Atomic Robo opened Tesladyne Institute's doors to the next generation of Action Scientists. Everything was going pretty smoothly until Lang discovered Robo's secret robot son who is kinda (sorta) a new iteration of the old automatic intelligence that tried to cook the Earth in nuclear fire some years back. No way things are falling apart, right?

    A character is formally introduced to the team creating the “New Era” for this series. This is a quiet issue, featuring characters' reactions to Alan's creation and unveiling. There are sweet and angry reactions, but all are honest for each individual. Several plot threads are left dangling for future outings, and that's fine. A change of pace for any series is good, and this story was very enjoyable. I would recommend this or any other Atomic Robo series to anyone seeking science fiction fun. Read Full Review

    If this is your first time reading about Atomic Robo, you should really check it out. Even though the series is released physically by IDW, Wegener and Clevinger have been releasing the series for free online since the beginning. The assumption is that if people enjoy it, they'll support it" which appears to be working out so far! Read Full Review

    In other storylines, Jenkins continues to be Jenkins while arguing for a larger offensive against the dangers he believes to be coming, Vikram and Lang make another attempt at a vacation, and Bernard's transformation has apparently just begun (although it is still to early to tell if this is ultimately a good or bad thing for everyone else not being transformed by talking crystal creatures who live deep under the Earth). There's still plenty out there for the science adventures to tackle, but for today everything seems to be fine. Worth a look. Read Full Review
