In the future, robots will rule the world—and live in fear of their mysterious, absent creators.

The holiday season is typically when Hollywood roles out the big, epic pictures. Keeping with that tradition, 12 Panel Pitch is proud to present a science-fiction blockbuster written by an honest-to-god scriptwriter Todd Alcott (Antz, etc.) and drawn by cartoonist/illustrator extraordinaire R. Sikoryak (Masterpiece Comics, New Yorker covers, etc). Enjoy!
