I am pretty sure this is RanXerox by Stefano Tamburini and Tanino Liberatore. RanXerox is an android built from photocopier spare parts (hence the name, and hence a lawsuit with Xerox that lead to a renaming of the character) who is protector and lover of the underage Lubna. Rather distasteful by todays standards, visually somewhat impressive, and definitely NSFW.


(Wikipedia claims fair use for use of the image, so do I).

    Thanks! I cannot remember details but I had a cool badge with his face and lost it. (And I was listening to Frank Zappa, whose "The Man from Utopia now suddenly gets another dimension for me) The comics I was reading in the early '80s were quite alternative - like The Fabulous Furry Freak Brothers and MAD magazine. When I was in France, I was reading Métal Hurlant and L'echo des savanes which also contained a lot of Gilbert Shelton and was very NSFW.

    This is a comic about a robot who has graphic sex with a 12 year old and smashes peoples skulls to pulp in hyperrealistic detail. That is yet another level of NSFW than Fritz the Cat, and that is saying something. Jul 6, 2023 at 12:33

    Well, it is also a work of art with some pop-cultural significance (Zappa record covers etc). The past does not improve if you pretend it's not there, so let's just warn people and otherwise let the question stand. Jul 6, 2023 at 12:35
