One of the toughest parts of producing a long-form serial comic is avoiding the inevitable burnout that comes with publishing 15+ pages week after week. While the job is too much fun to ever say it’s a ‘grind’, there is a certain amount of creative and deadline pressure that comes with the territory, and if precautions aren’t taken writers and artists can find themselves getting burned out rather easily.
So what are my suggestions? Two words: Vacation and variety.
I feel it is extremely important to make sure you give yourself the opportunity to take some time off from your work every now and then. I generally spend anywhere from three to f
I was wondering if you'd introduce a more powerful female counterparts to finister ones who are just as evil and also human who can best him from time to time? as him winning all the time is starting to feel kinda repetitive.
Well, “Finister” is not a Metrobay character. That is the name of the company’s co-owner and artist. Are you talking about Dr. Twisted, or someone else?
Dear Metro I have enjoyed your comics for quite some time and find them amusing and am impressed by the quality work you make but I have notice that you use the glowing green eye and robotization a lot for most of your stories and I've been wondering if you would mind including spiral eyes & hypnowheels/screens more often in your work?
Thank you! I’m sure we could use those types of effects more often. We just need to figure out the right opportunity. Thanks for the suggestion!

Most of you who have read my work know that most of my comics tend to specialize in the ‘sexy robot’ fetish, specifically the transformation of a human woman into an obedient robot. But why? What is it about this particular fetish that entices me?
The short answer is… I don’t know. There’s just something about it that is difficult to explain. The long answer is… well, how much time do you have?
My specific fetish usually (but not always) involves the transformation of a human female into an obedient robot or cyborg. To that end, there are several important components that make up the fantasy for me. They are, in no particular order:
A promo page for “Employee Orientation”, an upcoming Metrobay Comix story written by Doctor Robo and illustrated by WikkidLester.
In this story, Metrobay’s Clarke Media has been purchased by a shadowy and secretive corporation. Their first order of business is to ensure loyalty and obedience among the employees - by any means necessary!
Part of the fun of running a website like MetrobayComix.com is the feedback we receive from members and guests alike. Whether it’s here at DeviantART, on our messageboard, on social media, or anywhere else, it truly is a privilege to get to interact with people who enjoy our work.
I must admit that we’re very lucky. The vast majority of the feedback we receive is positive, and even when someone has some criticism for us it is typically offered in a very enthusiastic and constructive manner. That isn’t always the case elsewhere. I’m sure each of you has seen how ugly it can get in the comments section of just about any mass media website, whe
Tonight we published the final chapter of “Cyberstar and Frandroid” at MetrobayComix.com. Here’s a look at the cover page, if you’re interested: http://metrobay.eroticillusions.com/free/freegal/index.php/Covers-Gallery/Cyberstar-and-Frandroid-cover-7
I always have mixed feelings when a story ends. On one hand it’s nice to put a bow on something I’ve been working on for a while, and get ready to start something new. On the other hand, I put a lot of time and thought into each and every chapter, so to see a story conclude always leaves me wondering if there was any additional excitement I could have wrung out of the pages before putting the st
My partner @finister and I had a long instant message discussion this evening about the importance of continuity in a shared fictional universe like Metrobay.
This comes up every now and then - someone on our staff will have concerns about whether a story they are working on fits in with the history established in previously published stories, or whether it could affect future storylines. As more artists and writers contribute to our site, the overall Metrobay continuity grows faster than we ever thought possible when we started it more then ten years ago. So we have had to come to a consensus about just how strict we want our continuity to
any chance or future plans for Metrobot?
If you’re talking about the ‘brainwashed into thinking she’s a robot’ version of Ms. Metrobay, then yes. I’m sure we’ll be seeing that storyline again down the road. If not, then can you please elaborate?
hey doc, what ever happened to femina machinae?
Like most comics publishers, mainstream or otherwise, we have a regular publication schedule at MetrobayComix.com. We update our subscription-based members gallery four days per week, and our free gallery typically once or twice per month. We take that schedule very seriously, and through we do occasionally have a delay that pushes an update back a day or two we still will religiously post four updates per week, every week.
My stories typically post on Sundays. As I write this blog, my friend and collaborator @Trishbot is working on the finished pages for this week’s edition of “The Omega Mystery”. Trishbot is one of the best comics postwork

I’ve decided to start a semi-regular journal where I discuss my work on the MetrobayComix.com website that I co-own with my friend and business partner @finister. I don’t know how often I’ll update, or what form this will eventually take, but I figure it will be a fun way to talk about the process behind creating adult fetish comix and running an erotic comix website.
