Hey, thanks to everyone who stopped by at New York Comic Con, we had a really great time!

(Also, all the robots in this comic are designed with help from my boyfriend Jack Covell, who is a rad artist and has way more of a knack for bots than me! -Molly)

    So polite and helpful! Next time I need a limb amputated I’ll go by the wonderful little fellow in the white plastic chassis.

    “Don’t worry, the procedure is perfectly ‘armless.”

      “Come on, Alison, don’t be such a handful.”

  • Dave Van Domelen

    Shades of the KillBots in Skin Horse. Greetings, human, how may I kill you? I mean, KILL you. Sorry, I have a speech murdering impediment.

    Some one has to make sure the software developers are not talking only using initials and jargon when programming the robots, especially if they are expected to interact with the general public.

  • Joshua Leone

    Pretty sure it’s referring to weapons, calm down!

    • DerAmi

      Pretty sure that’s still somewhat a problem with Allison, as she is basically inherently armed.

    • asdf

      I personally suspect “ARMS” is some kind of acronym. Note the capitalization.

      • kellys

        Pretty sure that’s meant to be the point where the robot’s pre-recorded/synthed greeting script has a space for an appropriate word for the circumstances, delivered at a different volume and/or quality. Think “automated phone menu.”

    C’mon Alison, you can take him. ROBOT FIGHT!

      Damnit that’s what I was going to post.

    I get the feeling a lot of Lisa’s design style is driven by two things: the loss of her leg and the need to weaponize a lot of her equipment into the Paladin suit. I might just be extrapolating, but everything we’ve seen so far has been very limb-y, from her super suit and prosthesis to this construction suit and butler droid.

    I’m also going to hazard a wild guess and say that she lost her leg either in Chicago when Alison saved her or at some point in the line of duty.

  • Firanai

    pity, I was hoping for her to say “you may try but it wont end well…”

    Saw you guys at comic con! I bought the book and read it within the next day; I couldn’t put it down, and now I’m caught up in the web comic. I love it!

  • Dean

    I’m surprised that this place isn’t being picketed. Plenty of people would be unhappy about construction jobs being done by robots.

    • With giant inflatable rats? And a second crowd of picketers picketing the union’s giant inflatable rats for taking their jobs as rent-a-picketers?

  • Jack Lostthenames Warren

    That is the cutest robot I have seen in many a year.

  • Insanenoodlyguy

    okay folks, quick, before the Friday page in all likelihood explains it, your best (or silliest) guess as to what ARMS stands for!

      Armaments! Because I am boring.
