With a story that explores WhatMeasureIsANonHuman, the [[WhatIsThisThingYouCallLove nature of love]], whether or not love is any less real if it's programmed (into a human OR a robot), and a very, ''very'', [[GainaxEnding weird ending]], Fall Out Toy Works manages to be nothing (yet everything) one would expect from a comic book based on FallOutBoy. Much like ''Theatre/MyFairLady'' [[XMeetsY meets]] ''Film/BladeRunner'', but [[MindScrew weirder]].

* AllThereInTheManual: A good portion of background info merely glossed over in the comic (Baron's rise to power, the Toymaker's previous involvement in an anti-Baron smuggling operation/art collective, the Second Industrial Revolution, etc.) was mentioned on the comic's minisite. The section the information was included on is [[LostForever has been broken for a matter of years]]. [[http://hypebeast.com/2009/8/fall-out-toy-works-issue-1 A portion of the info on the minisite]] was made available in a promotional article, but it only focuses on the Second Industrial Revolution and Baron's rise to power.

After a rough start, the robot [[{{Fembot}} Tiffany]] (named after an old song called [[FallOutBoy "Tiffany Blews"]]) is activated. She needs to experience life in order for her programming to function properly. Baron, being the dominating figure that he is, won't be having any of that. Tiffany is implanted with other people's memories, averaged out to maintain a balanced. On top of the Toymaker dealing with a failing factory and a robot going through an existential crisis living with a man she might not even want to love comes another complication...[[PygmalionPlot The Toymaker has fallen in love with his creation]]. She might just feel the same. With Tiffany caught in the middle of the Toymaker and the Baron, who ''won't'' come out worse for wear?
