Adafruit’s comic reading list: Vexxarr by Hunter Cressall #adafruitcomics
A new edition of Adafruit’s comic reading list — this week it’s Vexxarr, by Hunter Cressall the third in a series of webcomics recommended by Adafruit forum support guru Mike!
Vexxarr was sent from the Bleen Empire to conquer the Earth. It didn’t go so well. He was captured, and humanity became a spacefaring species almost overnight.
Now Vexxarr is on the run from the Bleen, who consider him a traitor, and has come to see the entire universe his enemy…starting with Minionbot (his robotic ‘assistant’) and Carl, the ship’s computer, who’s a combination of Bleen technology and Linux.
Where Freefall is innocent, Vexxarr is cynical. There’s a great deal of slapstick (and cake), and no matter how much Vexxarr broods, he knows he’ll never be in the same league as Sploorfix (from Epsilon Beta Schlumpy) whose heartfelt pleas for peace and understanding can make a light switch commit suicide.
Make a robot friend with Adafruit’s CRICKIT – A Creative Robotics & Interactive Construction Kit. It’s an add-on to our popular Circuit Playground Express, FEATHER and other platforms to make and program robots with CircuitPython, MakeCode, and Arduino. Start controlling motors, servos, solenoids. You also get signal pins, capacitive touch sensors, a NeoPixel driver and amplified speaker output. It complements & extends your boards so you can still use all the goodies on the microcontroller, now you have a robotics playground as well.
