This strip, and its follow up (titled Home) have been in the pipeline for a while. I based the strip off a poem I wrote and pitched it knowing it was a long shot. We recently were going through some scripts that had been set aside and Becky got really excited about this idea – I’m super stoked at how the art turned out.
An adorably mangy kitten pokes its head out of a chink in the iron midsection, looking up at the robot with a mraow. The robot is surprised and delighted - it scratches the kitten’s head. Raindrops are just beginning to fall to earth.
