A new edition of Adafruit’s comic reading list — this week it’s Freefall by Mark Stanley, the second in a series of webcomics recommended by Adafruit forum support guru Mike!
Florence Ambrose is an uplifted wolf (genetically engineered sapient) and starship engineer.
Sam Starfall is an alien squid in a mobility suit who “borrowed” Florence midway through her spaceflight to another job so she could fix his ship (the Savage Chicken).
Helix is a medium duty warehouse robot who’s Sam’s best friend.. and accomplice, when Sam can get around Helix’s law-abiding programming/nature.
The strip confronts tough issues — what counts as “human” and when does a machine become a person? — without ever losing a sense of basic innocence. Come for the angry mobs who expect ice cream when the riot is done, stay for the showdown in the Strategic Pie Reserve Warehouse.
