    Major Spoilers - Stephen Schleicher Mar 28, 2012

    You know the routine; a new Atomic Robo book arrives on the store shelves and Stephen goes on and on about why you should be reading the series. The broken record has been running since 2007, yet I'm still surprised when someone emails me to let me know they finally picked up the book after hearing or reading my words go on at length. And the reaction is always the same, "Finally picked up Atomic Robo after all your praise, I'm glad I did, this is fantastic!" So whether you believe me know, or believe me later, Atomic Robo is a property that is so special, so unique in its storytelling and approach to science, technology, and adventure, that I'm sure it will be around 50 years from now. Atomic Robo Presents Real Science Adventures is icing on the cake as it means even more Robo is in our lives. Pick up the book, and if you don't know what is going on, go and buy all the previous volumes, you'll be thanking me later. Read Full Review

    Newsarama - Aaron Duran Mar 28, 2012

    As anthologies go, Atomic Robo Presents: Real Science Adventures #1 is a strong debut from the crew at Red 5 and I hope to see more. While they weren't all total home runs, this is still a great title to read, for both new and old fans of Atomic Robo. Read Full Review

    Newsarama - Rob McMonigal Apr 2, 2012

    Real Science Adventures #1 is a fun anthology with a few minor flaws that captures the feel of the pulp magazines its cover evokes. I recommend it to longtime fans and those who like their comics smart and irreverent. Neither will be disappointed. Read Full Review

    The Weekly Crisis - Grant McLaughlin Apr 1, 2012

    ARPRSA is far from perfect, but it shows a lot of promise for a first effort. If Clevinger and company can build on these early successes and iron out some of the shortcomings (and I think they can), I have every faith that Real Science Adventures will mature into a book every bit as strong as the main Atomic Robo series.

    CHUD - Jeb Delia Mar 30, 2012

    By the way, if you're wondering why my individual page counts don't add up to the listed 26, Red 5 precedes each story with a full title page; while it does provide a nice transition from story to story, anyone computing cost per page might want to bear that in mind. And since we don't get a lot of free comics to review here at Thor's Comic Column, I should also mention that I was actually able to review a free pdf of this book, which means my evaluation is probably a bit more generous than it might have been if I'd had to pay for it. It's all quite nice, but I suspect most readers would find their money better spent on one of the complete-story Atomic Robo collections that are currently available, and telling the folks at Red 5 that a full-length ongoing from The Sparrow would be most welcome.
