London-based Golden Wolf created this slick animated trailer to promote Horse’s upcoming graphic novel release of VANDROID. The comic, written by Tommy Lee Edwards and Noah Smith, and drawn by Dan McDaid, could be categorized under the currently popular ’80s-retro kitsch genre:

The year is 1984. Washed-up mechanic Chuck Carducci is contacted by an old roommate from his MIT days to team up on a new project using cutting-edge artificial intelligence. With salvaged electronics from NASA’s Jet Propulsion Lab, high-performance van parts, and a plutonium-ion battery dubiously procured by a mysterious financial backer, Chuck builds a robot so human, yet so powerful, it can only be called VANDROID!
