Robot comic for $19,000?


Robots didn’t just appear from the Sony labs in the last few years in the form of Asimo and Aibo. Oh no, they’ve been around for years – well in people’s imaginations that is.

Over at Bayraider, an early example has been spotted. From 1935, to be precise, in the form of a comic by famous publisher DC Thompson. Not sure if the subject matter would be suitable for today’s market, but if you are a collector of robotic memorabilia, you can pick this up for the rather inflated price of $19,000.
