I'm a huge Dr Who fan. So I sat last night to watch the latest episode (season 6, ep 8, "Let's kill Hitler" ) and I was amused to see a HUGE similarity with a short story called "Jared" I did for Dark Horse Presents a while back. Specifically the "human-looking robot piloted by tiny crew" bit*.
You can read the story here to see for yourselves. Just scroll down and in "BACK ISSUES" click Issue #7. Please excuse the artwork, it was years ago.
*(Yeah, I know it very well may be a coincidence but it's funny. Let me have my fun :P)
