I’ve had a stack of coverless comics sitting around. Looking through them, I liked this page. Great combination of decisive inks, clear staging, and wonky rushed proportions/construction. I love that guy’s purple coat, and the little town in the middle panel. It’s likably shoddy. Since the book was really just scraps, I don’t know who the artist is, sry. Let me know and I’ll add it.

"Even if robot warriors can keep American lives out of danger, can they be trusted with the complicated combat decisions now left to human judgment?

Rep. Jim McGovern thinks not. The Massachusetts Democrat is part of a crusade for an international ban on killer robots—machines that can decide without human input whom to target and when to use force. The only way to stop killer robots, said McGovern and a series of panelists he assembled for a Capitol Hill briefing this week, is to ban them before they even exist. Much like drones, once someone gets a killer robot, it’s only a matter of time before everyone else is racing to catch up. And despite some countries’ commitment to evaluating the technology responsibly, good intentions never won an arms race.

[…][C]oncerns include the possibility of malicious hackers taking over a robot army. And then there’s the possibility of a “flash war” starting over a mistake. If one robot malfunctions and fires, robots on the other side could return fire automatically, starting a conflict at the speed of circuitry before a human could intervene.

Despite all these concerns, robot advocates say the rush to ban the technology outright is ill-conceived. While preaching caution on development, they also say it’s important to test the systems’ limits before crafting policy. They fear a ban based on imaginations of an android toting a machine gun could interfere with lifesaving technologies like rapid-response air-defense missiles."

The government is actively debating the morality and legality of Murder-Robots this week.  With “robot advocates”. (via twiststreet)

Packing to move, found this abandoned woodblock. The text was too small for my tools/skills to carve cleanly and readably. You can see in the 2nd pic where I started carving and messed up. In the last pic, I went ahead and flipped it in Pshop so you can see how the print should have read. 

This block is from a series of one-page strips I’ve been doing, and I’m going to start posting them online in the next week in advance of putting them together as a book for the Fall.
