Comic does not seem to show anymore, just the first poast of 2017 seems to do so.
I have the same impression. What’s up?
That’s waht I call a cliff hanger. Just finished reading the comic from the beginning again.
following since Page 4
Greast work, wil it be printed some day?
Thank you! yes maybe but first I want to finish it, before I start worrying about that part 🙂
You do great work. This could be used for a new movie
Do you sell print edition of the comic?
there’s a pdf of the first 187 pages in my ArtStation store, just 1 dollar, but that’s probably not what you meant.
Yes, some day when it’s all done I will want to print it, I’ll do my best to make it happen 🙂
I just discovered this comic about nine hours ago, and binge-read, cover to current page, in one sitting. When my wife gets mad at me for not sleeping, I’m siccing her on you!
When you decide to go forward with the hard copy, will you use a Kickstarter? I would like to get in on that.
And who doesn’t like the “worthless Tesla” line?
Oh damn! What a burn! Shots fired! LOL (And totally true!)
Hey, just found and caught up on the comic- Do you have an RSS feed so I can see when it updates?
I never used those things myself so I’m not sure how it works, it’s not helpful that the WP interface is so user-unfriendly to comics authors that don’t know anything beyond HTML (it’s fragile and when it breaks it’s impossible for me to fix I have to get outside help every time). So I’m reluctant to touch any settings around here anymore. I thought I did add RSS years ago, but then there was a break and now I don’t know… I guess it’s not working anymore. Sorry, I’ll try to research it.
Meanwhile, just assume a rate of roughly 2 pages per month. Sorry it’s so slow, I put a lot of work into the art 🙂

Great work! For the Chinese translation of the wanted poster, I think it might be more accurate if you use:
“通缉， 不论死活” for the
“wanted dead or alive” and
“杀手机器人” for the
Thank you! 🙂
Love this comic! Keep it coming!
Just caught up with the whole story today, loved every page, excellent story & art. More please.
Hey! Really stunning work! Is there a way to buy a higher resolution version of this?
on my Patreon I give members 2 full resolution Photoshop files with all the layers, each month (minimum is 1$ a month), I think right now we’re on #50 something… https://www.patreon.com/Stahlberg
I do plan to try a KickStarter to print this some day, maybe when I reach #120 or so.
Just discovered this today and read every page. Any way to get an RSS feed so I don’t miss the updates?
not sure, I think I had it working before, but then WP updated and I had to change theme… I’m not good with WP sorry…
Seems to depend on the puzzling file structure that an RSS isn’t easy to establish.
will do somehow if you click on “open Android Blues”, but I did not manage to display the latest (unread) updates.
That’s a fairly terrible security feature, if we’re being perfectly honest.
I agree, but the way they reason is, it’s better to have one android too many destroyed, than to gamble that independent androids won’t somehow find a good reason to get rid of all humans… and from the clients’ point of view they don’t lose that much, as there’s insurance, which if they pay a little bit extra the company will reimburse them with a new android if the old one is lost due to (accidental) isolation.
Truly impressive art and layouts! The storyline is intriguing as well. Sexbots may very well become the wave of the future. Then. of course, there will be those who wish to grant them their independence. You can bet there will be resistance to that like there was to ending slavery and racial integration.
No updates since August. Looking forward to new pages.
enjoyed the story so far are you going to post more here?
Yes I will, it’s just slowed down a lot recently,
among other things I’ve found steemit.com, where I can post my art and make money, as opposed to Facebook, Instagram, DeviantArt and ArtStation 🙂
I have signed up on steemit lately. What’s your name there, I’d like to follow you 😉
cool see you there! 🙂
job was very hard in march and april, so i found only now the time to login on steemit -.-
so i followed now, what else can be done there? 🙂
You can post on your own blog, and earn crypto money, which is possible to exchange for other crypto or cash. Or you can just explore and read other peoples’ blogs. It’s fun, I treat it like a long term game 🙂
lol he’s committed
Assuming she can convince the shut-in this will be her first truly non-hostile contact. Gotta wonder how Lisa is gong to play this exactly, what with the whole intimacy thing going on. You get the feeling she isn’t exactly down with selling herself for safety but desperate times…
I’m curious, is the android connecting wirelessly through a built-in device or did she steal some equipment? Just curious since Maddie needed stuff to surf.
I’m glad you asked, I realize now I glossed over this part of the story. Perhaps I should return to it and add a page.
