Holy-Crap just WOWZA volume 4 is much more darker and a little bit more gorier to me from the first three volumes. I absolutely love, love, love, love this volume so much more and I dare say it is my favorite volume by far! I can not express in words on how much I totally and utterly love this volume much more without getting into any details about it or getting to spoiler about it as well. But I will share a little bit about this fantastic graphic novel. Volume 4 starts right were volume 3 left off at in the beginning chapters Princess Robot finally gives birth to her child, while Price Robot is missing. He is actually gone AWOL while he is malfunctioning from his injures. I won't say how he got his injures you have to read volume 3 too find out yourself and I also won't say where he went to after he got injured because that is spoiler. You just have too read this amazing graphic novel and find out believe me you are going to love this graphic novel. But in Prince Robot kingdom he has gone missing and is presume dead among his people, but his sassy wife Princess Robot knows he is still alive and she doesn't give a crap what everybody's else thinks! While Prince Robot is gone AWOL Marko and Alana are trying to live a normal life with there family in hiding and they both of them are in disguise of course. But of course Marko and Alana are have some issues and problems within there relationship. I will say without getting too spoiler about it, I really didn't like how Alana was acting in this volume. I actually wanted too kick her in the ass for letting her friends get her high with strong and addicting drugs. I so didn't like her so call friend she was working with giving her those terrible addicting drugs! Ugh but alas the stress of hiding her family and being in disguise to hide her identity took it's toll on Alana and it stress her out too the maximum that she started to take the drugs. Now things starts going down real quick around the middle chapters like things starts getting way crazy real quick. That I can't tell you or express to you how everything went totally insane for both Marko, Alana and Prince Robot families. But I will tell you the ending in this volume was pure epic that I can not wait and read on what happens in the next volumes. I soo didn't see that ending coming like that, I just know volume 5 is going too be full of pure epicness! All and all I thoroughly love and enjoy this volume so much I can't wait to read the next volumes in the new year 2018!

Brian K. Vaughan (Writer)

Born in Cleveland in 1976, Brian K. Vaughan is the Eisner, Harvey, and Shuster Award-winning writer and co-creator of the critically acclaimed comics series Y: The Last Man, Runaways, and Ex Machina (picked as one of the ten best works of fiction of 2005 by Entertainment Weekly).

Recently named "Writer of the Year" by Wizard Magazine, and one of the “top ten comic writers of all time” by Comic Book Resources, Vaughan’s work has been featured and/or reviewed in countless mainstream media outlets, including The New York Times, MTV, National Public Radio, and feminist magazine Bust, which photographed him for their “Men We Love” issue (don’t ask).

As an undergraduate film student at New York University, Vaughan got his big break as part of Marvel’s Stanhattan Project, a workshop for aspiring comic book writers. In the ten years since, he has written nearly all of the major DC and Marvel characters, everyone from Batman to the X-Men.

In September of 2006, Vertigo released Vaughan’s first original graphic novel, Pride of Baghdad, lavishly illustrated by artist Niko Henrichon. Inspired by an unbelievable true story of four lions who escaped the Baghdad Zoo during Operation Iraqi Freedom, Pride is equal parts anthropomorphic adventure and Animal Farm-like parable about the ongoing conflict in Iraq, and was described as "the best novel so far" about the war by the UK's Telegraph.

Along with his creator-owned work, Vaughan is currently writing The Escapists, a Dark Horse miniseries inspired by Michael Chabon’s Pulitzer Prize-winning novel The Amazing Adventures of Kavalier & Clay, as well as a new Doctor Strange limited series for Marvel with artist Marcos Martin.

This summer, the new WGA member/CAA client transplanted his poor playwright wife to Los Angeles, where Vaughan is currently working on the screenplay adaptations of Y and Ex Machina for New Line Cinema, as well as other new creations in film and television.

His home on the web is, and he’s become the last aging hipster to get a MySpace page:
