YAY surely fixing is to come! I’m so glad updates have returned, I have been awful worried about poor Chester hooray for Jess Fink!
Hooray! Back on track! I love this story <3
I don’t like the robot Chester, he was poorly designed (as in, robotically speaking…excellent drawings though! =D) A robot shouldn’t attack it’s creator..heck, a robot should attack at all..what happened to the the Three Laws of Robotics? lol
The idea of a robot somehow developing feelings of love and being forced to break the first wall over it would probably be one of those things Asimov would have been all over
Hey, it’s the XIXth Century. The Three Laws would be created far later ;]
Le Chacal beat me to it, but I was gonna say that Isaac Asimov hadn’t been born yet. If he had been, Frankenstein’s monster would have worked out better (and I’m talking about Shelly, not the movies)
Also, in the second-to-last panel, Chester should have said the only word in the whole comic: Die!
Nay, not die, but rather fie!
The Three Laws are rules for things. Chester is not a thing, he is a person.
@ Aaron – Normally, as a big Asimov fan, I would be all over the lack of three laws too… but remember that on some occasions, even Asimov’s robots committed some sort of violence.
Was Chester’s creator wrong in making him? Discuss.
He did make him so therefore it was right. Always looking back on your past and wondering “what if?” is the road to insanity I tell you! ;P

xD I love how the only thing Chester and Pricilla can think to do upon seeing the scientist is shake their respective fists. Also, dang the scientist is hot. I’m a sucker for redemption ;o
Also I think it should be noted that every time I’ve commented I’ve consistently typed “scientits” instead of “scientist.”
Robert is his mechanical creator, but not his spiritual creator. You can see it in the complete lack of a bond between then: any feeling of indebtedness on Chester’s part, and any consideration for Chester’s emotions, are both missing.
Who made his soul then? Could it be Pricilla?
@Dillon: I don’t think creating life is ever a mistake. Robert created Chester out of love. Does a parent think that they made a mistake in having kids just because they fight with their children?
Then again, children don’t steal your love interest… ^_^;
Stig: A person or not, Chester is still a robot.
“@ Aaron – Normally, as a big Asimov fan, I would be all over the lack of three laws too… but remember that on some occasions, even Asimov’s robots committed some sort of violence.”
1) The three laws were possible because Asimov postulated an incident during the creation of self aware robots that made the laws an unavoidable part of their positronic brains. Although, it did not always work out perfectly, see “Liar” for the details.
2) The three laws do not prohibit violence, even against humans. However, such an act would tend to cause shorting out of the positronic brain and make the robot non-functional.
