I remember the days when someone with an IMDB page expressing interest in comic books was seen as some kind of validation of comics in the larger cultural fabric. Now it’s just…look, I’m not going to accept the Black Eyed Peas into the tribe, sorry. I gotta feeling about WIZARDS & ROBOTS, a one-shot to be written by BEP’s will.i.am and Brian David Johnson, futurist for chipmaker Intel, with art by Adam Archer. We’re told that “WIZARDS & ROBOTS takes readers on a vivid, evocative journey through thrilling new worlds. Over WIZARDS & ROBOTS’ 48 pages, readers will travel untold distances to experience the tale of an unthinkably massive battle.”
In a surprise twist, the battle is to escape from a Forever 21 where the Black Eyed Peas are playing over the PA.
