Tom Noir Comments: America’s Explosive Tomorrow – Where men are men! Except when those men are also cars. And sometimes the car men cover their crotches with hubcaps, cause that’s what car men like, OKAY? What are YOU looking at, buster?? Does this cheese grater belt make by hips look big? Dammit.

    Baen Books called, and their copyright lawyers are hopping mad! They’re shouting about “blatant artwork plagiarism,” quoting… oh, about 50-60 of their own previous releases.

  5. A.R.Yngve Says:

    Sequels were:
    – WAR-FRIDGE (“Half-human, half refrigerator, he’s gonna make the streets chill out!”)
    – WAR-TV (“Half-human, half 30-inch screen, they fight to keep America’s couch potatoes in their homes!”)

    This is as close a picture as you’ll ever come to my nine-year-old self’s mental landscape. I love it, I love it all! Even if it does bear an upsetting resemblance to Robert Patrick.

    Given military spending, that is probably a $100,000 wrist watch. God knows what the baroque shotgun pistol cost.

    You should see how they ‘re-imagined’ the Scarecrow and the Cowardly Lion.

  9. A.R.Yngve Says:

    Sadly, Warbot’s career ended when he ran into a scrapyard magnet.

    Cyborg creations are possible. We shall make them fight our wars. What? Well of course we’ll have them used projectile weapons utilizing kinetic energy caused by chemical reactions. And we’ll leave them with a humanoid face, but because of course sometimes you just want to smash a robots face in.

    I believe that the wozmit immediately behind Mr. Warbot is supposed to be some sort of identity disc cum computer chip but looks far more like a pair of credit cards.

    I’m thinking Ms. Huerta had a thing for rainbows. Savvy?

  13. Tat Wood Says:

    He wouldn’t last five minutes against Matilda or Sir Killalot.

  14. B. Chiclitz Says:

    Weird pecs tag?

  15. fred Says:

    Why are there still freeways in America’s tomorrow? If they have mastered cyborg tech then flying cars should be a given.

  16. Cornelius Says:

    Only one thing he fears… The local council salting the roads causing his underside to corrode.

  17. Tor Mented Says:

    So, warbots did ye find this cover?

  18. Tat Wood Says:

    Be vewwy quiet, I’m hunting warbots.

  19. Bruce A Munro Says:

    Sequel to Warbots #9: Colons and Courage.

    Either he’s a transformer stuck mid-change or he’s piling up the corpses of sports cars under his feet (wheels? Treads?) in a spirited defense of the highway.

  20. GSS ex-noob Says:

    This cover is very informative.

    It informs me that I am not interested in this book.

  21. Bruce A Munro Says:

    “A man with that big a hubcap is compensating for something.”

    Looking at the closeup picture, that’s a pretty wildly ornamented stock on his right hand gun: did he steal it from a Robo-Grand Duke of Austria or something?

    G. Harry Stine, when he wasn’t doing the rocketry thing or impersonating Lee Correy. 😉

    @Hammy: looks to me like “when he needed some money, fast”.
