#247 Watchful GuardianMarch 19, 2021
Last few days have been rough. We could really use a rest.
“Hey ya’ll look like you could use a rest! Ya’ll sleep peacefully under the watchful eyes of our guardian!”
Big Sister says:
Look to the Future
Whether that future holds caring robot nannies (and other occupations) or the promise of a technology long since lost to the planet, this week’s comics explore the hopeful possibilities and grim consequences of progress.
Now Recharging – A story about living in an ordinary world... but as a sentient/sapient robot! Emmie is a sheep-loving android who is bad at math and worried about nonexistence. Designed to learn naturally with no apparent end application, they navigate the ups, downs and questions of life like the adventure it truly is!
O Sarilho – An ancient satellite, thought to be in orbit for over 500 years, crashes into enemy territory. The Kirchhoff brothers are sent on a mission to recover its remains, but they end up finding something else entirely… And the locals have an eye on it too.
