I like how the drone's eye follows Milt. Interesting.

Don't care, he still did it.
I love the "just following orders" that Tat has up.. ah the thing that have happened from men "just following orders."

I wonder how the spider drone unwinds its web... spiders eject silk from spinnerets in their hind end and then place it using their hind legs. Spider drone appears to produce silk out of its apex and has legs along its base. That would make for awkward web-making.

Milton, you have willfully taken an innocent life in fear.

But perhaps there are lives you can save.

If anyone is going to take this and start sympathizing, they're missing the entire point and sarcasm of this strip.

Don't know the difference between right & wrong: psychopath
Knowing the difference, but not caring: sociopath

Knowing, and caring, but lacking the backbone to stand up to evil: Milton.

And then Milton leave the evil factory, gather parts of his victim, rebuild her with free will. BAM instant forgiveness.

Ooooooor not.

It's not a forgone conclusion that Milt is wracked with guilt, precisely; I choose to interpret this outburst as rage at being forced to break his new favourite toy (plus some leftover fear of Weapon F going rogue and "killing all men"). It's too soon to call him a sympathetic character; Tat has made it very clear that Milton is NOT one of the good guys.

Be interesting to see how Milton changes, mind.

Mmmm... not really, no. Milton's always been kind of neutral for me. This recent thing hasn't really changed it much. He destroyed the killbot because he believed she was going to turn into the same sort of creature that our rogue fembot did, except she's significantly more heavily armed and dangerous. Certainly he also hoped to destroy the rogue, but from his perspective he couldn't dare let the killbot go rogue. The danger of letting her go on a man-hunting spree dwarfs anything we've seen.

Of course, in the end that's still a selfish reason: he wants to stop it not to protect people, but because the devil will have his head (or worse) if there's more fembot trouble. And he did still kill the killbot, not once having any concern for the fact that he'd created something capable of independent thought, and thus no concern for the fact that he was killing someone who was alive.

Anyway. Milton never comes off as outright evil as some of the devil-folk, but he also hasn't shown any of the signs of good that some of them have. His focuses seem to be self-preservation (whenever the devil gets mad at him), and working with machines (at all other times). So... nope. I can't say I really sympathize with him.

There might be a chance for him to start NOT being a terrible person in the wake of this.

But he's a terrible person.

With the intention of reporting back to its boss if he shows signs of developing a conscience, perhaps?

I foresee some of those spider-drones being crushed beneath Xanthe's Bigwheel.
