Your comic is super cool and unique and I am so excited to write you this letter oh my goodness good golly gosh!!! First of all: I love how complex, emotional, confusing, and interesting your comic is. I really enjoy reading each chapter and seeing how the main character interacts with the different robot communities. To see how different these robots are “not efficient” is really cool. Your comic really nicely touches on how complex and diverse oppression can be. How a group can oppress and feed off one or how a system can oppress a population. There is so much emotion and thought that is reflected in your work. I enjoy reading it because it really makes you think about your own feelings about oppression and society. Who am I oppressing? Are my relationships healthy? How can I be the most efficient?

I like how the main character is the outside robot who comes in and inspires/ enacts change. I am excited to find out what their overall purpose is and if they are really doing a good thing destroying the social structure of the groups they visit. And why did they suddenly get a tail?! I love their design and really all your character designs! Your robots and the landscapes feel really organic and natural. Your characters do have robotic characteristics and mannerisms, but they look like organisms that have evolved and always lived in their environments? I am interested in learning more about their origins.

I also want to comment on your color schemes, because they are on point. I love the muted tones and you just make really smart color choices that look great. Your style is very practiced and refined. It is clear that you’ve taken time to perfect your craft and have developed your own language of drawing things.

I could go on and on. I just really love your work and am excited to read more.

Keep up the hard work and being creative!

Love,

The Webcomic Whisperer
