One key reason for releasing The Last Mechanical Monster as a work-in-progress webcomic is to get readers’ feedback. Please feel free to share your thoughts via the comments on each page.

The Oatmeal
by Matthew Inman
The Oatmeal's real name is Matthew and he lives in Seattle, Washington. He subsists on a steady diet of crickets and whiskey. He enjoys long walks on the beach, gravity, and breathing heavily through his mouth. His dislikes include scurvy, typhoons, and tapeworm medication.
