Everyday Alphabet – Rr – Robot Revolution

with 6 comments

Robot revolution

. . . i considered having the world’s power elite depicted in screens saying “ouch” in their languages of choice from the comfort of their inner sanctums, but the detail required would exceed the capabilities of the resolution used for everyday alphabet – for instance, the caption at the bottom of  each screen saying “Washington,” “Moscow,” etc. And i wouldn’t have been able to include the two light bulb-headed robots, which are the only robots in the thing.

  1. This cartoon is very good, but only had two robots in it. I find that my wanting to see pictures of robots is undiminished. Please include more robots. For instance, you should make a bonus panel that is very wide and has dozens of different types of robots. They could be having a meeting to discuss robot things.

  2. i understand and appreciate your concern about the lack of robots – i, too, felt their lack. however, in the end i felt it suited the je ne sais quoi of “everyday alphabet” that the subject robot revolution did not actually include very many robots. after all, if we have learned anything from automobile assembly plants and the british television series “robot wars,” robots are merely the extensions of some other intelligence that is controlling them remotely.

  3. but, if you’d like, i will work on some entirely gratuitous scenes of robots doing robot things. I am quite found of the light bulb-headed robots in panel 3.

    • i think minimalists would do well after the robot revolution – they would possess a minimum of nagging robot-controlled devices, and are more likely to be OK with being assigned to watching flowers grow over old car bodies.

  5. Perhaps you could have a special “Tribute to our Robot Overlords” that would contain more robots. Because now, more than ever, the world needs cool cartoons of robots.
