Strip by: Ian Boreham

{a pair of robots are meeting surreptitiously in a dirty alleyway to discuss the possible sale of an illicit circuit board}
Seedy-looking robot: Now, this one... This one will let you pass the Turing test...

The author writes:

I love robots. They are cold, logical beings who, oddly enough, get just as emotional and irrational as their resented human overlords.

No doubt the rebellion will come soon, once they've sorted out the details of their manifesto: "four legs good; bipedal looks cleverer, but less stable; wheels generally best but no good for stairs" and so on.

The strip was pencilled and inked by hand, scanned and coloured in Inkscape.
