A sneaky preview from issue 2 of Stephensons Robot.
Here we see Brunel and Stephenson visiting Charles Babbage and his difference engine.
Babbage wasnt just the Grandaddy of computing he was also a pioneer in the battle against noise pollution which led local organ grinders to gather outside his property with the express intention of pissing him off, hence the scene where he clouts that chappy round the head with part of his library.
Bottom panel features Stephenson trying out a remote viewing device.
