We live in a world where resources grow thin, ice caps melt by each year, and the looming shadow of artificial intelligence becomes more science than fiction at each advancement. This comic series interprets a survival story in the face of what seems like all doom and gloom for humanity. However, this is not a story about mankind, but the legacy of what humans may leave behind them: mounts of trash – and perhaps some artificial intelligence.


Here, it is in the most unlikely form of a robotic teddy bear originally constructed as a toy for children. However do not let the cute exterior fool you. This teddy bear, named Zero, has a heightened artificial intelligence and a robust robotic endoskeleton which allows him to upgrade, teach himself and prepare for any situation using anything at his disposal to survive.


Ultimately, the character of Zero as a representation of how humans grow from children and collection of scars of all forms on their way to adulthood – only to become stronger albeit more jaded and cynical as a consequence. Likewise, Zero has re-stitched himself up but in the process he has upgraded himself and grown more resilient.

In this second issue of Energy Quest we follow a now homeless Zero, the mechanical teddy bear, scavenging yet again for batteries after a brutal attack from earth’s dominant species - A hostile artificial intelligence – Hive Now


The Hive have a powerful weapon at their disposal: a corrupted army of electronics and bots left from the age of humans, dispatched as avatars and foot soldiers of the Hive with a single mission – to pursue and corrupt the raggedy bear until there is only one formidable intelligent being left on the planet – the singular minded Hive itself…
