You can now read Atoll lab in order here.

 

comic goes full circle to the little girl at the very beginning of the comic.

I hope you guys have enjoyed this project. I started this comic in April of 2015 during the beginning of my 2nd year of medical school. It has taken a ridiculously long time, one page a weekend in between requests and other things I owed. I started a patreon to showcase these comic arts and It got me through a particularly stressful 3 trimesters. Originally meant to be a mechaphillia porn comic, I advanced the story, and realized pretty quick that I had grown beyond this basic idea. I fell in love with the world I had made up. And so I resolved to just finish my thoughts here, independent of whether or not anyone would take interest. some of you did, and I am very happy.

If any one of you have any questions about the process, the hardships, pitfalls, ect. or just want to know more about the lore of Atoll Lab give me a PM. I’d love to hear from you.

What happens now: I have to go back and edit out some of the adult content panels, make fixes ect. And then after a break id like to advance the Prince Tomcat side story a little bit while I plan and preppare for the next iteration of Atoll Lab, as well as some 3D blender work im interested in learning.

Special thanks to Cerebralerror, Gunnerrott, for turning the shitty dry ass k-rations I call dialogue into something manageable. Good editors/proofreaders are valuable and should be squirreled away when you find them.
shout out to the love of my life Aeroingo, who took time out of his music career to talk me down, and prop me up when I felt like shit some days.

 

Please leave me any questions or comments down at the bottom!

    What in the world did she think she was going to accomplish.. other then get killed.

  2. sora says:

    Wow this page really shock me i didnt think lemarchand can take control over the half machine. In the bio you made about him i thought he limited to only dire machine does this include the morph machine as well. great job on another page and hard work on makeing this.

  3. Ratbat says:

    @Norean: it’s Not Rocket in control of her body. Lemarchand is using his body possession powers . He’s kind of an ass.

  4. Ratbat says:

    @ Sora: Lemarchand can control All the machine subtypes except for other success machines whom are never really sane to begin with. He has tremendous power to do evil through this power, but usually uses it to troll people for entertainment.

  5. ZARA says:

    Oh wow I hope those Cyborg Girls are tough, that’s going to be one hell of an explosion! Awesome new entry into the Comic Ratbat this is so good!

  6. Ratbat says:

    @ ZARA: one more page.. its all downhill from there.

  7. clog says:

    hmmm….vary suspicious Ratbat “its all downhill from there” i guess i’ll figure it out later hmmm i wonder what it means?

  8. Ratbat says:

    @ Clog: well that it to say.. their are about 10 pages left.

  9. clog says:

    @ Ratbat : aaah

  10. jean56f says:

    @ratbat

    NOOOOOOOO :((

  11. clog says:

    @ jean56f : Don’t worry there’s probably more stores “LIKE PRICE TOMCAT! ahm ahm” or something different.

  12. sora says:

    Man that sad they had to die like that i honestly hoped they would win the fight without any lost of lives. This make bit depressed because they sufferd alot during thier time on atoll and i thought they would leave that place and live their life somewhere better.

  13. jean56f says:

    @clog Yeah, but still, it was a good story ;’)

  14. Ratbat says:

    @sora: in the original story everyone actually lived. But at the tone of the comic shifted from a porn story to an actual serious story, I thought given their situation they were set up to fail without weapons or warning that a huge warship monster was coming to eat them. They only won because they had a left over bomb they restored— witch could have also been apart of Lemarchands plan for all they know.

  15. ZARA says:

    Oh Brutal I wasn’t expecting such a in your face response from Lemarchand, what an awesome comic so far Ratbat!

    Reading the other responses and comments, it is hard to kill off characters when you become attached to them but it makes for a more ‘real’ story… And considering the subject material and you still manage to make it feel real is incredibly impressive. I think this has become my favorite online comic and I look forward to every new post. I hope you still enjoy telling these stories and making these comics as we all enjoy reading them.

  16. GabsTheGabs says:

    Impressive, Rocket glasses still fine after all that hehe.

