I am

This is Day 3 of ROBOT WEEK,
and I bring you another Robotic adventure.

Today's tale is entitled "THE CRIME MACHINE",
and it originally was published in American Comic Group's ADVENTURES INTO THE UNKOWN #58, August 1954.
The artist is Robert Q. Sale, who spent the main part of his comics career drawing for Atlas / Marvel comics during the 1950's.
During that time at Marvel (between 1952 and 1957 when he left comics for advertising) Sale did only one story for another company,
and this is that story.

It is a story as old as the hills,
the story of a giant ROBOT who runs amuck and kills so many people your head will spin.
But don't blame him. He was only doing what he was told, of course.

- Digitally Restored Comic Art -




" 'Twas beauty killed the beast."

Er, wait...that's another story.

Now, if you haven't already seen it, I have another juicy ROBOT nugget for you.
Here's a hint...

That there is a super swell ROBOT painting by artist

and over at my other comics blog,

is a classic Corben ROBOT story.
I invite you to click up there somewhere and go check it out.
You won't regret it.


Well, that's enough until tomorrow, when we meet here again for DAY 4 of

I'll leave you with this one thought...


  1. Big Fan of all ACG's "3-D" comics from that 2-year time frame when they were trying to win back readers after the whole Kefauver kerfuffle.

    1. Yeah, I kinda dig the 3D effort too. It is an effect that is still utilized today in comics, though not to the extent that ACG did it here(virtually every panel).Sometimes it is effective.
