Webcomic: Warbot In Accounting
A true killing machine.Warbot In Accounting
is a webcomic written by Brian Clevinger
and drawn by Zack Finfrock. It takes place in a world where warbots, large unmanned war machines with human-like artificial intelligence, were created by the U.S. military. However, in their first ever use, they were so effective that they were immediately declared weapons of mass destruction and protesters world-wide demanded they be disarmed. The U.S. military complies, but is then protested by A.I. rights groups who want the warbots to be rehabilitated and released into the civilian workforce.
This brings us to the life of X-17, the titular Warbot who works for the Weyland Accounting Firm. He tries in every episode to fit into his new life, and repeatedly fails due to his lack of speech, hands, and general knowledge of human behavior.
The creators have basically admitted that they're trying
to make each update more depressing than the last
. They've also said that they'll "continue making [it] until the Internet cries out for us to stop"