  17. Ratbat says:

    @Zara : sorry for the late response, I’m away from the computer atm but I’m going to update with all the cool stuff I’ve seen at the usaf museum soon. Lemarchand is a cool cat, but also a pain in the ass. At least it wasn’t 6 deaths…

  18. Gingyflame says:

    Holy fuck I remember Bryn! I remember her sex page you made waaaaay back! Ah, good times.

  19. jean56f says:

    I’m hyped for every page 😀

  20. Ratbat says:

    @Gingy hah, you would remember a large Swedish boat lady wouldn’t you? I think Brynhildr was the first boat on human porn I made too. Those 2 were always going to be coming near the end and have an weird little origin story too. For the most part, Lemarchand threatened them to go to Ala Isla to save No-No’s family. He’s a horrible ass even when he tries to do good.

  21. Ratbat says:

    @Jean: back from vacation now! I’ll be making a post about that soon. For now, I’m nearing close to the end of this comic.. I think maybe it’s more wise to make a push to the end then start on anything else.

  22. jean56f says:

    One week and i’m in holiday o/
    you know how many pages left fot his comics ? and for the other one, Prince Tomcat of grumman ?

  23. Ratbat says:

    @Jean : Atoll lab will end around page 72. It’s nearly done. Prince tomcat I think needs more structure as the last 3 pages have felt disjointed and slowed the momentum for me. I may just jump around.

  24. jean56f says:

    @Ratbat No worries take your time 😀

  25. sora says:

    @Ratbat Hey how it been with you i hope you enjoyed on your vaction.Also is this the same female boat that you drew having sex with the same captain as well. Does this mean we will see other cameo like the other pictures you drew. Ps lemarchand is a complete bastred that seriously need to fuck off despite all of his “helping”…..but i still like him as a manipulative character. Can’t wait to see what happens next.

  26. sora says:

    I misspelled bastard my bad.

  27. Gingyflame says:

    Merry Christmas, all!

  28. ZARA says:

    That’s impressive, how you have made a Corvette Ship ‘Cute’ yet still be ready to fight! Not sure if it’s bravery, or the fact she’s starving that she is ready to throw down.

    Question my friend, the Dire’s seem to become attached to Humans and I’ve read some of the background stuff about the linking up and all. But with Bryn’s Captain he ended up with her by accident/random. Is it any human, circumstance, or actual affection that they end up falling in love?

    Thanks and glad you had a good vacation! Merry Christmas and Happy New Year!

  29. Ratbat says:

    @Zara: How fast people get into relationships in this story is definitely a bit exaggerated even with the speed in which I have to tell the story. In the case of Anders, he was picked up curiously on top of the wreck of his old ship by a bewildered and friendly newly awakened ship. He haddent done anything to give her a sense that hes an enemy, Id just say, shes very friendly. But at the time this happened they probably wern’t in a relationship yet. she’s just claiming her prospect earlier 😉

  30. ZARA says:

    @ Ratbat: Ok that is awesome she’s still so naive to the world and is protecting the only friend/companion/traveler she’s pretty much ever known… Well besides that damn voice in her head from ‘You know who!’ Thank you for the fast response, kind of down the Comic will be ending soon but it was great why it lasted! Hope you still do art and all and don’t give it up!

  31. Gingyflame says:

    Happy new year! 2018! Best wishes for y’all!

  32. jean56f says:

    And happy new year @ratbat 😀

  33. Ratbat says:

    @Gingy happy newyear!

  34. Ratbat says:

    @Jean: Happy newyear to you too! -cc

  35. ZARA says:

    Woo hoo update on the Comic 😀 These are some of my favorite parts when allies don’t initially trust each other. Often ends up being a story within a story how trust is built.

  36. Ratbat says:

    @Zara I’ll have to go back and balance the contrast on this page, but I’m glad you like it :3

  37. sora says:

    I wonder at this point of the story when machines awoke and when humanity were affraid of the dire machine is cause other anti machine nation to exist fearing that something like this will happen again. Also nice pic of Dempsey i know he is a male plane but can’t lie on how good looking he is plus that expression on his face is a bit hot. Sorry about that

  38. Gingyflame says:

    To be fair when the comic first came out I, too, thought Dempsey was a chick.

  39. sora says:

    It amazing that no matter what gender they are they can always be looking sexy.

