Top Cow/Image released a new comic book trailer for the upcoming series metal company which features robots and humans fighting for survival and supremacy. Zack Kaplan and Guilherme Balbi are two creators you need to keep an eye on, as both have released some amazing sci-fi stories. After talking with Kaplan last week about the series on the AIPT Comics podcast, it’s safe to say we’re in good hands.
If you are unfamiliar with Balbi, check out Alien: the original scenario. He is joined by Marco Lesko on the colors and Troy Peteri on the letters.

So what metal company on?
In an inverted future, evolved robots have resurrected humans for manual labor. When a tribal culture clash erupts, a fearless human fighter and a frustrated, displaced robot will square off in an epically-stakes MMA-style public sports fight to determine once and for all who reigns supreme: man or machine.
metal company is slated for release on May 4. Check out the trailer below.
