After Weekend Long Pot Bender, Image Announces Sci-Fi Buddy Cop Comedy One-Shot

At least that's what we got out of the press release for THAT'S BECAUSE YOU'RE A ROBOT from David Quantick and Shaky Kane.

Source: Actual Press Release Really Quoted Below

The Berkeley, CA offices of Image Comics were absolutely wreaking of pot smoke Monday morning when the comic book publisher, after a weekend of what we assume to be nonstop hardcore medical marijuana smoking, announced THAT'S BECAUSE YOU'RE A ROBOT, in which, according to the official press release, "Two cops patrol a near-future Los Angeles together in an oversized patrol car, and one of them is a robot—but we don’t know which!"

"Welcome to a world where identity is uncertain, the definition of humanity is open to question and there is an evil giant leprechaun who can fly," said David Quantick, writer of this comic as well as HBO's award winning Veep, in an actual quote Image sent to us. "Welcome to That's Because You're a Robot."

According to our sources, on Friday morning, Image Comics is believed to have obtained a medical marijuana recommendation from a local doctor for its "insomnia," after which the company reportedly visited a local medical marijuana dispensary and ordered "one of everything." It promptly returned to its offices with the stash, kicking off a weekend-long party in which the entire company smoked out the entire sixth floor of 2001 Center St., including the company's recently liberated utility closet. Sometime around 3AM on Sunday morning, the stoned company conceived of THAT'S BECAUSE YOU'RE A ROBOT, and on Monday morning, its totally baked public relations department wrote up the press release.

Inside that release, artist Shaky Kane gave more info on the book, saying: "Imagine 'Car 54 Where Are You?' channeled through Philip K Dick's cryogenically preserved brain, broadcast via the first Pye color television set with the color turned up to full retina burn. If you did, you'd get something close to That's Because You're a Robot... but not that close."

At press time, Image was reportedly headed to local cheese shop The Cheese Board with a major case of the munchies and expressed intentions to "eat the shit out of some cheese." THAT'S BECAUSE YOU'RE A ROBOT is due in shops on June 11.
