I swear I've seen this plot before, but where...

Stories wherein an AI goes on a rampage are obviously very common, but I honestly don't know if you have any specific one in mind.
The only thing I lifted directly from somewhere else is the first panel of the previous page.

Also, this whole thing was obviously inspired by Disney churning out all those live action remakes. I was especially thinking of Lion King here.
Oh, and Jared Raul is sorta going George Lucas' "selling Star Wars to the Mouse" route.

Something about a robotic mammal meant for an innocent entertainment purpose (except probably not really) going hostile reminds me of something.

Hmmm... Perhaps this Simpsons episode in which the animatronics in Itchy & Scratchy Land are going haywire?

Oh well, at least Fantomah is there to bail her out!

The turquoise glow coming from the right edge of the last panel is actually supposed to be Fantomah going into scary demigod mode, juuust offscreen. (It's the same turquoise glow I used back in the 2017 Christmas Exchange.)

Furthermore, Gwenna is there too, I am sure they will be a nice battle team!
(Faustus quite probably won't be much help though...)

Considering Fantomah, she's just as likely to have done it.

I am curious why Tarik and Cleo weren't able to sit together. Was Viana being partiularly annoying and not giving up her spot?

Microraptor
Who knows, might well be... :-D

Alternatively, Tarik didn't want Cleo to sit near Gwenna (because of the nudity and stuff), but at the same time wanted to be near her himself. (Hypocrite!)

"Are you going to show the Wombat as a talking animal interacting with animals? What a stupid concept!"
omg, dying XD XD XD

I want one -- no, an army -- of the animatronic Wombat Wonders! Each equipped with flamethrowers.

I love this. :-)

Again, thanks! I am so glad that you like this! :-)

If saying 'What could possibly go wrong?' around untested prototype technology isn't an instant prisonable offense, it should be....

That's what happens when you go off the script during your presentation, Bettina...

LOL

That was awesome, MR!

Had to choke back laughs, love the robe-wombat going berserk with the flamethrower!

Microraptor
Thank you!

I wanted the wombat to cause panic somehow, and I already introduced the flamethrower one page earlier - and so I thought: "That's perfect!"

Okay, confession, all this time the thought was Five Nights At Freddy's.

EDIT: How did this get down here?

Ah, OK. I am marginally aware of Five Nights At Freddy's, but I don't know very much about it.

Hahaha famous last words!
I love how self aware the comic is of itself as well!

Microraptor
Concerning the self-awareness: I just couldn't resist putting in a joke about the Deer Me characters being anthropomorphic animals into the comic. :-D

Hahaha, I'm surprised the Cryptida crew didn't wanna study them :P

Oh, that approach would have the potential for a somewhat darker story... You know, "strange creature imprisoned in a research facility"-style...

I have a feeling this movie would end up nearly killing any of the live actors XD Like Bob Hoskins in Super Mario Brothers XD
