Oh goodness, this scene... it came completely out of nowhere for me and I had to stop reading for a few minutes to let it sink in. Gesicht was such a wonderful character and just when things started to look up... this. Such a beautiful depiction of the scene.
Wow...I love the textures in this, and while at first I was like, "But he's a robot! He can't bleed!" I realized that those were the petals. BRILLIANT. This was an incredibly powerful scene (Well, Pluto really is a tour-de-force, with Powerful scenes coming one after the other with near-perfect timing), and the fact that I didn't see it coming even when I'd already read the original Astro Boy story made it even more tragic. I kept thinking, "They can't Possibly kill off Gesicht...." and then–
On a somewhat unrelated note, the way you drew him with the red and all reminds me of the scenes in 20th Century Boys where the people infected with the virus keel over...just saying.
