Titanzer is a giant robot action-comedy webcomic by Kevin Wilson. The story starts with Johnny Yamamoto, former savior of the world, finding out he has a negative balance on his bank account. This happens right as he watches a parking officer slap a handful of tickets on his giant robot. It goes up and down and all around from there.
This comic was started in May 2011, is drawn in black and white, and has formerly been updated on Tuesdays and Thursdays. It was formerly in hiatus as the author wants to possibly reboot the whole thing. Currently, the story has been changed with no resemblance to the original plot at all.
