SUB-MACHINE GUN is the simplest thing in the world.  A collection of screenshots of bad films with bad subtitles.

There’s something about the way interesting comics work, in them: the juxtaposition of image and text in discordant, dissociative ways.  Also they just make me smile.  But I love the strangeness of these little captures, and they way they make me think for a moment.  Also, it turns out your robot will live.
