Livio Ramondelli is perhaps best known for his writing on IDW’s Transformers series, but in 2019 he came up with a sentient robot story of his own: The Kill Lock. Also published by IDW, the first run became a cult hit and Ramondelli is now proud to announce a sequel.
The Kill Lock is what binds four criminal robots together: a soldier, an addict, a murderer, and a child. The lock was set as punishment, and what it does is kill all four if just one of them perishes. The bots were now forced to form an uneasy alliance to stay alive and watch each other’s backs, while searching for a way to shut the Kill Lock down.
The Artisan Wraith picks up where the previous story left off: they managed to achieve their goal, but one of them did FAR better than the others: he now possesses an indestructible body and control over an entire planet. With that much power, he’s an imminent threat to the galaxy, and two of the deadliest assassins in the universe are sent on a mission to eliminate him.
“The central premise of The Artisan Wraith is: If you had both the might and the mind to remake the faults that you see in society, would you improve it or create something worse?” says Ramondelli. “The scope of this series is larger than the first, and will explore not only the future of the prior characters, but also introduce new ones as well as explore the dark origins of their universe.”
The first issue of The Kill Lock: The Artisan Wraith will be out in March of 2022 from IDW.

In the wild west of the Internet, it’s difficult to know what information to trust. Some anecdotes have waffled back and forth between “this is true” and “this is just a myth” — one that comes to mind is the story that Donkey Kong got his name from Shigeru Miyamoto
