051 – My Earliest Memory (Part Three)

keeper_of_the_gate_smallI am sorry for posting this one so late at night. (I know, I know, it’s kinda a theme now isn’t it.) Only one more comic left before we return to the funny stuff. I promise.

Interesting note: This image of an ancient robot with a staff has been with me for YEARS. It first showed in this little drawing I did back in 2003 as a part of a daily sketch group.

Robot Beach has turned into a “dumping ground” of sorts for all of my old ideas… Cool!

You can buy the original art for this strip! Click here to learn more.

    Sweet! I like the drawing of the robot with staff. I think you meant to write “the last OF the statue” in the first narration box. I’m interested to see where this goes!

  2. Matt says:

    Thanks for catching that Tim. It’s weird, I always read and re-read my comic several times before I post it. Yet things like this always slip through. I think I have some minor dyslexia. I am pretty sure of it actually.

  3. I really like that older drawing. Great atmosphere.

  4. Jande says:

    Story is intriguing and that older image would make a fantastic huge poster. (I want one!)

  5. drewbie says:

    I don’t know about a poster, but if there was a 1280×1024 size, I’d use it as a background

  6. Matt says:

    Jande, drewbie – I don’t know if I can find a copy of this at a high enough resolution. I’d have o go digging through my archives and see what I can find for ya.

    I remember that. Had it as my backround for a while. . .

  8. Splox5 says:

    Most of the time I don’t like story strips that aren’t funny, but this arc is interesting.

  9. Chris says:

    I second @Splox5 that the arc is getting more and more interesting. Being well over 1900 years old there must be some incredible stories to tell.

    Any chance you could add a subscribe to comments plugin to WordPress? That makes it easy for me to follow the conversation.

  10. Matt says:

    Chris – I will take a look around and see what I can find about that. If I can add it for you, I will.
