Scott McCloud's Zot!, published by Eclipse Comics between 1984 until 1990, was a lighthearted alternative to the darker and more violent comics that dominated the industry during that time. There were a total of 36 issues, with the first ten in color and the remainder in black and white. McCloud credited Astro Boy creator Osamu Tezuka as a major influence on the book, making it one of the first manga-inspired American comic books.

Was this ever completed? I always wanted to see the final.
