Issue #4

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 Walters, a human family whose robot, Razorball,

ominously spends his free time in the garage working on machines which they’re pretty sure are designed to kill them in this sci-fi satire from Mark Russell (The Flintstones, Second Coming) and Mike Deodato Jr. (The Amazing Spider-Man, The Resistance).

Writer: Mark Russell

After the rise of the mandroids last issue, the scene is set for a clash between humans and robots while the council and the mandroids move on. The factory owner congratulates all the robots for the amazing work in getting their replacements ready and then sacks them all. Opinion turns against them as the world turn against the robots as work-shy and not wanting anything. In the Walter household though Cheryl tries to talk to Snowball to see if she can stop the violence but is it too late as both humans and robots as they clash?

The tension Russell has been building boils to the surface in this issue showing how progress leaves groups behind and creates unrest. Phillipe’s rousing speak about revolution shows such a careful hand balancing protests with change.

Artist: Mike Deodato

There’s so much to enjoy with Deodato’s artwork this issue, the clashes and fights give each character depth, no matter how fleeting they are shown. The final panels though show that in the end, the ruling class don’t care about the differences between human and robot we’re all discarded in the end.

Overall Thoughts

This series is a painful read as we each see parts of our life or personality reflected in the humans and robots, but we never take the time to try to fix the underlying problems with an elite 1% of society. By using the comics medium though perhaps (hopefully) we’ll each take some time to stop blaming and work together for a better society?

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!
