About

Raiden Nakamura is infected by an alien virus that causes him to bond with the mysterious mecha MAYHEM. Together, they are the only thing that stands in the way of the invading Demon Imperial Alliance. But Raiden’s union with MAYHEM comes at a price. Slowly losing his identity, Raiden’s battle for control threatens to destroy not only his sense of self, but also the existence of everything he holds dear.  

SUPER ROBOT MAYHEM is the first collaboration between Metal Made Flesh (Yancy St. Awards Winner Graphic Novel of the year 2017) writer Jeremy Biggs and Manchester based blogger Adrian Mursec. It also features the work of designer Paul Nicholson who worked on the original anime of Ghost in the Shell: Stand Alone Complex for Production I.G, as well as famed artist Javier Bordon.  

Drawing from a wide range of influences including Jekyll and Hyde, Alien, Gundam Wing, 2001: A Space Odyssey, Akira and other science fiction classics, SUPER ROBOT MAYHEM provides a unique spin on the Super Robot genre.

Issue #2 picks up directly after issue #1 and follows the aftermath of Mayhem's discovery, the encroaching DIA scout ships and the fate of Raiden Nakamura...

Jeremy Biggs is an award winning writer and publisher, releasing comics under the banner of Subversive Comics. His work has been featured in Heavy Metal magazine and his work on Metal Made Flesh garnered the best graphic novel of 2017 at the annual Yancy St. awards.     

He was featured as an emerging artist at the Tate Modern's "Undercurrent" show in 2012. 

In a previous life he worked alongside Vini Reilly (Durutti Column), Stephen Mallinder (Cabaret Voltaire) and Billie Ray Martin (S-express), and earned glowing reviews in Mixmag and a feature in Esquire Asia.  

When he's not got headphones on, or his nose in a book, Jeremy likes playing survival horror titles like Resident Evil and Dead Space, although he's more susceptible to jump scares than he's prepared to admit.

Adrian Mursec

With a life long obsession collecting robots and reading comics, this project has become a dream come true. The idea behind Super Robot Mayhem was to create a comic inspired by the works of the grandfather of Super Robots Go Nagai, mixed in with manga like Akira and Ghost in the Shell, and delivered in a western comic format. 

 Super Robot Mayhem has been a labour of love for Adrian as it went through a several revisions over the years. After meeting Jeremy Biggs at Thought Bubble in 2012, and being inspired by his work he decided to ask for advice. The pair ended up teaming up to develop the universe. One year later Super Robot Mayhem is ready for the world. 

 Adrian lives with his wife Kirsty, son Dexter and two gerbils (Goku and Thor) and hopes to one day own a dog.

Risks and challenges

We're a dab hand at Kickstarter now, and since we started we've learned a lot, including having good control over our printing sources, learning how to make tweaks to improve quality, allowing time for any delays in printing, and having backups in case a printer is unable to fulfill on time.

We'll be notifying you at all stages of the Kickstarter how progress is coming along, including an insight into the writing process and showing work in progress pics of the artwork.

Issue One is already fully produced and ready to go. We're confident we can deliver on time and to the high quality our backers demand!
