Robot is an all-color manga compilation compiled and edited by the elite manga artist Range Murata, character designer for Studio Gonzo's Last Exile and Blue Submarine No. 6. Murata's hand-picked contributors come together in a mind blowing experiment of what happens when top manga artists work in the unusual medium of color.
Artist/story listings can be found under more info.
Robot was partially published in English, the first three volumes by Digital Manga Publishing from September 19, 2005 to December 1, 2006, after which the license was taken over by Udon Entertainment, who published volumes 4 and 5 from December 1, 2007 to May 1, 2008, before they too dropped the license. It has been published in its entirety in French by Glénat.
It's hard to rate the whole thing, because it's basically a bunch of one shots dealing with different plots, from different artists, and it's set in different times.
Surely, someone reading this will like a few of them. It's nicely colored, and since it's a joint project the art in it is diverse, as are the characters, and the plots :)
