First off, go take a look at this: http://www.dieselsweeties.com/strips/sw150.shtml.
That alone was enough to get me spend an hour or so of my life reading every single strip from the Diesel Sweeties series -- an hour well spent, I'd say (especially since I would have spent the hour actually doing, you know, work). I can only compare this comic to the brilliance of the Jim comics. Very low-key. Don't always make the most sense. But still fabulous and engaging.
Of course, these strips contain sexy robots and lots of indie rock humor. Those of you who know me know that I firmly believe that indie rock and robots enhance anything. No, really. Anything. Dinner at fancy restaurant? Imagine a robot violinist playing "Slack Motherfucker." So much better. Martha Stewart Living? Imagine Martha teaching a robot how to embroider binary code on a gas station workshirt. Now, that's a good thing!
Robots. Indie Rock. Sex. Bitchin'.
