    Except for the “cold”, no, this is NOT a bad thing.
    I like Jo. I think I’m warming up to her.

    Thank you, I’ll be here all week.

    Who is Jo speaking to? Not Sam? Skye in an off lighting? (showing hair as brown instead of black)

  • Perfect. Well done!

  • WayneM

    Imagination, perception, judgement, language, consciousness & empathy? At least three of those disqualify Jo from running as a Democrat…

    • GWB

      At least two of them disqualify her from running as GOPe, too.

    The new progressive catchphrase is “post-human”. The conventional wisdom on that side is that machines will replace us, and the enlightened ones will upload their consciousness into the network, thereby becoming the gods they have always conceived themselves to be.

    Those of us who remain organic will likely be fed into the mass-converters. Unless of course they keep some as slaves to feed their own egos. (See The Dancers of Noyo by Margaret St. Clair.)

    How they expect to make this work in the Bronze Age agrarian feudalist/socialist environment they wish to create with the Green New Deal is not entirely clear. Someone should explain to them that the Hunger Games world can’t possibly work.

    Not that they’ll believe it. Magical thinking is the only kind they ever bother using.

    Final frame Chris; one of the finest rendtions of the form ever. Nicely done. “Humanish”? Yeah, I’d say so. 🙂

    Oh that teddy

    “Like the Eternal Man, like Gilgamesh, one thousand plus six hundred and sixty days stretches before Jo. Until she can restore Freedom to the humans who gave her mobility, movement, and perhaps…Life?” (Borrowed from The OUTER LIMITS ep “Demon with the Glass Hand”)

    Iknow, I know, The math isn’t quite exact to the 2020 election day, but hey, artistic license…

    Zar Belk!

    Man that humanish thing is HOT to be so cold…

    If those running for office think being human is so bad, you wouldn’t think they would be doing their best to make it so bad for us all to be running FROM office.

    Why don’t they just STFU and let us live?

      “Why don’t they just STFU and let us live?”

      We are not yet servile enough to be a proper slave class that is obedient and ultimately disposable.

      Plant-based diets risk ‘dumbing down’ the next generation, nutritionist warns

      As I remember being a key part of an ancient episode of 21 Jump Street, cults promote a no-meat vegetarian diet because the lack of key nutrients promotes obedience, as researchers long knew. Then criticizing no-meat diets became Very Bad. Now our moral, ethical, and intellectual betters want to make no-meat mandatory to Save The Planet™ from GlobalClimateWarmingChange, except for maybe free-range crickets humanely harvested.

      The elite are currently hoping the ongoing tech revolution will remove the need for a permanent worker class altogether, leaving only occasional minions that could be rented.

    Loved it! 😉

    So, now we know why it’s called Skynet.

    • Chris Muir

      Wondering if someone was gonna get that.:)

        Artwork is excellent! Eyes on Jo and Skye done very well. Making Jo Asian in the last shot was pretty nicely done as well.

        Baensboro can use Javier’s cybernetic skills…

  • Tunadavis

    Jo’s learned behaviors of imagination, perception, judgement… reminds me of a new series on Netflix- “Better than us” about a robot with these skills who attached herself to a family. Anyone seen it? It’s Russian, dubbed in English, and really good.
