Robotman

Robotman was a comic strip that was similar to Calvin and hobbes, but never gained the same popularity. The one below is is my favorite comic strip of all time. I snipped it out of the newspaper when I was a little kid and kept it all these years so I could share it with you. I don’t know why, but I just love how understated it is, how it plays with the horror conventions, how it confounds your expectations and how the ending is left unresolved.

I read about another Sunday colour strip involving Robotman sitting on the sofa watching a scary movie on TV while Jason Voorhees lurks in the background holding an axe in his hands. If anyone has that one, please let me know, so I can include it here.

    That’s a funny comic strip, turned out the normal guy was the phycho. I think.
