TIGER ROBOTS!

I’ve been putting the book together and these guys are too good to not share. It’s a collaborative project I’ve been doing with my 4 year old son. One day he was playing and he ran over to me and held out an abstract sculpture made out of LEGO and said, “this is Fire Tiger Robot’s spaceship. He lives in a cave and shoots aliens.”

What?!

I asked him to tell me more about Fire Tiger Robot and that’s when I found out about Freeze Tiger Robot, Rock Tiger Robot and Laser Tiger Robot. The descriptions were detailed and full of sound effects. He then said, “Hey dad, can you draw me a Fire Tiger Robot?”

Heck yes, son.

Over the next few days and weeks we would carve out a little time to sit together in my studio and draw Tiger Robots. He’d describe them as I drew. He’d point out that I drew something wrong so I’d have to fix it. A few things I would push back on and try to convince him it was cooler this way. Eventually we settled on these designs.

Oh, and his little sister wanted in on this, so he added Flower Tiger Robot just for her.

In Life in Reverse, Chapter 12 when Loki and Clint are talking (“No,” Barton said, after a moment. “Not that either.” He straightened, bearing shifting slightly to something not quite wary. “Agent Romanov likes you.” Loki blinked, and could not quite keep his, “She does?” as bland as he wanted it to be. “Hm,” Barton said, and crossed his arms, still watching Loki narrowly. “Yeah. Seems like.”) How did that conversation between Nat and Clint go down?

“So I met your new friend,” Natasha said, sitting cross-legged on Clint’s couch and inspecting the Scrabble board. She was winning, of-fucking-course. Clint didn’t know why he still bothered.

“New friend?” He asked, frowning at his letters. “Didn’t know I had one of those.”

“Mm-hm,” Natasha said. “Tall, dark, weird.”

“Oh,” Clint said. “Him.

Finished Horizon Robot Dinosaurs, complete with all the trophies. I ended up enjoying the SF story elements a lot more than I anticipated – I think I assumed going into it that the story would be a bit of a handwave, a conceit to give you the justification for the robot fauna and maybe not a lot else. Turns out I was joyfully wrong. 

I loved all the characters so much. They make an impression despite not getting a lot of individual screentime. You immediately get a sense of where they came from (usually from their clothes) and what they want. I loved how many of them were women. All kinds of women doing all kinds of things, big parts and small parts. It was wonderful.

It’s going to end up one of my all-time favorites, I think.

Spoiler territory:
