Emobot 3000 Cleans, Weeps, Fears Women

Brilliant find. It's truly freakish how dull, pointless, and without redeeming value that little strip was. Also, I can't escape the implication that the robot is fucking the Professor. Not the other way around, notice -- the robot is fucking HIM. I'm sure of it.

Oy. I need to wash my brain.

So was Out of This World ever, you know, interesting? Or are these the most exciting and the other stories are all Threbixx from the planet Frammi picks up his mail?

Some of the longer features were pretty good, but there's not much they could do with two or three pages but fill two or three pages.
