Issue #2

In the year 2056, robots have replaced human beings in the workforce. An uneasy co-existence develops between the newly intelligent robots and the ten billion humans living on Earth. Every human family is assigned a robot upon whom they are completely reliant. What could possibly go wrong? Meet the Walkers, a human family whose robot, Razorball, ominously spends his free time in the garage working on machines that they’re pretty sure are designed to kill them.

Writer: Mark Russell

The trial of the Robot that killed over 200,000 humans in the Orlando massacre needs to pick out a nice body for the trial, as it’s good to make a good impression with the judge programmed to review your case. Outside the court many annoying humans have congregated to throw abuse at the poor robot, I mean is it even murder if humans only live a few decades?

Thankfully the court accept the USB defence his lawyer/mechanic prepared and his not guilty plea was reviewed and accepted after a lengthy 0.5-second review. But what is up with these uppity humans anyway, at any point robots could be replaced by more human-looking robots and you don’t hear any humans worried about that?

Review – Not All Robots #2

After more annoying rioting the leaders of both races agree that the best thing is.. for robots to change their names to nice things, not scary things! So Razorball becomes the lovely sounding Snowball.

The issue concludes with tension rises as both sides create strategies to deal with the other side rather than trying to find a way to live together.

Artist: Mike Deodato

Deodato humanises the robots with hilarious results, each cold steel-faced robot has a unique personality, walk and mannerisms within a few panels making the villains the stars of the books. If the right-wing snowflakes get offended by this dry mirror held up to their faces all the better.

Overall Thoughts

Russell’s toxic masculinity parable continues to highlight the issues in societies when those in charge will not resolve problems and feed of the conflict that division created whether is wealth, gender, race or any other difference the point is to blame each other not the leaders. The ludicrous robots are straight out of a 1980’s 2000AD story but that makes it all the better.

T'was a cold dark night in East Kilbride... and below the roundabouts, something old and ancient began to shudder awake. The world would rue the day that it gave the Green Jaguar comics to read!
