I really, really dug this. Paper copy ordered!

I love the style of the artwork! I will save this for later, when I won't have work stuff to distract me.

That was great. I have huge respect for people who tell a story purely through pictures, without resorting to dialogue. It takes a real understanding of visual language.

Awesome, as usual!

It's...unfinished, right? Otherwise I'm not sure I get the ending.

Awesome work, though.

I loved it, but am sad to admit I didn't quite get the ending. He finished modding his PS3, and was able to find joy in the world again?

Was he able to use his machine to see in to some kind of a "robot soul" that he had be searching for?

Oh hey, the guy lives in my city! I'm tempted to call the number on his website and be all "hi, you don't know me, but about the flash of light coming out of the guy's apartment..."

Lovely art, but the ending was...telegraphed.

What does the guy say at the end that explains why everybody is laying on the ground?

It's important to finish your time machine, so you can go back and finish some uplifting graffiti.

Really enjoyed this until I couldn't figure the ending. I thought they were going to be friends!

Thanks for posting this, killdevil!

I apologize if the ending is too ambiguous for some people's liking. It was never my intention to reveal what the machine does, so you'll just have to use your imaginations.

Thanks for reading!

Hey, Robot Johnny, I really liked this. You wouldn't want a clearer ending (or why would you think about it later?) or a more unexpected ending (that would be too unsatisfying...)

Keep up the good work... do you have a mailing list?

That was lovely, thanks.

Ha! I didn't realize the ending was the ending. It thought it would be laid out in the next few weeks or months.

It's better this way. Because we know what has happened, and what will happen.

A wonderful story. Thank you.
