Color version is now up! You can check out the black and white version of this strip here. Also, I apologize, but today’s commentary track will be a bit late… My iPhone is dead and I have no other way to record it right now. Look for that to go up tomorrow. Audio commentary is now available!

  1. Bearman says:

    Love the way you layed out this image.

  2. Going B&W? Nice change! It works, I think. Search for truth seems to be a theme I’m seeing a lot of these days… am excited to see where you take this story, Matt!

  3. Mike M says:

    Greetings Matt. First comment, but not new to your site. Been following pretty much since Robot took up surfing. I agree with Flawed . . . b&w looks good too. Story is taking an interesting turn. I’ll be staying tuned for sure . . .

  4. Chris says:

    Looking forward to the color version. The b&w version is OK but it really jumps to life when it is in color.

  5. drewbie says:

    I didn’t notice until Bearman pointed it out, but the layers are done very well.

  6. Matt says:

    Bearman – Thanks! Overall I am pretty happy with this as well.
    Paul – I’m excited to see where it goes too!
    Mike – Thanks for coming out of hiding! Always good to hear from people that they are enjoying the direction things are going.
    Chris – I agree, Color is where it is at!
    Drewbie – Thanks, although there is a bit of a perspective problem that makes me cross my eyes at times in this one… But, if it doesn’t bother you, It can’t be that bad!

    Love it. Makes me wanna jump in scene, and put my arm around his shoulders.

  8. Liam Bradley says:

    I also love the way you layed this out. You made him so small in the panel, giving him a sense of loneliness or helplessness. Fantastic image.

  9. Matt says:

    Thanks Liam, I had fun with the layout of this one. It is always nice to pull back and reveal a bit of the island. I know it’s cliche, but I really feel like the Island is as important of a character as anyone.

    he could use one of those feelgood robots as a m8…like robby from forbidden planet. or the one in star crash that should resemble darth vader…

    very beautiful panel …sometimes i think his purpose might have to do with the staue like the way it is on the easter islands…to kinda relay a message…
