Renegade Robot
« on: October 05, 2021, 08:38:54 AM »
Hi, I've been writing and drawing my own manga/graphic novel for a while now. I've started a Patreon where I will continue to upload chapters as I finish them. My goal is to produce 1 every two weeks. This first chapter is available to view here. All feedback is welcome.

*Link removed*

Synopsis:

Set during a wave of industrial revolution, humans are reliant on robots for everything, and they are treated as nothing more than appliances. It is believed that robots are incapable of expressing emotions, independent thought or freewill. That is until one day, when a lowly Maintenancebot called Bolt decides to rebel against the humans after a traumatic experience awakens his consciousness. After becoming a wanted criminal, Bolt goes on a journey to gather up like-minded robots and dismantle the fabric of human society.

Hello J.J.Watts,

I have to say that I really like these types of stories, because it gives you a lot to work with both in terms of the physical and emotional questions.  Questions of how machines would develop themselves outside of human influence, as humans tend to tailor a lot of our creations towards our convenience more than for just sheer efficiency.

It also allows for a lot of exploration as to what makes humans, human.  We tend to make a lot of machines in shapes or forms that are either similar in shape to things we know or see, like something bi- or quadrupedal, or very simple shapes, like boxes or cubes.  Does making something that looks human and can simulate human responses make us human, or is it something else?  A lot of these interesting questions are very fun to ponder and see people takes on these deep and ideological debates.

I hope you have fun writing your series, and look forward to the results.

Thank you! I am indeed looking forward to exploring all these themes. Chapter 6 will be out soon. In the meantime, I recently made a trailer.
