 - Lew Stringer -

Question:  I wondered if the 'Forgotten Robots' strip was a satire on the 'Rudiments of Wisdom' strip, written and drawn by the eccentric Tim Hunkin? I also thought I spotted the influence of Otto Messmer at work, in the drawing of the steam age robot? All great stuff!

Lew:  Hi Paul, No, I've never heard of Tim Hunkin's work. The robot was based on Stephenson's Rocket, - but with legs. :) Best, Lew