  40. sora says:

    Great pages so far on the comic and it been while since coming to this site been busy and stuff for me not to type up a comment. But i have to say what juan said about how the the humanist just happen to found the island were the the dire machine and the artifact was on does sound a bit to too convenient. Not sure it possible but i think mabye someone in the gen-U-mine company probably leaked informatin about the location.still and interesting point juan bought up since the humanist are bunch of anti technology and crazy group of people. And can you tell me a bit more more about machnes going to space cause that sound really badass.also love me pic whit Dempsey having his tail end resting on a pillow it really cute and funny i love it so much. I’m also really happy for you making this far into the comic that you worked so hard on from whenever you started it.thanks for the for everything you do from drawing to typing stories. im happy that i came across this site.

  41. jean56f says:

    Noooooo it’s the end ; _ ;
    amazing story; Glad I discover this.
    thank Ratbat

  42. ZARA says:

    Wow it’s over 🙁 – I did read what you said and I think the Prince of Tomcat will be a great break giving you something less serious and more ‘Fun’ to write then the Lab story. Whatever you do this was an incredible comic to go through and read, thank you for continuing to the end even through the stressful times.

  43. Ratbat says:

    @ZARA: I think I’m going to update prince tomcat and Calamity equally as they are both a series of short vignettes. I predict calamity will only last about 24 pages. But seriously you flatter me, thanks for tuning in. You have any questions or comments?

  44. Ratbat says:

    @Jean: Dont worry! more to come. <3

  45. Ratbat says:

    @Sora:Trying to catch up on 2 weeks worth of responses now. forgive me I’m an ass lol.

    What Juan says IS too convenient, And Gen-U had all the money in the world to do whatever they wanted in those days, they just never counted on the success machine problem. As for the Space machines, theirs kind of 1.5 stories going on at once, The main story on earth, and their is the small sub story happening up in space. The mining megacorps have colonies set up on the planetary moons and out in space where they process materials to send back to earth. 100 years prior to the discovery of the black shard the world hit a major energy crisis. When it seemed like war was inevitable, fantasy versions of spacex corp and other enterprises saw cash opportunities and were the first to stake a claim in a renewed space Renaissance. These corporations became mega entities as powerful as governments, but they faced stiff competition from one another. It was enough that inter-corp warfare/espionage began behind the watchful eyes of the world. With all that recourse money thrown into R&D they could advance technology much faster then the terrestrial military and even NASA.

    UP in space the space machines have their own little wars, their own little dramas. Everyone lives in a post Gen-U-mine future, but their are more corps up there waiting to pull the strings on earth. The world can only dream of Elysium like technology they must have up there. Juan Boh, and Dempsey of Chino, work for IGNAZ CORP. IGNAZ corp was the original target of Gen-u and they’ve been investigating their dead rival for a while. Mostly because a lot of sentient machines work for Ignaz and they want to understand the nature of the Gen-u-mine experiments before someone they don’t like gets a hold of it.

  46. Ratbat says:

    @Sora: I think it was the eyes, I accidentally make them too feminine sometimes. but real dire machines in the story world- you cant tell their gender unless they speak up, or they have some kind of design on their paint jobs that indicates gender.

  47. ZARA says:

    @Ratbat

    No real questions just enjoying your creativity and glad you can still find joy in doing these comics. My only suggestion is the moment it begins to feel like a chore take a couple days off away from it. I have seen so many talented artist and illustrators close up shop because the became overwhelmed with request and projects they wanted to get done ASAP. Never promise to have anything done by a certain date because then that can feel like a job rather than your hobby. I know I love it when something new pops up here, but you have to remain focused on your own enjoyment so it may continue on and on and on and on 😉

    And again Congrats on the weight loss I’m proud of you, it’s a struggle that very few people are willing to take anymore!

  48. Iron says:

    I took some time today to download the entire comic and read the whole thing through in one shot. Man, I think that really helped my enjoyment of it; it’s a lot better-paced than I originally thought, and it helped me connect some plot threads I missed just reading it piecemeal. So glad to see it in it’s entirety, Ratbat!

  49. Ratbat says:

    @Iron I think I should tell. Darker story next time. Maybe from the human perspective where these machines are out of control death machines eh? Im so glad you enjoy it though 😉
