I thought it looked like a Hermes Baby myself.Hey remember this?http://manualentry.blogspot.com/2010/10/story-idea.html
Ha! Yeah that storyline is an oldy but a goody. See also "The Word Processor of the Gods" by Stephen King.
I was thinking an Olivetti just from the green color. But it lacked the red key, so I s'pose not.
In the second picture, I also thought a bit of a Hermes Baby, later, it resembled of an early Hermes Media. But it isn't really one of them.
Mmm, scratches head. That's a tough competition!
That poor typewriter, ending up in the water! I can only image how stuck the typebars must be now...No idea what model it could be; although at times it reminded me of a plastic Japanese-made Silver Reed.I wish I could type myself into some of my childhood favorites... but I suppose that would be a whole other sort of plagiarism!
Very interesting, haven't seen this comicbook before.
I love that last line. As for the story, the words that come to mind are: amusing, formulaic and stultifying.Great comic and fun project...
