TB May 1, 2018 at 2:43 pm 9 months ago Never have I more wished for a “like” button. Jude May 1, 2018 at 7:04 pm 9 months ago Or maybe a LOVE button (for the comment not the person since I don’t know him). 😀 Frith Ra May 1, 2018 at 1:23 am 9 months ago If my right arm did that I don’t think i’d Be half as complacent as Mauricio seems to be. Efogoto May 1, 2018 at 1:56 am 9 months ago I suspect that whatever Mauricio’s state of mind is, “complacent” isn’t it. Maybe “dumbfounded” gets closer. Rex Vivat May 1, 2018 at 3:44 am 9 months ago Shocked, even. Gristle McNerd May 1, 2018 at 5:42 am 9 months ago “constant internal screaming”, I’d say. Has been for a while, so this lovely little bit of body horror barely registers. Efogoto May 1, 2018 at 1:52 pm 9 months ago “body horror” Much more succinct and accurate than the phrases I was coming up with. The closest I got was “Aaaaaaaaaaaaaaahhhhhhhhhhhhhh!” repeated 14 times. Rana May 1, 2018 at 9:46 pm 9 months ago I wouldn’t be surprised if Jabby was pumping Mauricio full of calming hormones by this point. Docard May 1, 2018 at 4:43 am 9 months ago The moment when you realize that you’re not who you think you are. And, GRUDS! Joyce Melton May 1, 2018 at 7:02 am 9 months ago Killer Robots Made out of Sandwiches is just the opening act in this concert. Kaidah May 1, 2018 at 8:53 am 9 months ago I think both Mauricio and I made the same face when his arm did that. Not sure I’d take it quite so calmly though… Efogoto May 1, 2018 at 1:43 pm 9 months ago You just haven’t been destroyed and reconstituted when destroying a nascent black hole before. Or, at least, I assume you haven’t. Pretty sure your bar for what you’d take calmly would be raised by that. Marco May 1, 2018 at 9:05 am 9 months ago Hmm, legged robot in first panel, then tracked robot destroyed by rocket? Herandar May 1, 2018 at 10:30 am 9 months ago The first robot was not laser resistant. The tracked robot was. Herandar May 1, 2018 at 10:30 am 9 months ago Legs are what make us vulnerable to lasers, of course. TB May 1, 2018 at 2:46 pm 9 months ago I hope they’re paying attention to how the robots are getting in there. Marco May 1, 2018 at 9:08 am 9 months ago What’s next? 🙂 Eric A. Meyer May 1, 2018 at 11:42 am 9 months ago The first killer robot looks… strangely familiar. Efogoto May 1, 2018 at 1:48 pm 9 months ago QwahnWho? TB May 1, 2018 at 2:44 pm 9 months ago At least it was his right arm that released the missile. It could have been a lot worse, and he would need new pants. Strain Of Thought May 1, 2018 at 5:43 pm 9 months ago So what’s at the top of this pit? Because at first everyone seemed to act like it was open, but I find it hard to believe Jabby couldn’t fly out or climb out somehow. Is the Gounder talking to them over an intercom or just standing at the top of the pit or what? Can Jabby produce autonomous drones or is he required to remain one single coherent unit? Jude May 1, 2018 at 7:24 pm 9 months ago Of course we all know and expect Mauricio to be in a constant state of repulsion and shock over Jabby, along with fresh bursts of indescribable horror at new developments. But it’s Wezzle that amuses me. With his eyes permanently looking like he’s seen things no one else has (even if no one has before), it’s hard to judge his reaction to everything. He seems incredibly calm for someone facing death (as he was when Jabby first took over his ship) and we can only see what goes on in his mind by his comments “Don’t suppose part of that is made out of a sandwich?” When facing death, it’s important not to die on an empty stomach! Chris, your webcomics deserves to be better known! I read a few others and often their comment range past 100 or even 200. I wish more knew about Spacetrawler. I have no idea what you think about Hiveworks but a lot if the comics come from or link to Hiveworks. Not sure how it works as I haven’t bothered checking it out. I just read some of the better ones there. Gregg Eshelman May 1, 2018 at 9:44 pm 9 months ago Inspector Gadget looks on in awe… Peter Rogan May 1, 2018 at 11:01 pm 9 months ago I wish Panel 5 did not provide the visual that last Friday’s “Penny Arcade” only described. Without, you know, the restoration. The horrors just keep on coming. Almost enough to make me forget to wonder where the damned robots are coming in. Right now, though, I’m busy trying not to think of the word ‘urethra.’ Oog. Leave a Reply Cancel reply Your email address will not be published.
