Robosexuality – Part 11


Science will have unleashed hell upon the world when they create romantically oblivious artificial intelligences capable of friendzoning each other.

And that's when Ice Man discovered that the coldest and most barren wasteland isn't in Antarctica. :(

Robosexuality – Part 10


Just because robots don’t engage in sexual reproduction, doesn’t mean that they’re completely ignorant about the process.

Talk about a whole new kind of baby boom.

This example of spectator birth trauma has been brought to you by Mega Man #7 (January 2012) by Ian Flynn, Chad Thomas, Patrick Spaziante, and Gary Martin.

The Philosophy of Mega Man


I don’t normally use my blog to plug titles that I’m fond of, but if you have a comic book that deals with the ethics of creating weapons of war for personal gain…

…the moral dilemmas that come with creating sentient artificial intelligences…

…and anti-technology terrorists making bomb threats and discussing the danger of giving robots free will…

…and this comic book is not only aimed at children but also based on a 25-year-old video game, then you know you have something special and worth reading.

Seriously, go out and pick up a copy of the new Mega Man series by Archie Comic Publications. It’s the first title I’ve seen in a long time where the writer is as just as much of a fan of the characters as the readers are.

Robosexuality – Part 9


When you start using blanket terms to refer to your and your colleagues’ biological offspring and robotic constructs like Dr. Noele LaLinde here, that’s a pretty good sign you need to get out of the lab more often.

Now that’s a discussion about the birds and the bees I’d like front seats to.

This questionable classification has been brought to you by Mega Man #13 (July 2012) by Ian Flynn, Matt Herms, Jonathan Hill, Patrick Spaziante, and Gary Martin.
