Insidors is a poster series that dissects various popular robots

Astro-boy is one of the most iconic characters in illustration history. Gaining fame in his original Manga series – and known as the Mighty Atom in his native Japan – the character even got his own tv series and movie. There's been plenty of design tributes to him over the years and this one has to be one of our favourites.
