I’m sure jefbot wishes the “interface” experiment had gone better but it’s time to cut his losses and get out of there. As for where bot heads now is something that he’s surely pondering right about now, especially with Mu being unavailable for directions or advice.
Keeping this short so I can post this strip before it gets any later. Thanks for waiting!
Just wanted to say i love the comic
thanks, Balorth! your affection is greatly appreciated!
and check you out: you secured the first comment so you get the Shades of Firsting! wear them well – these are perfect for hiking through hills in the dark:
Dammit, I could have actually had those…the Braves game went crazy-late.
Y’know, that last panel is so badass and chilling…meanwhile I can’t help but think ‘bot’s inner monologue is something like “holy crap is that steep…I think I’ll just go around that one…”
wow! that musta been a seriously long game, JOE.
and i think you’re hearing bot’s inner monologue correctly: there’s no way he’s gonna tackle that mountain head on with all the stuff he’s lugging around now!
Actually, it was an almost-4-hour rain delay, so a 7:05 start time became a 10:50 start time. From what I hear, the fans were getting pretty loopy in the stands and a lot of balls were being called as strikes just to get the game over with.
I think the only reason they didn’t call it was because we already had a rain delay from the last time they were up against the Mets.
that mighta been a fun game to be at, if only to see the fans slowly losing their minds, JOE. heheh.
I need that last panel as a poster!
hmm… i’m ramping up the BOTshop to handle prints, DAS – if enough people like that last panel, maybe i’ll do a limited run. happy you like it!
I agree with DAS. great last panel. worth wallpapering
cool. i’ll try and figure something out this weekend.
yes,i would buy it
sweet! i’ll see what i can do, Balorth. 🙂
Something dangerous awakened within, mark my words.
…Still not sure about dangerous to whom though.
you could be right, Maryz. i believe the danger’s only going to ramp up from here…
I love the gradual absorption of the red in ‘bot’s eyes.
And that he totally kicked furry mutant kiester, of course.
yes! it’s fortunate that bot was able to contain his red rage, Sarah W! let’s hope it stays contained.
So, the sidekick becomes the hero.
at least for now, TPC.
mastered the weapon… Now he goes off to save (the world, or his girlfriend. His girlfriend probably matters more though.) Can jefbot do this? Or will he?
good questions, Hides In The Dark. let’s hope he can and will!
I love that Bot is stepping up to the challenge here. He seems more confident and mature than he frequently does in the strips. And I’ve gotta say I love the look of that last panel. 😀
heheh. he’s more “confident and mature” for now, at least, Shanna! we’ll see if he can stay that way throughout this adventure. and, thanks! glad you like that last panel; it’s what delayed this strip going up on time. 🙂
Love all the night scenes, but that last panel is awesome!
thanks, Mombot! if i make prints, i’ll make sure to set one aside for ya. 😀
After this, there is only one thing to do *applause*
awww. i’m sure jefbot could use the applause right about now, Graypatch – he’s gotta be feeling somewhat alone as he starts off on the next stage of his adventure.
Wallpaper alert on last panel! 😀
And so ends another streak… But I’ll be back with a vengeance in 2 weeks! Pity I won’t be able to see how the bot’s badassness develops 🙁
if i make a wallpaper out of it, i’ll be sure and notify y’all, f_f! thanks.
and we’ll miss ya while you’re gone. you can catch up on any badassery when you get back!
Jefbot, the adventures of a wandering samurai in hollywood
heheh. hollywood needs a samurai, JBJ!
You don’t make things easy on your alter-ego, do you?
nope! he not only has to get out of there, but has to lug his friends along with him now, GB! 🙂
Very pretty strip.
Plastic Katana Samurai!
ha! i was thinking along these lines too, Bbullock. maybe someday bot will run into his cardboard tube-wielding counterpart. 😉
Well, here’s my attempt at turning the last panel into a Japanese watercolor…it’s kind of bad, but it’s the end of the day and I’m about to leave the office:
nice! i’m diggin’ it, JOE!
Well hopefully Bot wont have to deal with any more patrols until after Mu wakes up. It’s could also be hoped that Mu hasn’t contracted some sort of virus or something.
let’s hope that’s the case, Fijiman – bot’s gotten by on a little bit of rage and luck so far, so it’s probably not wise for him to take on another patrol just yet. and, yes – a virus for Mu would be BAD.
Well hopefully Mu will recover soon. That way Jefbot isn’t walking through a forest trying to find a UFO he doesn’t know the exact location of.
true that, GB. and they were also gonna try to find Mu’s friend before heading toward the ship, too.
I can’t help but think there’s not as much room for supplies with Musashi in the bag. Also, I discovered that there was samurai by the name of Musashi Miyamoto. He was particularly famous for dual wielding a Katana anda Wakizashi… are you foreshadowing anything?
yeah, i imagine jefbot had to toss out some of their supplies, blackjacket42. most likely the Cheez-its but not the GBA SP, of course.
as for Musashi’s name – you’re right on the money: “Musashi Miyamoto” is Mu’s namesake, and foreshadowed his future abilities back when he was just jefbot’s un-enhanced, little pet. 😀
Man, Bot looks to awesome in the last panel. Reminds me of something from Samurai film.
awesome, jeff137529a! that’s what i was going for. 🙂
Wow your detail is beautiful as always and I love the last panel too.
thanks, Kris! going to try to put that last panel up as a print and/or a wallpaper soon.
From first to this latest one, I read them all starting yesterday. As a fan of QC and CAD, I’m really digging your style, story-lines, and your attention to your fans as they post comments and stuff. You and your comic are quickly becoming my favorite. I’ll stop cheesing now. Keep it up, and I hope to see some Cel action real soon.
thanks for consuming the entire JEFbot run so quickly, GopherGuts! your kind words about the stories and art are much appreciated, and i’m happy to be counted amongst your faves! 😀
as for cel – we’ll be finding out her fate during this very storyline, so stay tuned.
Looking at this a second time, the last frame gave me an urge to play the “Lonely Man” theme from The Incredible Hulk.
