The Automata Archive | The Adverts

"From March 17th 1983 to April 28th 1985, Automata was given free range with the back page of Popular Computing Weekly. The first few crappy pages were drawn by whoever was around at the time, usually me, but then Robin Evans took over to produce the UK computer industry's first major cartoon strip. Here some of those bizarre rear-ends as a reminder of just how anarchic things were back then, and what happened when the good times stopped rolling. I still can't believe we got away with it."
