Murder on the Robot City Express
Robot City Adventures

author: Paul Collicutt
illustrator: Paul Collicutt

series name:
Robot City Adventures

The hotly-tipped graphic novel series continues with a rip-roaring, action-packed new title, full of retro-comic fun.

As the world-famous Robot City Express train sets off to break the cross-country speed record amid cheers and celebrations, little do the passengers know that murder is on the menu! Can conductor Harrison glean the truth from a host of larger-than-life characters and find the crook before the train reaches its final destination? This playful pastiche of the detective-fiction genre is just the ticket for reluctant readers.

Praise for ROBOT CITY ADVENTURES

"This series promises plenty of rock ’em sock 'em robot fun."
--BOOKLIST

"Full of retro-comic-book-style action and classic movie-serial banter."
