Well, this is how Esteban looks, and his wife. As mentioned on the extras page, they're not poor, but Esteban's body costs a fortune to maintain. Unlike most of the other robots in the city, Esteban wants to be both quite humanlike and extremely mighty.

Sure. People who can't normally reproduce but are good parents can adopt nowadays, it's basically the same principle.

Why is his body so much to maintain. I know he is a wrestler but couldn’t you use carbon steel and titanium alloys and whatever other shenanigans you have in the future to make a super durable robot. Even in today’s world you can make a professional battle bot for fewer than 20 grand and have it go through hell and back without it breaking.

It's the joints. Full-motion high-power high-speed joints. Nearly every other robot sacrifices two of the three for ease of maintenance.

For example, Gretel uses high-speed joints, but their load is poor and she has limited motion (can't raise her arms above her head, for starters). Kersey has full mobility, but is slow ("deliberate") and not very strong.

Of course, it's relative. Gretel's "low power" musculature is still a good two or three times stronger than an equivalent bulk of human muscle.

To be clear: this guy is not just affecting the wrestler motif. He is the strongest, fastest thing in the town. He just has to pay a little on the side for that level of precision and power.

Don't worry about it, just remember that I'm very rarely angry. I only get angry at trolls, and here I'm more likely to just delete their comments. Although I haven't had to, yet.

I'm both pleased and distressed that your second comment carries with it no whiff of irony, despite it appearing directly after the first.

Actually, sex with robots isn't really my style of porn. It's too close to a comic about masturbation.

Sure, this guy's independent, but I might as well write porn about a real wrestler having sex: him being a robot really adds nothing but random mechanical complexity.

But even your porn is about the love story underneath. if I wanted mindless fucking, there's plenty of that out there...

Other men pay attention, this comment is the explanation of why some girls like trashy romance novels so very much.

I'm confused... are you agreeing with my statement? ?? Or....???

That's what I mean. What advantage does a robot have in a love story?

Well, aside from a few I'll show you in this comic - but in terms of pornographic attraction, all I can think of is technophilia.

Technophilia, it's gonna be big.

She always dresses too well. It's a cultural thing, and Esteban loves it. Not that she's a trophy wife, but he does like it when she makes everyone else jealous of him.

I'm very partial to Hindi dress... And I loved Inara Sera in Firefly/Serenity.

I didn't even realise she was dressed "too well" :)

But do they serve anything more than an aesthetic function? Or are they just like any ol' male's nipples?

Not really. There's a little in the pages after that, but most of the fanservice is in the late-middle chapters.

I was just joking regarding the robo nipples and the assumed intercourse. Every page you draw is fanservice.

No... This doesn't mean that Estaban is going to ask his good friend Jim to be the surrogate father...
Hmmm, this could explain why his wife is blushing...

I read the comments before posting this because I didn't want to annoy you by being the 472th person to ask this. Esteban's wife is to quote Bruce Almighty "B-E-A-utiful" what is her name? I'll let every1 else worry about the weird stuff.

I was left wondering if Esteban yoinked Jim and Miwa off the street so one of them could BE their child.

For a moment or so. No longer than that.
