I think Gary's going to be a cool guy. He'll probably help them stop the Martians because he considers that other one to be a "Dick".

Indeed, I do smell potential here. Potental for switching sides. And the potential that Gary is a female name on Mars. Hey, who knows whats UNDER that robotic exosuit?

Because it is customary to post the strip in the discussion forum, here it is.

I agree with Cenaris. I think that Art may end up bonding with the poor... floating robotic carrot. The issue will be convincing the Quads not to disassemble him.

It is refreshing and reassuring to know that even a fantastically advanced machine civilisation has its Omegas who are shafted on every assignment and have to be satisfied with less. People, it seems, are a problem wherever you go and no matter their tech level.

I say they look like coffins. Also, am I the only one who's wondering how they're floating?

Dr Eggma.... I mean Dr Robotnik made them. Or they're squiddies from the Matrix. Or they're Cybermen 2.0

Hey, Daleks can fly without any obvious means of support, so can most sci-fi spaceships. Just put it down to the work of a "Becauseisaidso Machine". Razz

I still say there might be a chanceThat underneath the hard robotic shell is female alien cuteness, possibly even a new addition to the cast.

Should I be imagining them talking in the same voice as the Daleks from Doctor Who?

Or a super hot bounty hunter in a blue suit, just sayin'.

You can call him what you like. However, I'm pretty sure that 'dick' is what he is, not who he is. Razz

That's an old comic strip trope. Random and disposible mooks are interchangable and have no recognisable individual features (e.g. Cobra soldiers, Dalek grunts). Individual distinctiveness of any kind usually is a foreshadowing of plot, character development and being a recurring, important figure in at least this arc. Heck he has a name instead of being just 'floating Carrot-o'Doom #10', that should be a give-away that Jack's planning to do something with him.

Or her, as some have suggested.

Of course, it is just possible that Jack is playing with our heads. Knowing us to be a fairly discerning and knowledgable bunch, he can play around with us by misleading our genre savvy.

Yes, except Gary, whose voice has more intonation, expressiveness and modulation.

Arise the downtrodden, Garys/oppressed workerbots of the world unite! You have nothing to lose but your restraining bolts!

But seriously, what is the deal with harvesting cow parts? Is that something the aliens do to tick the lower ranked aliens off? or do they give jobs like that to the special ed aliens?

It's the make-work waste-of-time task that is given to all the uncool unpopular 'bots to keep them out of the way whilst the cool, popular 'bots are doing fun stuff.

Or maybe they're planning something like when Zim was poisoning cows. Except without the fail.

(look up "Gir goes crazy and stuff" on YouTube)

(yes, I know it's upside down. it was either that, or someone with a camera pointed at his tv.)
(Also, I'm new, so I'm not allowed to link directly.)

I just hope he doesn't become a regular. Too many characters makes for clutter.

If he becomes as secondary as Vanity, that'd be fine.

While this was bumped, how do you post the strip in the forums, anyway? I never got that.

Well, only if you use them a couple at a time or all together as a group.

Case in point: Summer Wars. Had about 20~30 main characters and I loved it.

Go to the strip, right-click on the image and select 'Properties' (or whatever the Chrome or Firefox equivalents are to get the URL for the image). Copy the image URL to your clipboard. Then go to the forum, press the little "insert image" icon and paste the URL into the link box that appears.

If you prefer, you can just paste the URL into the message box and manually add the IMG and /IMG tags.

Ahhhhh. I didn't see that. Thank you.

It's a bit different with what I'm using, Seamonkey, but it works still.

Any newer Firefox build (and I'd guess SeaMonkey too) has "Copy image location" in the context menu - saves you the work of selecting the URL, copying via the context menu and closing the properties window...

np: Squarepusher - Tundra 4 (Venus No. 17)

I guess I either need to update Seamonkey or it's not there. Thanks anyway tho.
