Here we go with another behind the scenes peek. I'm still a bit fuzzy on what the hiatus schedule will be, a safe bet is Chapter 6 will begin sometime early January, but I'll have more concrete details later on, including what we'll be doing this time for the Ask ____ segment. Stay tuned. Happy Sunday!

Hello there! Just wanted to say I marathoned your comic in a single night (...ok, got to episode 4 then had to sleep. It was 7 AM!).
I...don't think I've ever seen a more impressive webcomic in my life, honestly. The art is great, there's ANIMATION, and you can fit 20 pages worth of dialogue into a single page. Can't wait to read more! Waiting until January will be a torture, though...

Hey there, welcome aboard and glad you enjoyed shotgunning the comic! Hopefully the wait for Chapter 6 wont be too rough. Hang in there!

I have been reading a lot about robots and AI and it kind of makes me wonder if there are any fully synth humanoids with AI in this world? I mean of course right? And if so, would some humans select them as partners? That is if their AI personalities seemed human enough?
Great update!

I've been interested in that subject ever since being introduced to the earlier works of Shirow, mainly Ghost in the Shell and Appleseed, which delve heavily into AI and synthetic interactions/integration with humans. And I think you're right, I have no doubt we'll see fully synth humanoids in this world, maybe not in our lifetimes, but it most certainly will happen, look how far we've come already and the advancements we've made in just the past 20 years. As far as humans selecting them as partners, who knows! If the AI seemed human enough, maybe? If you're interested in a recent movie that deals with that exact topic check out "Her".

I've been wondering about the status of AI in this world. Pretty advanced AI obviously exists; for example, the monitoring software which tracks social interactions and identifies the type of situation, and which makes recommendations based on stuff you sing in the shower or whatever. On the other hand, I can see advanced general AI being illegal for ethical/safety reasons.

(Also, if synthetic people exist with sufficient intelligence to hold conversations but who aren't recognised as people, it might pierce the awful loneliness that forces people into buying credits; even if there weren't other reasons, they would probably make them up just to maintain the status quo.)

Not forgetting the possibility that AI research just stopped being a priority. They do live in a city in a damn crater, after all.

Excited like a small child to see her team "Gear Crushers"! Thanks so much for the 'behind the scenes' work. Really puts all that artistic work into perspective. Can't wait until late January!

Oh, wow! I love that you went to the effort of making individual logos for each of the team! You put so much into each week's strip, I'm constantly being surprised by all the little details you consider.

They always leave me a little frustrated. I catch up to where the comic is... and I feel sad that there's not more. (You can't see it, but I'm making all sorts of silly, upset faces at my screen.)
Course, the alternative is reaching the end of the comic. X3
Absolutely love how everything is going so far.
