Comics finds

Postby FaceoffFembot » Fri Oct 20, 2017 6:15 am

So I think we could use a unified comics ("graphic novels" if you're an insecure snob) instead of scattershot threads, and I'll open it with some bande dessinée digs.

In addition to Mœbius, Janjetov and Gimenez's lush visions and Jodorowsky's priapic headtrips, the Incal/Metabarons universe features homeoputes, custom-made-to-order robotic sex workers. They're more background texture than anything, but it's still a cool find.

Mœbius also previously visited the idea of fembots in 1975 in the first issue of Métal Hurlant magazine (Heavy Metal), in Split: Le petit pionnier de l’espace.

There's definitely more to find at the library, as I remember Golden City and probably some of Enki Bila's work featuring female robots.

Nice finds! If I remember right, the old Gynoid Gallery had a couple of panels from that last one on the front page for years back in the old days. :D

What does everyone think? Should we have a sticky-post for comic finds? Do we have enough of them regularly?

Oh absolutely!

I've got three good ones.

Star Wars: Agent of the Empire Volume 1 - Iron Eclipse (Dark Horse, Issues 1-5). Prominently features a fembot character named Inga who is fairly central to the story.

https://www.amazon.com/Star-Wars-Agent-Empire-Eclipse/dp/1595829504/

Ultimate Vision (Marvel, Issues 0-5). In the Ultimate-universe, Vision is a gold female robot, instead of a pink mandroid. The art in this series is very well done.

https://www.amazon.com/Ultimate-Vision-Issues-6-Book/dp/B018847TEY/

The Terminator: Death Valley (Dark Horse, Issues 0-4). Another good one with solid art, though not in the 0-issue. The premise is that two T-800 Terminators (one male, and one female) are sent back in time to assassinate John Connor, except they mistaken start hunting the wrong family.

Hello everybody! It is I, your friendly community member potato-man, KinoLangDanzel, returning from an extended vacation (just recently moved and had installed the Wi-Fi just a few hours ago). Anyway I got 2 comic finds.

-Venom: License to Kill Issue #2 & #3
http://readcomiconline.to/Comic/Venom-License-to-Kill
Oddly, they refer to themselves as 'cyborgs' when their master clearly called them 'androids'.

-Spider-Man: Legacy of Evil
http://www.marvunapp.com/Appendix4/goblinwomen.htm
The link above just goes to a page dedicated to the gynoids that appear in the comic.
I can't find any free reading sites with that comic, so if anyone has it/can find a site that has it (not buying it), please send screenshot images/pics to FembotWiki.

See ya and hope this helps. :thumbsup:

Amazing find with the Venom comics~ either those girls are self aware and disagree with their "master" or the writers can never decide on what their designation cyborgs or androids, truly is.

Same problem in the latest "Weapon X" series. At first the assassin androids are called that and talked about as mere robots, then later its noted they were humans converted to compete robots. Then the whole subject dropped outside of Stryker himself.
Also in the Japanese manga "Cannon God Exaxxion" The professor's "harem" are at first described as all androids (except one human girl) then later without any clarification it seems the writers changed this and the entire girl squad are humans but have android "doubles" I hate these continuity-shattering changes on a whim.
I thought this could be a mere mistranslation, but the Japanese version (which Ive read to double-check) makes the same changes mid-story. Except for the "Character introductions"

Found a new one.
Star Lord & Kitty Pryde #2
http://readcomiconline.to/Comic/Star-Lord-and-Kitty-Pryde/Issue-2?id=60300
Featuring robotic doppelgangers of the New Mutants called the New Mutdroids. Two female robots here but the robot version of Majik is the more human looking of the two.
