Wow, Jeph is actually going for it.  8-)

I expected at least some days of talking before hed go for the robot fighting, but here we are already. Now Im really curious where this will lead. How will the fighter-robots look like? Who are the people or AIs behind this fight-club? Will Faye actually do this? Will she make money of it? Enough to make a living? And if its illegal, will she need a regular job as a cover-up?

Questions over questions.

Anyway, this must be Pintsizes wet dream: carried around by Faye clutched to her bosoms. I wonder if he allready tried to squeeze them. Probaby not, as his head isnt allready dented yet.  :-D

It's very in character for Faye, though. I think she thought this through before she approached Pintsize - she knew she'd give it a shot it if there aren't some really big reasons not to (it's illegal, and that didn't deter her - she just asked how severe it was, because it's not worth decades in prison).  There still are a few more hurdles, though - she has to get into the scene before she actually starts, get to know her clients, figure out prices, limits, etc. Maybe get vouched for by Pintsize...

And I don't know if she would need a regular job - she's basically just selling fancy metal pieces. She sold something like that before (The Espresso-Dinosaur), and nothing would stop her or the customer from declaring those things as art (which explains the prices) or fancy custom-made (very, very uncomfortable) chairs or something.

And I hope she doesn't get a regular job - Faye just isn't that good with random people. She might be able to work with customers she respects, who buy something that she loves to do, but she really isn't cut out to working retail, especially with that American the-customer's-always-right-and-if-you're-not-a-doormat-you-get-fired culture.

On to meta: I'm enjoying this storyline. It isn't heavy with unnecessary drama, it's got Faye and Pintsize who do understand each other at their really sarcastic and funny level, and it is actually a storyline with development. And the art is really, really nice.

The question that occurs to me is this: Are the skater kids in on this or are the members of the robot fight club just hiding behind their incompetence? Either way works but I know which is funnier. The Three Stooges always gets more laughs than Illuminati.

Unless you're playing the Paranoia table-top RPG, in which case the two merge but I digress...

I have indeed seen skaters pull off tricks. I do not live in Northampton. It has been some years since I've seen a skater do anything other than glide by, however.

That sort of behavior wouldn't fly in pretty much any other kind of customer service job. She got away with it at the CoD because that is kind of their 'thing'. Jobs where you are a shit to your customers are pretty rare though.

Jeph really needs to work on finding a separate style for his two comics, because this looks like Faye just wandered onto the set of an upcoming Alice storyline.  It's way too early for a crossover.

Edit: Sorry, that sounded less snobby in my head.  Still, the look of this strip (location and new character) feels more like it belongs in Alice Grove, so it's just a bit jarring to see it in QC instead.

Well... If nothing else, they need a cleaner. I know that dirt isn't as much as an issue for synthetics as it is for organics but, even so, there are going to be a lot of exposed machinery in this place and I, for one, wouldn't want grime getting into my joints, servos and interface sockets!

Meanwhile... Am I the only one who thinks that Jeph based Big Red's face on Alice?

Also, a prediction: Big Red is going to be Faye's 'interface', the character she talks with to get her questions answered. She might even end up as her friend!

Finally, yes, it occurs to me that if you are going to have illegal prize fights, then illegal cyber-porn is a logical side-business. I have no doubt that, to Faye's biological eyes, it will look like an exercise in practical multi-device peer-to-peer networking.

[EDIT]
P.S.: Jeph's news post puzzles me. If Big Red's name is 'Bubbles', then I, for one, would insist on hearing her back-story. The thought that she might be the companion/guardian to a sweet little girl occurs to me.

Massive fighting robots to face off in battle

A Japanese developer of massive robots has accepted a challenge to battle from a U.S. rival.

Wearing American flags as capes, MegaBots co-founders Matt Oehrlein and Gui Cavalcanti issued their challenge to Japanese robot maker Suidobashi in a video posted to YouTube.

"We have a giant robot. You have a giant robot. You know what needs to happen," Oehrlein says in the clip.

Suidobashi has accepted that challenge.

"We can't let another country win this. Giant robots are Japanese culture," says Suidobashi CEO Kogoro Kurata in a response video.

Both of the robots, MegaBots Inc.'s Mark II and Suidobashi Heavy Industry's Kuratas, are piloted by humans from within a cockpit. The Mark II weighs 6,800 kilograms, has massive paintball guns in place of arms and requires two pilots to operate. The Kuratas, which has been in development for three years, is much lighter than its American rival, has a single pilot and carries a BB Gatling cannon capable of firing 6,000 rounds per minute .

You know, the thing is, before I noticed the title, I'd assumed Bubbles was male... but looking again, I can't not see it.  She's basically Gavia after a trip to the gym.

I like Bubbles. Traditionally, the fighting robot niche has always been for men and male robots. However, she is a positive role model for violent women everywhere!

No, I think that Bubbles is going to be Faye's fighter. More specifically, Faye is going to be Bubbles' chief engineer, pit boss and crew chief. Introducing her new work colleague to her friends will be... interesting.

It seems a reasonable assumption so far. Either that or a nearly full conversion cyborg. She has the same square speech balloons that Pintsize has, and plenty of Anthro PCs have sufficiently life like synthetic coverings. Remember that Momo has been mistaken for a human teen a few times.

You need to watch the kids in the space under the Queen Elisabeth Hall in London, then.

I see they seemed to have dropped the plans to close up the undercroft and build shops there. As if London needed more coffee shops.

Momo sometimes doesn't but I think that was just Jeph misformating.

I gotta be honest, I'm extremely interested in seeing the rest of Jeph's Northampton. This is a very different area than we've seen before, and I'm excited to see how Jeph creates the ambiance of an (technically in a non-specific manner)illegal robo-fight-club of an outwardly ordinary college town.

More importantly, we need to meet Bubbles.

You know, the thing is, before I noticed the title, I'd assumed Bubbles was male... but looking again, I can't not see it.  She's basically Gavia after a trip to the gym.
Curious. It didn't occur to me that Bubbles' outward gender-presentation was not female. Her overall body-shape, with hips wide in proportion to her shoulders, is a pretty solid cue, even before we get into her eyelashes. She certainly looks formidable, though I'm sure Faye could improve her armour protection.

You need to watch the kids in the space under the Queen Elisabeth Hall in London, then.
It would be a bit of a long trip...

Uh, she's kind of hard to miss, being eight feet tall and kind of maroon-colored.
