    Robot Solves the Water Crisis

    Comic written and illustrated by Ryan Reid

    Panel 1: ROBOT is showing his INVENTION to FRANCIS.


    Good news, Francis! I solved the water crisis!

    Panel 2: Close up of ROBOT and his INVENTION. Sound effect: CLICK!

    ROBOT (sincerely)

    This device will open a tiny fissure in space-time, allowing the abundant fresh water from pre-history to flow into the now! Watch this!

    Panel 3: A gigantic pre-historic WHALE-like creature appears out of nowhere, with a moist POP! sound. ROBOT and FRANCIS are startled.

    Panel 4: Close crop on the eye of the WHALE. ROBOT and FRANCIS lean in off panel.

    ROBOT (angry)

    Oh, great! Another special interest blocking scientific progress!

    Panel 5: ROBOT and FRANCIS walking away from the WHALE. ROBOT tosses his INVENTION away.


    Seriously, Francis - if I knew it would be hard I never would’ve bothered.
