As you can see in the panel above, there is a robot poster in John Allison’s new webcomic, Bad Machinery, which he says is not about robots.  New comics are integrated into a complicated cybernetic system–one that needs oil and sweat to efficiently mesmerize its readers into a sense of comic reading bliss.
