+ Pull List

Remember those carefree days when the world was only imperiled by things like giant mutants from the sea or the occasional mad scientist dinosaur? Now it's 2017 and everything's horrible all the time! But that's why Atomic Robo is setting up the new Tesladyne Institute in the badlands of New Mexico's Jornada del Muerto desert with Sir Richard Branson's Spaceport on one side and Elon Musk's Solar Farm on the other. With neighbors like these, who needs to uncover an insidious plot that threatens the lives of everyone in the world?

Bullet points:
* Celebrate 10 years of Atomic Robo by jumping on this brand new story!

    While the day-to-day of Robo's existence may be lacking excitement, the same can't be said halfway around the world where at a conference in Hungary something quite bizarre occurs (which will no doubt help take Robo's mind of his current troubles" while obviously causing all kinds of new trouble). Worth a look. Read Full Review

    Comic Crusaders - Andy Hall Nov 2, 2017

    If you are familiar with Atomic Robo, you can be assured you are in for a fun ride with humor and adventure. Clevinger and Wegener are careful with their placement of humor so that it works to support the drama of the story and not undercut it. The advantage they have in building these five issue arc is that they make it easy for new reader to jump on board and join in the fun without having to worry about all the previous adventures. If they like the story they can always go through the back catalogue. Read Full Review

    Doom Rocket - Clyde Hall Nov 3, 2017

    Spectre of Tomorrow #1 is a building issue, not an action extravaganza. I expect this; Robo story chapters don't always drop the reader directly into a fray. They court patience to set up the Big Bad before our hero goes after it full tilt. That said, this issue would not lend itself well as a jumping-on-point for new readers. There is a very brief 'Where the Story Is Now' intro, but overall, it's taken for granted you're a returning reader. But if youare a reader who has come back for more, you'll find thatAtomic Robo has provided a warm welcome. Read Full Review

    IGN - Jesse Schedeen Nov 2, 2017

    This issue makes for a very slow, even quiet start to Spectre of Tomorrow, and because of that, this may not be the ideal jumping-on point for new and curious readers. Read Full Review

    Atomic Robo: The Spectre of Tomorrow #1 does a decent job of introducing its cast but leaves a lot to be desired for fans of the sci-fi and robot genre. Read Full Review
