Woot Labs mixes super villain action into a funny web comic style that makes for an enjoyable read. The story stars a twenty two year old mad scientist who goes by the alias Square Woot. She is “mother” to two kids she created. Her son Rusty is a robot, and her daughter Wendy is a lizard girl. With their hulking monster of a pet CatBot, and cute little Penguin named Pengi, they make quite a team as well as a family!
Of course their exploits draw the attention of super heroes that try to foil their plans such as Riot Girl, a 200 foot tall woman, and an acrobatic gamer named Actions Per Minute. The story swaps between their adventures both in being villains, and their personal lives at home as well. This keeps things interesting as we get to learn more about the characters true selves.
Square Woot is instantly likeable and works well as a central character. While she is a villain, she is still a person too and series creator diceknight does a wonderful job keeping things fresh. Even the introduction of each character to Actions Per Minute is fun and snappy. The style and color pallet suit the series well and help it stand out.
This is an enjoyable read and definitely worth a go. It has solid progression and adds new content in a comfortable and gradual manner that keeps things interesting. The characters are fun and playful making this a light hearted and comical adventure. Gamers will also find some fun references along the way as well.

Lastly, I enjoyed Woot Labs so much that I put together a piece of fan art after reading the Riot Girl issue. I tried to keep a similar style to the series. You can enjoy that below!
