To those whose countries grace them with a holiday on September first (I’m among them), have a happy Labour Day! Get out and enjoy the last sunshine and good times of summer. The last? Yes. THE VERY LAST. GO GO GO.

But if you’re fearful of the great outdoors — or, you know, sunshine — I recommend kicking back with a cold drink and Ben Hatke’s robot comics, which are soon to be collected into a book. Hatke, also the creator of Zita the Spacegirl, does effortlessly cute comics, sweet and true in the way that the best kids comics are.

And remember, love your labour, because soon all of it will be outsourced to robots!
