In Which a Descendant Learns an Important Lesson About Robots

Like any self respecting blogger, I love seeing my name in print, hence this reprint. I like to think that Joe Hughes is a wayward 23rd century descendant who has to figure out the hard way that manual labor sucks. This comes out of Marvel Masterworks: Atlas Era Tales of Suspense, which actually has three or four other stories in which robot haters learn to love robots. This is the best drawn one though, rendered by master draftsman Al Williamson. Beware...








"Beware of the...Robots!"
Originally printed in Tales of Suspense #4, 1959
Script: Stan Lee and/or Larry Leiber
Art: Al Williamson

BWAHAHAHAHAHA!!

Yeah, right, and Lou Dobbs is going to thank an immigrant for picking fruit so he can have a television show.

Jeez, apparantly "The O'Reilly Factor" doesn't survive into the year 2270...

He should have brought Magnus: Robot Fighter in on the case.

Robots can be great tools (just like software can). Unfortunately tools don't do the thinking for you. The biggest problem with management is the thinking part, which robots don't help. But I agree, overall, I think automation is an net benefit, but it could be much more beneficial than it has been, when done intelligently.
