The novel by Tanith Lee on which this comic is based was a very interesting story. This full-color comic book is an adaptation of that novel. While it was interesting to see Robbins interpretation of the novel, I have to say that the novel is better. Too much detail and depth had to be sacrificed in this comic book version of the story. Also, I think Robbins version of Silver just doesn't do justice to Lee's description of the robot. Maybe it is the limitations of the comic book format, but Silver just looks boring compared to how Tanith Lee describes him in her novel.
There are a few nude scenes in the comic book, but nothing too shocking just a few bare breasts.
