Katharine M – Meet Boris—Graphic novel series introduces readers to the Robot of Leisure
Forget everything you know about robots. Meet Boris—the resident robot of leisure assigned to the Zükünfthaus model home. One event is about to challenge everything he’s been programmed to believe.
The Robot of Leisure graphic novel series tells a gentle tale of one robot’s pursuit of happiness and purpose. This relic of an unrealized future must now adjust to his newfound freedom. Through this six-part dialogue/narration-free series, Boris confronts and conquers obsolescence, solitude, and his own programming. With no one to serve, Boris embarks on his own life of leisure…but will he be content with mere frivolity?
In the tradition of Monsieur Hulot and Mr. Bean, Boris wordlessly experiences life and finds delight in even the most mundane tasks. Readers of all ages will appreciate Boris’s innocence and curiosity about the things around him.
Robot of Leisure #1 and #2 are currently available in print via Amazon and the ebooks are available via Amazon, Smashwords, and other popular ebook stores.
The third installment, Boris Gets a Visitor to be released in Spring 2011.
