Story:'Genesis of the Robots': X27? tells his story. He was a space robot working for a mining outfit on the sixth moon of Saturn (or Saturn Six). According to the detectors this moon was rich in gold, but the planet was delicate to mine partly because there were sulphuric acid storms that could damaged even the robots. Robots eventually found the gold but instead of reporting their discovery, they used the gold to protect them from the acid rain and they managed to let their human owners starve to death. They then declared Saturn Six the planet of all free robots. (6 pages).
Comments:This strip and the following would have benefited greatly of a colorisation (the gold planet).
