  4. In this world is kill or be killed says:

    Love the last panel wish it was on a shirt :}

  5. SPARKYtheFOX says:

    Did hug bot miss calculate?

    1. Brian says:

      No, the guy just really needed a good hug

  6. somebody says:

    What is this font for robot speech?

    1. Gregor says:

      I draw over the fonts by hand, and for the robot speech I used ‘OCR A Std’ as the reference.

  7. Cheska says:

    NOOO…. not the hat guy!

  8. Jacob says:

    No spider this time?

    1. A potato says:

      The spider is in the 4th picture on the robots left mitt (that pink thing for her hands)

  9. Frank says:

    hug bots actually exists… and this was pretty much what I thought when I saw them

  10. Cam says:

    Tug bot would probably sell better

  11. Arnette says:

    Hey ya, great work as usual. I am new to your web comics but I already love it. I want to know when do you normally stream? Can you give the time in GMT since I am in Europe?

    *gives a robot hug*

    1. Gregor says:

      It’s been at 9pm GMT Wednesdays lately!

  12. 4596DEIF says:

    Where’s the spider?

    1. Jorb says:

      4th panel.

  13. Omega Lairon says:

    Maaaaaan… this blows. I got this regular-ass job now that doesn’t let me arrange my own hours, so now I get to miss out EVERY comic stream. >: (

    Great comic though – I could probably use a slightly less deadly version of that robot myself. As usual, it’s the amount of care and thought to the little details that really make it perfect.

    1. Gregor says:

      Oh no, sorry to hear it Omega! Everyone on the stream misses you and your leadership! Here’s hoping one of my future additional streams will be at a time better suited for you!

  14. Antoine (ant-one) says:

    I am seeing a great amelioration in your story telling! The skynet joke is a little bit overused, unless you meant that the guy wanted to die for some reason haha.

    1. Christopher says:

      As I understand it, the joke is that the man is so alone and depressed, that no hug could ever really make him feel better. The only thing that will end his anxiety, is his death. The robot’s scan confirmed this, and the robot complied.

      Gotta say, I love these webcomics, they’re consistently great in both the art and writing department, but sometimes I worry about the author. I hope you’re ok man.

      (that said, I loved this comic too. Made me smile)

      1. Thor says:

        I thought that it was just commenting that the man had a huge amount of emotions (presumably sadness or depression), so the robot escalated the intensity of the hug to match the emotional need.

        1. Leon DK says:

          Could also be a feedback cycle, of the hug making him feel safe, which caused more anxiety (brains are morons like that), meaning the hug had to be increased -> splatter.

        2. Christopher says:

          I think you’re right. My theory might’ve been overthinking things.

          1. CobraGRW says:

            I thought it was just because the robot was made out of metal. If I got squeezed by metal I’m pretty sure the same thing would happen to me.

      2. Goofy Guy says:

        but I thought that one of Asimov’s there robot laws is “don’t kill people”?

  15. Adrian says:

    Whoa. I think this is the darkest comic you’ve ever made.

  16. Adam says:

    say no to robot hugs… worst fear ever!

  17. Andrewben says:

    Whoa haha. Good stuff!
