Some sex positive stories from some of today's top indie talent (Fiona Staples and Faith Erin Hicks to name a couple of them) featuring androids, robots, cyborgs and A.I. Yeah, it's more than a little weird in some cases. The stories are LGBTQ+ as well.

*I received an ecopy of this book via Edelweiss. This has not influenced my review.*

So it turns out that despite not usually being a big fan of regular anthologies, I am a fan of comic anthologies, and this one was a lot of fun! I didn't love every single story, but I did enjoy many of them, and altogether as a whole I really liked this.

There was a wonderful assortment of stories---no two felt the same, which is really cool considering they were all based around the pretty narrow
I received an ARC copy of this book from NetGalley

I had previously read the My Monster Boyfriend anthology from the same publisher, so I was definitely excited to check this out and I absolutely loved it! If you have read that anthology then this one is pretty much the same general concept, except with robots and androids instead of 'monster' creatures. There is a good mix of different kinds of relationships and characters and art styles so I definitely think there will be something for everyone
Not giving a star rating bc I feel really mixed on this one - I don't wanna be mean but a lot of it was a normie, cis, conventional-beauty-standards yawnfest. Why are you even writing about robot-fucking when it's obvious that you don't even really like robots! Get off my lawn and go make art about sex dolls or something instead!!

That said, there were definitely a few 5-star gems that turned up the volume on the trans and non-human robot themes, so I would recommend checking this out on the

Yup. That was a lot of robot sex.

3/5 stars

Thank you to Edelweiss and the publisher for providing me with an early copy in exchange for an honest review

Honestly, this was so fun! It was literally about sex machines. Every story had at least one machine having sex.

There was a good amount of diversity as well, different gender pairings and such. There were a few that were absolutely bizarre (see: women has sex with sentient worship statue), but some were sweet. My favourite was Remote Connection.

A lot deeper than I anticipated (is that a pun??), and some really great art.
Smut Peddler continues to delight with another quality sexy comic anthology. This time it is the rise of the machines is at hands, though many here aren't quivering with the fear of annihilation.

The anthology brings together the expected broad spectrum of characters, organic and otherwise, with diversity covering more than sexual and gender identities. There is a little bit of something for everyone and it is an enjoy collection to explore even if you're confident in your preferences.

Well, this is probably the best Smut Peddler I've read so far. I like almost every stories in this collection, which is something extremely rare for me.

Let's get down to business. One by one, a short commentary on the sixteen stories that make up this collection.

Vanilla Game by Fiona Staples:
I'm not into RPGs but I quite enjoy the story. The Champion of Thunderwood has to save Sir Henry from a green creature. But, maybe, the green monster is way more interesting than him. I like the way the

I received an ARC via Edelweiss.

This was a fun NSFW comic anthology with stories based on them of sex with robots, AIs, androids and via virtual reality that's inclusive of a broad range of genders and sexualities (as much as that makes sense for robots!) I can't say I have much interest in the concept of sex with robots itself, but it did allow for some interesting settings and sexual exploration, and I liked the range of art and tone between the stories. Recommended for fans of erotic comics,

I'm really glad that these books exist, and like all Iron Circus anthologies, they're crammed full of great writers and artists doing great work. But widely-marketed porn, even when it's super high-quality, kind of fundamentally loses out on the ability to be bizarre and fucked-up and specific. For me, that specificity is what makes porn interesting, and lacking it the best of these stories—like Blue Delliquanti's celebration of polyamory or Savanna Ganucheau's fable of the triumph of love—are ...more

I'm a HUGE fan of Iron Circus comics and am always excited to get a new copy of something they've produced. This anthology is fun and extremely sexy! (I mean... it's sex. Lots of sex. With technology!) It's also pretty inspiring, if you're into a diverse spectrum of sci-fi worlds and robot/AI tech, and how they can exist, manifest, and be experienced.

Did I accidentally read it all in one go? Yes. And you can too!

An interesting graphic novel anthology with erotic stories about robots, cyborgs, androids, and artificial intelligence. The artwork in each story is superb, with short stories that are both erotic and clever. By that I mean that it isn't just about the erotica, the stories are actually interesting with engaging characters and I wished some of them had been longer.

Smut Peddler does it again! This volume focuses on robot sex, which was a pretty wild ride, lots of different interpretations of the theme. As with all Smut Peddlers, this one continues with the trend in diversity, offering up a wide range of bodies and and sexuality.
My fav story was definitely ‘Vanilla Game’

This collection of short stories was amazing. They were all very different and very engaging. I loved the art style in all of them and they never lingered too long. There was only one story that I wasn't fond of overall.

This title doesn't lie - it's all about sex and all involving machines. I couldn't put it down. There was lots of diversity in this book including male/male and female/female relationships (using the term relationship loosely since not all encounters were "relationships".

has some really nice art and good writing. Lost points because there's no fat main characters. There's a few disabled characters and some older characters which is good to see. Gender is played with since the theme is AI/robots/androids/etc. but afaik there were no explicitly trans human characters.

I will try to come back and do a more thorough review, but suffice to say, barring a couple stand-outs, this ain't it.

What an incredible looking anthology, really beautiful artwork. Definitely the best collection of sci-fi erotic short stories I've ever read.

Super amazing anthology, great stories. My only :( is that I would have liked to see more diversity in body size and shapes, not just thin and muscular bodies.

Weirdly, the robotic part took me out of the sexiness sometimes.

This is the first time I have read an erotic anthology that’s a graphic novel at the same time. It was a really weird experience. I don’t think it’s the graphicness of the sex scenes that bothers me. It’s the theme of sex between humans, robots and artificial intelligence that surprised me. Overall, it was a quick read and nothing too spectacular.
