Because things weren't ridiculous enough already... that GIRL must be a GENIUS to be able to call in references backup like that.

Now you’re talking. Giant fighting robots are GO.

Incidentally, if you should ever decide to jump genres, I think your style/look would be perfect for a high tech, sci fi space opera!

I've got half a dozen unpublished "high tech space opera" novels I'll sell you for the right price... actually scratch that I can't even recall where I put the damn things. No loss, they're all blatant Gundam: Stardust Memory/Robert Heinlein mash-ups.

But they were what prompted me to start making webcomics, that they were the alcohol-fueled delusions of my main character. (Vice the author's delusions.)

My own old space opera prose fiction works, on the other hand, were blatant Star Trek ripoffs.

One of the characters there was a Mary Sue-ish no-nonsense action girl called Selene Luna.
And yes, that is indeed were I recycled Wildebees' first name from. (She is a bit cobbled together out of several earlier character ideas, Frankenstein's monster-style.)

Hmmm. Drugs, illusions, or actually real? If those are actually real one may wonder why the Pentagon isn't bragging about having stuff like that and offering tuned-down versions of it on the world arms market.

ToyCo's giant defense toys are actually real in my own comic at least.

Also, doesn't Maerc cooperate with the US military? Perhaps, besides the VR stuff, this is another one of the technologies that he is after?

ProfEtheric're unleashing freaking armored suits / honest to goodness ROBOTS on the streets of Autumn Bay?

A few thoughts on this matter:

1) How the HELL do certain parties (the ARTEMIS mandate, for instance) cover this one up?

2) What happens if they can't?

3) This is so going in Stephen's blog.


5) I hereby nominate this song for soundtrack / playlist purposes.

I assure you the responsible parties will be called out onto the carpet.

And it's totally OK, this isn't an unauthorized weapons demonstration, nosir, these are dolls. Haven't you ever been to F. A. O. Schwarz?

Bad-ass robot with a hilarious face always reminds me of Mega Man characters ^^ (I think it's called Rockman in US)

Might have to go with those arm-guns in subsequent versions of these robots!
