Mega funny, mega exciting comic adventures starring your favourite robot brothers
March 2022 Book of the Month
In case you haven’t come across them in the Phoenix Comic (in which case you’re seriously missing out) Alex and Freddy are robot brothers – super strong and sentient – being brought up by their inventor ‘mum’ and dad as close to ordinary kids as possible. They go to school, they argue (a lot) but they’re also agents for secret agency R.A.I.D. which, in Freddy’s words, means they have to ‘fight evil robots and stuff’. This new adventure once brings them up against the evillest robot of them all, Wolfram, who has a personal vendetta against our heroes. There’s as much explosive, kapow action as you could hope for, but also lots of ordinary home life/school stuff which is just as enjoyable and just as gripping. Neill Cameron is a brilliant illustrator and a first-rate writer too, don’t miss this series.

Alex and Freddy are just like any other brothers. They squabble and drive their parents mad. BUT... they’re also the most powerful robots on earth!
However, when a half-destroyed robot appears, hellbent on revenge, Alex and Freddy are lured into a deadly trap. One that may also threaten their beloved mum . . .
Alex Rider meets Ready Player One in these high octane adventures with heart and humour – the third book in the series is bigger and bolder than ever!

I could tell you more, but there’s a wonderful little section at the end of the first Mega Robo Bros book, Power Up, where Freddy pretty much sums up all you need to know, in his own unique way! Full review
