I am a fan of several
web comics. One of my favorites is FreeFall.
It's mostly about an incompetant-to-the-point-of-lovability con
man named Sam and an honest-to-a-fault engineer named Florence.
Most of the fun is Sam's evil thought process trying to comprhend
Florence's honest motives. It's somewhat reminescent of L. Ron
Hubbard 's Mission Earth and unfortunately of some power-hungry
people I know in the real world.
Here Florence meets
up with Helix, Sam's side-kick robot.
