Let’s Get Our Story Started
The first page of issue number eight establishes a few things.
Firstly, the blind, depressed kid from the cover is named Timmy, and he is indeed blind and depressed (also, his friends may be dicks)
Platinum is kind of an attention whore.
“Oh Doc, there’s someone not flocking to see us. Let’s stop and harangue him!”
Then again, the Metal Men wouldn’t be running late if Doc wasn’t gliding along on ground level.
Lastly, but most importantly…
…we’ve got to establish the “Doc wishes he’s never built that stinky, icky girl robot” dynamic.
Just like my daddy said about me!
