The Engine #5 cover (Madefire)What do you get if you cross a giant Soviet robot from the 1930s with a bunch of dissidents in a Siberian salt mine and add in a liberal dose of motion book magic? Quite simply, you get The Engine! Launched alongside such big name motion books as Captain Stone and Treatment in the first wave of Madefire titles last year, The Engine has become one of the forgotten titles among the motion book publishers back cataloguewhich is ironic for a book about a gigantic metal mangling machine! Hoping to rescue this robotic Russian relic from the rust heap, we contacted writer Guy Adams and artist Jimmy Broxton to learn more and find out just what a motion book should smell like!

This weekend’s must-read digital comics in the Sunday Digest include an existential edition of Monkeybrain’s Edison Rex, all new The Engine from Madefire and 2000ad‘s genre-defying Trifecta crossover.
