Happy new year! This is the first part of a comic my brother wrote (and I drew). I hope you enjoy this story. The entirety of what you see here was created in the last 3 days, so we worked pretty hard.
This began because of our mutual desire to create a comic by combining our efforts, with the goal of quickly and dirtily making a comic over new year’s (although it looks like it’ll take a bit longer). We started wanting to make a comic with a simple plot involving a robot hero, and one that we could finish in around 10 pages. Dean also wanted the story to have a powerful sense of good and evil in it. Then I had the idea of a robot hero who was good, but was forced to work for the wrong side in some sort of man-versus-society story. Well, rather quickly the story evolved (or perhaps devolved) into the story of six robots working for a rather irreputable seeming deserter, performing the rather irreputable task of stealing food from villagers. Well, it’s got robots, it’s got character, and it’s got a rather complicated moral dilemma. What a great way to start off the new year. I hope to work with Dean to create many more wonderful and interesting comics.
