ASTRO BOY by Ken House
I'm really glad I got to draw Astro Boy this week. For me his costume is basically perfect. The pick also got me to rewatch a two-parter episode from 1980, which was pretty great.
Astro's not afraid to do some robot punchin' but he'd rather extend a hand in friendship, because robot's are people too, only people whose deaths are not quite as big of a deal. It's easy to see why it was such fertile ground for Pluto, which I confess to not having read, though it's been at the top of my list for ages.
