The Intrepid Girlbot is an unusual webcomic; it’s mostly wordless, has a simple story and features a cyborg raccoon. The art is clear, the limited colour pallet makes the images pop and the whole work is delightful. Diana Nock describes the comic as “basically a silent Pinocchio story about a robot trying to be a little girl” and has spun a simple concept into a magnificent comic.
“Girlbot lives in a big house in a world with no people, just forest critters and other robots. But she’s unique, and therefore, alone. She’s on a constant quest to be a “good girl,” whatever that really means. Despite living with a few other robotic companions, she’s still isolated and reaches out to others in her own awkward way.
Her latest attempts have been to make a friend out of an unfortunate raccoon she accidentally abducted, tortured, and killed. She fixed her up, which resulted in the raccoon — called Raccoon #1 — becoming half-robot herself: a cyborg.”
