Peter is a devious, manipulative, power-mad geek with an Adonis face half-hidden by hair. Arnold is a relentlessly rational geek who regards his beloved Jill’s complete indifference to him as a logic puzzle to be solved. Jill, a greedy geek, is not unfeeling: she loves all dollars equally. Leila is our moral geek, whose socially responsible impulses evaporate around Peter on account of his looks. And Derek is the grumpy, practical, robot tech geek who has to deal with them. They’re the Raw Materials, in hot and geeky pursuit of whatever it is they pursue. The first few strips appeared at Discovery Tech (though they’re gone now), before moving to Simple-Talk, where you can find a full archive of nearly two years’ worth. [Warning! The first four are advertisements for a mobile product. The rest are in a persuasion-free zone.] The strips also appeared on SQLServerCentral, but you’ll have to register to see ’em there.
