Todays story is a complete webcomic about a handful of people. some built robots, others are robots. A queer scifi comic at it’s best: this is O Human Star by Blue Delliquanti

Blurb from the website:
„Alastair Sterling was the inventor who sparked the robot revolution. And because of his sudden death, he didn’t see any of it.
That is, until he wakes up 16 years later in a robot body that matches his old one exactly. Until he steps outside and finds a world utterly unlike the one he left behind – a world where robots live alongside their human neighbors and coexist in their cities. A world he helped create.
Now Al must track down his old partner Brendan to find out who is responsible for Al’s unexpected resurrection, but their reunion raises even more questions.
Like who the robot living with Brendan is. And why she looks like Al. And how much of the past should stay in the past…

O Human Star is one of the winners of the 2012 Prism Comics Queer Press Grant, an annual grant awarded to cartoonists publishing comics that feature LGBT characters and themes. It was nominated for the Ignatz Outstanding Online Comic award in 2015 and a Lambda Literary award in 2016, and it won Best Self-Published Work and Best in Show at the DINK Awards in 2016.“

It is a bit longer, then a short story for sure, but that is why I give this to you at the start of the weekend. As always: enjoy 😀
