself wiping away tears and laughing out loud in inappropriate public places more times than I would like to mention while reading this book." Ink 19

About the Author

After growing up in Michigan, a 25-year-old Jeffrey Brown moved to Chicago in 2000 to pursue an MFA at the School of the Art Institute. By the time he completed his MFA, he had abandoned painting and started drawing comics seriously. He splashed onto the comics scene with the self-published relationship memoir Clumsy, which earned praise from cartoonists and readers alike, and was eventually picked up by Top Shelf. Many acclaimed graphic novels followed, establishing Brown as both a hyper-sensitive chronicler of bittersweet romance (Unlikely, Any Easy Intimacy) and a deadpan master of absurdist humor (Incredible Change-Bots, Sulk, I Am Going to Be Small).

Additional projects include: directing a music video for Death Cab for Cutie; the autobiographical collections Little Things, Funny Misshapen Body, and Undeleted Scenes; and the observational books Cat Getting Out of a Bag and Cats Are Weird. His work will be featured in the January 2011 exhibition at Chicago's Museum of Contemporary Art, and he occasionally teaches comics at the School of The Art Institute. The prolific Mr. Brown lives and works in Chicago.
