Zuda March: Bernie’s BOT

It’s the near future, and robots have become part of everyday life. But society isn’t the utopia (or dystopia) that many have predicted. The haves and have-nots still exist, and the Meckron family fits squarely in the latter category. A blue-collar factory worker, Roger Meckron works hard to support himself and his 10-year-old daughter, Bernadette (Bernie), in an apartment on the wrong side of the tracks. Elizabeth Meckron, Roger’s wife and Bernie’s mom, left the family more than year ago under mysterious circumstances.
Bernie is a bright, inquisitive kid but socially awkward. She much prefers the company of robots over humans. Because she can’t afford to buy one, Bernie decides to build a robotic companion out of spare parts that her father sneaks out of his factory. Using a core “engine” left by her now-absent mother, Bernie soon completes her creation — a gangly robot named Thursday.
But questions remain: Can Thursday be trusted? What happened to Bernie’s mom? And who (or what) is Tawros?

This looks as if it has come straight out of 2000AD with leanings from the Beano/Dandy – I am slightly intrigued to where it will go, but not enough to follow it. Although the first page is an excellent idea to get people to stick with it.
The art is retro in a good way and doesn’t get in the way of the story.
