When two young siblings excitedly unwrap their final Christmas presents, they discover toy robots unlike anything they have ever seen. And with good reason. What the kids and their parents don’t know is that their quaint suburban home just became the beachhead for these self-aware ‘bots that have begun to explore the outside world. And when one of the ‘bots breaks bad, it’s going to take a Christmas miracle to stop him. In this concluding issue, the bots face off with the living room as their battleground.

Cullen Bunn is an American comics writer, novelist, and short story writer. He grew up in rural North Carolina.

 

He is best known for his work on comic books such as Uncanny X-Men, X-Men: Blue, Magneto and various Deadpool miniseries for Marvel Comics, and his creator-owned series The Damned and The Sixth Gun for Oni Press and Harrow County for Dark Horse Comics, as well as his middle reader horror novel Crooked Hills, and his short story work collection Creeping Stones & Other Stories.

 

“The brilliance of BYTE-SIZED #1 is in its subtlety. BYTE-SIZED #1 is a great holiday genre read that’s reminiscent of classics such as Gremlins, powered in equal parts by strong writing and art.”

– Larry Jorash, Comics Bookcase

“In BYTE-SIZED #1 Cullen Bunn once again showcases his talent for blending genres. This first issue has horror and sci-fi elements, all wrapped up in a Christmas bow.”

– Joe Bones, Graphic Policy

“It’s a charming, family friendly story that’s beautifully drawn with some very cartoony art – it’d make a wonderful animated series, especially as it has a very cinematic feel.”

– Jason, Midlife Gamer Geek

“This is a four issue limited series by AWA Studios. This little comic company consistently puts out fun, interesting stories.”

– Krystal Moore, David Williams, Leo Weekly
