    That second panel looks very Kris Straub to me. I approve.

    It's stuff like this that makes me wonder why people were so against the Matrix. I'm absolutely certain that people would pay a monthly fee to be apart of it.

    Given a choice between the real world, even now, and the matrix, I for one would gladly submit to our new robot overlords.

    Very strange placement of the word bubbles in the third panel. At first it felt like Old Gabe was the one now arguing against his own suggestion from the second panel.

    I thought the same thing on the 3rd panel. Otherwise, a fantastic comic.

    I feel like I'm going to be exclaiming "With no haptics? And no corticals?" in incredulous amazement a lot in response to random mundane suggestions people make now.

    You know I've been watching OSW review videos they basically do reviews of wrestling pay per views. They did one of one of the more recent shows.

    It had Bret Hart. And Kevin Nash. And Holy Fucking Shit. I hadn't seen much wrestling since 2001.

    It was one of those moments you truly realize how much older you've gotten and how much closer to passing away.

    I want my youth back!

    The problem, @Dhalphir, is that they're assuming an idealized, holodeck-fantasy-playground matrix, but going by the film canon, you're correct; it's explicitly said that people rejected the first iteration that tried to be that, so they created the hyper-realism imperfect world matrix to keep people from second-guessing the reality. For me personally, I'd happily inhabit the ideallic matrix.

    Eh, kind of? I can see why you'd feel that way, but the different characters' word balloons are differently colored, and it's consistent throughout the comic so I had no trouble reading it correctly.

    For me it was the announcement of the 20-year anniversary of Pokemon. I was in junior high when that came out!

    Well Gabe is older in this comic, so first we fuse with machines, and then there is some kind of bio machinery that comes along, possibly we are enslaved by.

    I would like some money because these are artisanal nuggets of wisdom philistine.

    Ell Oh Ell, look at those early adopters in the middle panel there. :D Early adopters always look a bit silly.

    The underlying issue was that the humans weren't given the *choice*.
    Let us know that the matrix is a fake world. Let us know what awaits us out in the real world. But give us the choice of which one to pick.

    I take it old Gabe hasn't checked out the night life on Cissalda. He'd forget all about his VR troubles then.

    In the Matrix, if you're good you get steaks. Often untrue in our inferior universe.

    I can't believe mentioned the hair in this one! Old Gabe has a few strands left on top, but they still take the shape we are familiar with. Young Gabe has his fathers hair, but it is much smaller and subdued. Really nice touches.

    I'm not saying we are going to have an autocratic dystopia, but things keep happening that look like they come from an autocratic dystopia.

    Nah, if you're ruthless and oblivious to the concerns of others, you generally get steaks in both worlds. Proof you say? I'm reverse-searing a late night snack ribeye right now. I'm not even that hungry, it's just because I can, and I don't like my trashcan to be completely empty...

    Wow, look at the color of those neuricles. Gabe.0 really needs to spend a couple of shir's nypharium-cycles in an A-monitored rejuvi-vath!
