Hmm...I'll take "gratuitous link to some crap on a 'friend' site" for $1000, Alex.

This was WAAAAAAAAYYY more interesting, and a better use of a slot on the main page, than any of those two hundred red links on TotalFark. None of them could come close to the newsworthiness, comedic value, or overall usefullness of a comic about a lovelorn robot.

2003-02-20 10:36:23 AM  
That link gave me AIDS.
2003-02-20 10:39:05 AM  
How appropriate. It is truly something awful.
2003-02-20 10:39:20 AM  
Although I didn't think it physically possible, that link both sucked and blew.
2003-02-20 10:39:33 AM  
THANKS to whoever submitted that piece of crap!

i'm so sad were leaving china today. i'm going to miss hong-kong. i got the special massage. i got a KGB join the revolution beer too. hell yeah. hong-kong is the coolest place i have ever been.
2003-02-20 10:43:01 AM  
i know my last post had nothing to do with the thread but i'm drunk in china. who cares.
2003-02-20 10:43:43 AM  
That Was A Steaming Pile Of Monkey-Mung...The Person Who Made That Comic Should Be Dragged Out Into The Street And Beaten To Death With His Own Shoes...Simply Put-Simply Awful!
2003-02-20 10:44:00 AM  
I, too, know the pain of unrequited robot love.

2003-02-20 10:44:31 AM  
HAL and D.A.R.Y.L. surrender.

"Yeah baby, then I will suck your bolts right out of your rivet points so you can spray your non-drying lubricant all over my rear hinge!"

Ah, nothing like some good Robot pr0n...
2003-02-20 10:48:39 AM  
And those guys give Penny Arcade a hard time?

"My collaborators and I have seized that grail with noth hands and cast it into motion"

How do you cast a grail into motion? I mean, I like mad scientists as much as the next scientist, but this shiat is too much! Comic needs a better story at least.
2003-02-20 10:49:52 AM  
Such pretty pictures for absolutely NO CONTENT.
2003-02-20 10:50:16 AM  
Off topic, but does anyone have an image of that picture of Rosie O'Donnell giving Elmo the finger that they showed on Conan a long time ago? I figured if anyone has it, they would be a farker.
2003-02-20 10:51:27 AM  
great art, not such a great story....but that's okay, the guy's got more than enough potential to make it in the comic business. some of his wispier drawings (closeups on the robot) were just fantastic, though.
2003-02-20 10:52:25 AM  
Hello neighbors!
2003-02-20 10:53:11 AM  
It's like a Chick tract, only worse.
2003-02-20 10:53:22 AM  
Also...Is It Me Or Does It Look That Jack Chick Did The Artwork For This Piece Of C*ap???

Very Weird,Don't You Think???
2003-02-20 10:54:48 AM  
You Live Up To Your Name...You Beat Me By 11 Seconds...Damn!
2003-02-20 10:56:14 AM  
Something Awful sucks.
2003-02-20 10:56:27 AM  
I'm actually somewhat disappointed and surprised that FARK is so far disliking the comic. The folks on the SA forums thought it was the greatest thing ever.
2003-02-20 10:56:31 AM  
I used to like Something Awful... but I've found it quite lacking lately. Hope they get better again, soon.
2003-02-20 10:56:48 AM  
An ethnic stereotype with an Italian accent and a big moustache?

Mamma Mia!

Isn't D.A.R.E a government sponsored thing?
2003-02-20 10:56:51 AM  
I kept waiting for it to get funny, but alas, it was of no use.
2003-02-20 10:57:36 AM  
so boooring. stopped reading at page 2
2003-02-20 10:57:58 AM  
I like the drawing, but the storyline would get your ass heaved the fvck out of Riverdale.
2003-02-20 10:58:45 AM  
Where's Johnny Five when you need him?
2003-02-20 10:59:09 AM  
Ah Cripes!

Sarcasm/satire meter wasn't working
2003-02-20 11:00:20 AM  
I thought it was about late 90s New Jersey Nets African draft pick bust Yinka Dare.
2003-02-20 11:01:25 AM  
and btw Bgrdmnstr, i also really liked hong kong. i'm not drunk though...
2003-02-20 11:01:57 AM  
that sucked
2003-02-20 11:02:25 AM  
Zach You have excellent artwork. I just didn't find the topic all that entertaining. Don't give up though - it's probably just me feeling depressed lately.
2003-02-20 11:02:26 AM  
The "dirty" robot talk was amusing but the rest of the comic was just plain boring.
2003-02-20 11:03:50 AM  
No, the artwork isn't that hot either. It might be excellent by "web comic" standards, but that's not saying much.
2003-02-20 11:06:04 AM  
Rats. I was hoping for some biting "D.A.R.E. to keep your rugrats off drugs" satire.
2003-02-20 11:07:17 AM  
nice art bad story.. not that i wasn't expecting that.
2003-02-20 11:08:03 AM  
I loved the contradiction between the offbeat story and the 'serious' art. Kind of reminds me of the old Calvin & Hobbes comics when he's doing the Spaceman Spiff or sleuth detective stuff. Good job, Zack!

"I'm actually somewhat disappointed and surprised that FARK is so far disliking the comic. The folks on the SA forums thought it was the greatest thing ever."

You could polish a shiny and newly deposited turd and call it artowrk, and the SA guys would like it simply for the fact that it was you who did it. Groupies are cool like that. You really must exploit them for sexual favours one day. =)
2003-02-20 11:08:16 AM  
saw it on tv
bought it on the phone
but when it got home



2003-02-20 11:10:06 AM  
"Hmm...I'll take "gratuitous link to some crap on a 'friend' site" for $1000, Alex."

Boy is THAT a perfect description.
Zach, in case you hadn't noticed, the Something Awful goons will greedily lap up anything you offer them (case in point: the extremely repetitive and predictable Awful Links of the Day). They're not the most objective judges of the quality of your work.

2003-02-20 11:10:37 AM  
It looks like something I'd see in Heavy Metal,without having to pay the five bucks to see it.So Im happy
2003-02-20 11:13:43 AM  
Not a terrible comic. Much better than any of Emily's crap. Too bad she won't get a clue.
2003-02-20 11:14:18 AM  
OK, I read the whole thing, and the killing part gave me some laughs... whatever that says about me.
2003-02-20 11:14:33 AM  
"Not a terrible comic. Much better than any of Emily's crap. Too bad she won't get a clue."

She broke up with Lowtax, right? That's a start.

2003-02-20 11:15:06 AM  
i feel the love in here... brrrrr
2003-02-20 11:15:17 AM  
Best farking robot in love goes berserk comic EVER!
2003-02-20 11:15:41 AM  
She broke up with Lowtax, right? That's a start.

Are you serious about that?
2003-02-20 11:15:57 AM  
I thought it was funny, then I realized I hadn't wiped the sleep from my eyes yet. Turned out to be a pile of steaming camel shiat
