    That ish be impossible to read, yo!

    And while the art may be nice, I can't tell at this scale.

    Pretty disappointed. Will re-evaluate if/when they repost it "actual size".

    I hope they release a larger image. I'm not gonna read it until its bigger. I love Automata too much to waste the first experience squinting my eyes.

    New York, 1927

    1. Jesus H Christ...

    2. So, how do you figure it?

    1. Shit, I'm no detective, but I know a hooker and her John gone bad when I see it. Figure the John wants to play rough or holds out on the cash... Hooker's pissed off, they get into a set-to, things turn violent... He pulls out the Mohaska and BLAM! Then, I dunno, bleeds out from the beating he took? He's cut up pretty bad. Makes me sick, just the idea of making it with one of these things... I mean, how do you even...

    2. You ever see this kinda thing before?

    1. No, heard about it, though. Some kinda new fetish. Lotta sickos out there. They even got a name for it. They call it "Auto-Erotic"

    I can read the text just fine, but I'd much rather to see a larger version so I can actually make out the artwork lines.

    I think there are pink and cyan arrows (colors?) to indicate the speakers, but I can't see them.

    Good comic though and I want more. Rosie, what happened?

    sorry, work has put me in a pissy ass mood

    and i saw new comic and was like, "yeah, i get to laugh"

    and then it's illegible, no laughs.

    I would say it's most likely a restriction from the site itself, and it's getting re-sized smaller. but, they post bigger than the typical 3-panels all the time, and this doesn't happen.

    Luckily, there was also a Futurama about robot mortality.

    Except with less sexing.

    I don't think this one was much of a laughs comic, anyway. Instead, it does what Automata does, and it does it in its way.

    I wish GnT and Robert would do the comic book thing. I would love to see monthly issues of Cardboard Tube, Lookouts, Automata, Jim Darkmagic, etc.

    Created by different artists and writers. Published by Arcadian Comics.

    Wouldn't be a guest comic without a torrent of complaining.

    Part 1 reminds me of the start of the second Ghost in the Shell movie.
