Spark Comic #104 - Robot Battle

Hello, Sparky Fans! Welcome back to Spark Comics.

I’ve taken a rather unexpected hiatus from comics since early this year. Lots of things have been happening. I’ve been getting a lot more work lately, I spent several months with a constantly crashing computer that made working on anything impossible and had to get a new computer, my tablet kinda broke and I had to get a new one, I became an artist-in-residence at a local library, been working towards a few other big projects I can’t talk about right now, and Flash has been bugging out so hard on my new computer that it made finishing comics impossible. I had to get a trial for Adobe Animate CC just to get this comic published. In any case, this year has been surprisingly busy, but I’m enjoying it and things are going very well. I can't promise I'll make comics regularly at the moment, but I'll try.

This comic is about the actual real-life giant robot fight that should actually be broadcast today! In 2015, Megabots, a US Robotics firm, challenged their Japanese rival, Suidobashi Heavy Industries, to a giant robot duel that you’d swear came out of an anime. Since then, both countries have been preparing their Gundams Giant Robots for the big fight. Apparently, the battle already happened recently and the Twitch Broadcast is the compiled edited version for the public to see. That being said, I would totally expect Mr Referee from the old Medabots anime to just suddenly appear and start refereeing the fight. In case you’ve forgotten, this dude shows up ANYWHERE there’s a Robattle, somehow, some way, to the point where I’ll be disappointed if he DOESN’T show up to this first epic robattle.

I can’t wait to see the Robattle commence!
