So I have this friend, @Roewoof on twitter. This morning, while catching up on her feed, I stumbled across her often very NSFW tumblr, (hey, if you click it, you've been warned, okay?) which in turn led me to discover an absolutely amazing comic.
It's about a robot girl, going to a new school, and feeling socially awkward, and alone, until she makes a friend. Here's a page from it.
I know you're going to want to read the whole thing, which is available online, in two tumblr posts. Here's a link to the first one.
It's damn brilliant. I've never been a young robot girl, that I know of. But I instantly understood how both characters felt. I think we've all been there, being the new kid, not quite comfy in our skin, clothes, class, whatever. On a deep, deep level this thing speaks to me.
I'm so grateful I stumbled across it. I know you will be too.
OH OH - if you really dig it like I do - you can buy it for $3 at gum road.