I was thinking she’s in a kind of “info kiosk”, a public service somewhat like a public bathroom, if someone needs information and privacy it’s there. Possibly you’d have to pay a minor amount like in a fancier bathroom, in that case Lisa probably had some way of getting around that. Or maybe she even had a few coins she pilfered. Not sure.
What’s meant with ‘stop winging’ ?
oh, I misspelled it. It’s supposed to be “whinging”, I’ll fix it thanks
Hey, have you been meddliy with the space-time continuum again? How did Lisa and Elvis get into this photojournalism shot from a couple of days ago?
(For your amusement only, not intended as a serious comment! But I look forward to seeing an “artist’s impression” of it turn up on the strip ).
woh that’s trippy 🙂
Comic is not loading properly, last couple of days. COMIC link on home page goes nowhere. What has been changed?
yes sorry, I clicked on 1 update too many. Little did I know it would screw everything up. Thanks
working on fix, meanwhile see the comic here:
I been following this for quite a while and I am loving its tone and pace, very chilled 🙂 ill be dropping in for more
Great art…Seriously, top notch!
In other news, I’ve recently been laid off, so for a little while I have to focus on getting a new job, which means this comic will be on hiatus for a week or two. Sorry about that. 🙂
Any news about when this brilliant story might resume? Hope all is well in any case!
Yes sorry I was moving, I still am but now at least I have my family and my cats in our new apartment, next comes my desk and chair so I can resume working at home. 🙂 I hope to be able to resume work this week.
Steven, have you thought of making like a Kickstarter or something? I’d love to buy this comic or make a donation, or something. I love the story so far! It’s so captivating.
Thanks, I’ve thought about it, and also about Patreon.com. I will do something like that, soon, but I would like to get rid of another obligation I have on my spare time first. Then I can focus even more on this project.
Greetings Mr. Stahlberg,
My name is John Downing. I am the author of a book entitled Peace & Justice that was released back in 05. However, recently I just finished another work, which is a collection of short stories and poems. The reason I’m contacting you is because a few years ago I came across some artwork you had created of a stunning redhead with short hair in a wet suit. Its unzipped and she has a tattoo below her navel. It is one of my all time favorites by you and I was curious to know if I could have your permission to use it as a cover for my next book. I know you’re most likely busy, so if you could just email me back at your earliest convenience that would be awesome. Thank you and I hope to hear from you soon.
Thanks! As far as I’m concerned you have my permission, but the copyright I think belongs to NCSoft, it’s Sarah Morrison from the game Tabula Rasa, they commissioned me. The game is long dead, so they may be willing to grant you permission for free, I’m not even sure if NCSoft exists anymore. 🙂
I know this is long overdue, but thank you, thank you for giving me permission. I got tied up in the promotions for my book last year so I became fairly busy after I emailed you. However, I am in the middle of working on my third book and it would be great to use Sarah Morrison for the cover. 🙂
You can email me at stahlber at yahoo dot com, Sarah was designed by the company that made Tabula Rasa, it’s been defunct for I don’t know about ten years now? But I’m not sure that releases the copyright to me.
Wow, I’ve always wanted to see this story realized. This is awesome. I’ve been waiting since I read the first draft of Android Blues back in 1999. Just read to page 45 to get caught up. Keep the great work up.
Hello! I recently found this comic and greatly enjoyed it so far. Does it still update or has it been abandon?
Thank you! Yes it’s still alive. I always finish what I start! 🙂 It’s just slow, sorry, mostly because my time is limited.
I now have page 50 nearly done, and 51 and 52 more than halfway done.
Dear Steven: I’ve followed your excellent work for some time on the CG Society site. You are a master of technique, composition, subject matter, color… your art lifts me. I would love to buy a print of Angel Tears (I’ve also seen it called Angel’s Lament, I believe) and The King’s Fairy Catcher, but I can’t find them. Can you help?
All the best to you.
Email me at stahlber at yahoo dot com, (no G),
and I will send the largest file I have to you so you can print it yourself. (But I don’t have internet at home until the 24th, I just moved again)
Oh, thank you! I will…
I so appreciate your response, Steven.
You are one of the most impressive artists of this time! Inspired by Jean Giraud maybe? Good luck to you!
I like a lot Your painting !
Please take my e -mail address private !
trying a new art style for those two panels? 😀
Hi, your comment ended up on the “About” page of my site, so I’m not sure which panels you mean, but yeah I do change the style, sometimes it’s on purpose and sometimes not 🙂
whoops — referred to the “cartoonish” style on the last page 🙂 i thought it fitted well.
