Thanks for reading and commenting! There is something really compelling about this comic. Heartfelt and funny. I especially see the emotion (ironically) in the robot when he is looking at wonder in the panel with the dripping beaker. He is so hopeful/excited. There are only 2 things you can expect out of life. Death, and Science. I think that’s how that goes… Absolutely amazing comic, that ending is so perfect. I can’t put my finger on what makes it so compelling, and that’s REALLY intriguing to me. I think the execution of the robot being subjected to death is very novel and, in conjunction with your art style, makes for an interesting take on our habit of imbuing robots with “humanity”. Really sparked my thinking about the human condition.. Thank you so much for writing. It isn’t even a matter of cheating Death with artificial life either. It’s just that Death, like Nature, finds a way! This is kinda like how the Far Side would have been if each cartoon was spread over multiple panels, and that means it is awesome! I really quite like this. The dreadful irony appeals to me. I guess it’s kind of a toss up between immortality and humanity. I dunno, I can’t really say why I like this so much. It’s just… neat. i’m reading backwards from the end, so you’ll understand when i say: again, awesome. This is a great use of visual language! I love how event the word balloons use visual language to communicate. Very effective and universal. You have a new follower in me. Thanks! Perfect communication with only symbols and pictures. No words but you knew exactly what was happening. Great comic. honestly didnt care for the comic at first but about halfway through i realized it was awesome. Really well done mang. huh. Looks like the scud heartbreaker symbol in the last panel. Agreed, this one has a lot of heart. Also the first web comic i’ve ever commented on! Best Dave. Why thanks for making my comic the first! And thank you for the kind words! Nice job! As I peruse your site, I see you aren’t just a one trick pony, which I really appreciate. Normally, when I StumbleUpon©®™℗ a web comic, I glance, pretend to chuckle, then move on. Yours is one of the very few that I take the time to archive-dive. Keep on keepin’ on, and may you always ‘Fuckabout’ successfully! this is so fantastically wonderful! we’ve all had days where we want to climb to the bottom of a garbage feeling like we have no heart. i’m glad to see even robots understand this. <3 ^|^ I give this one – TWO THUMBS UP! b d definitely didn’t see the ending coming haha Love it! There is a similar-ish animated sequence in the most recently released Harry Potter movie that has to do with cheating death, so to speak. Both your sequence and the movie’s are great! Wow. It took me like. 4 reads to realize that Death was the Scientist who gave him the heart. You really get a feel for everything in this comic. I’m a huge fan of your work. I have this website bookmarked. This is also my first comment on any comic. Keep up the good work. Seriously, this is one of the most wonderful web comics I have ever seen. Telling a heartwarming, funny story like this without using a single word is artistically brilliant! That is super nice of you to say! Thank you so much for reading! Directed by M. Night Shyamalan! It tickled my cheeks pink. Wonderfully crafted story with excellent pacing that is chock full of emotive gestures enhanced by the ideographic language. The simplistic drawing style brings a light-heartedness to otherwise, a rather serious topic about robot’s lack of love capability and near immortality. Thanks so much for the kind response! I very much appreciate it and I’m so glad you enjoy the stories! Leave a Reply Cancel reply You must be logged in to post a comment.
