The Ranxerox wiki last edited by fesak on 05/25/14 06:22PM View full history

Conceived as a bizarre anti-hero, Ranxerox was a mechanical creature made from Xerox photocopier parts. He was created by Italian comic artists, Stefano Tamburini and Tanino Liberatore. He made his debut as "Rank Xerox" in Cannibale magazine in 1978. He then appeared in  Frigidaire magazine in 1980. Later on, he made a bigger debut in Heavy Metal in 1983.  
  
Ranxerox was a birthday present for Lubna from some of her friends. Later, on the same day, some thugs were harassing Lubna and destroyed Ranx. The friends who built Ranx found out, they then repaired him, and set his aggressiveness levels up to the maximum amount. This explains why Ranxerox is always very brutal and destructive.  

He used to be called "Rank Xerox", but his name was changed because of a threatened lawsuit issued by the Xerox company, Rank Xerox

"Ranxerox is a punk, futuristic Frankenstein monster, and with the under-aged Lubna, they are a bizarre Beauty and the Beast. This artist and writer team have turned a dark mirror to the depths of our Id and we see reflected the base part of ourselves that would take what it wants with no compromise, no apology - and woe to the person who would cross us. But it is all done with a black, wry, satirical sense of humor."
