Electropolis is part of the tri-cities of Dean Motter's Mister X universe (Radiant City, Electropolis, Terminal City).

Ships from and sold by Chuck's Comics. Only 2 left in stock (more on the way). Electropolis is part of the tri-cities of Dean Motter's Mister X universe (Radiant City, Electropolis, Terminal City). The recent Darkhorse Mister X trilogy features a cameo by Menlo Park and Mister X returns the favor in this collection. Here's some feedback: 1. Dean Motter's art is solid and consistent with his recent Mister X collections. 2. The environment is reminiscent of Radiant City as expected.

Menlo Park is a reprogrammed janitor robot working as a private eye on the neon streets of Electra City, a town designed to generate and conduct massive amounts of electricity. Sixteen years after the apparent suicide of his human partner atop the world's tallest tower, a blond femme fatale gives Menlo some new information about the cause of death. As Menlo and his assistant, Anesta, reopen the case, their journey takes them from Electra's high society to its dark underbelly.

Electropolis is part of the tri-cities of Dean Motter's Mister X universe (Radiant City, Electropolis, Terminal City). The recent Darkhorse Mister X trilogy features a cameo by Menlo Park and Mister X returns the favor in this collection. Here's some feedback:
1. Dean Motter's art is solid and consistent with his recent Mister X collections.
2. The environment is reminiscent of Radiant City as expected.
3. Menlo Park is an enjoyable lead character and his partner Anesta is the perfect compliment.
4. The story is solid and flows with the Mister X stories.

This collection is a must have for a Mister X/Dean Motter completist.

The art is really great. This is the beginning of Dean Motter drawing comic books and a prelude to his current style in Mister X.

The story on the other hand is very weak and confusing. The characters are pretty bland with the "mystery" being pretty thin and pointless. The ending feels like a cheat not a clever twist. And all the puns in names gets old very quickly.

If you are a fan of Dean Motter's art, pick this up. It's fun just to flip thru and look at. Don't waste your time on the story.

Dean Motter is something of an indie saint in comic book circles. I have enjoyed Terminal City and his most recent work on Mr. X: Eviction. His design work is very influential, and his retro-futuristic ideas are pure geek gold. But I found this rambling, exposition-heavy graphic novel to be a chore to get through. Your mileage may vary pursuant to your tolerance for, among other things, a robotic protagonist who sputters and whirrs quite a bit when he speaks (a la this review's title).

If you prefer punny P.I.s compared to the more laconic and tough dialogue of their hard-boiled kin, you've got a head start. Giving everyone clever names, like Tess LaCoyle, sounds good, but grew tiresome for me. Nods to other science fiction and mysteries -- including Motter's own -- didn't help enough. The plot was rambling, largely incoherent, and ultimately silly, despite typically solid layouts from Motter.

Electropolis lacked the spark (sorry) to keep me interested.
