    The Fandom Post - Josh Begley Jul 25, 2012

    Atomic Robo is one of the best comics being published today. It has wit, empathy, and honesty and more comics should strive to reach the level of excellence Team Robo achieves. As this is the first issue of the new volume, it is a perfect jumping-on point for new readers. Robo encounters a group of American women who have gone AWOL from the Navy after the end of World War II to be "ethical" sky pirates in the South Pacific. Like other Atomic Robo stories, this issue mixes great characterization with action and weird super-science. This is absolutely recommended. Read Full Review

    Overall, there is nothing that isnt to like. This promises to lead into another epic and exciting adventure for our robotic protagonist and his new friends. Im looking forward to see where this particular arc goes, and definitely hoping that Robo gets his own jetpack! Pick it up, people, and support a great story put out by Red 5 Comics.

    The art and characters are, as always, fantastic. The world of Atomic Robo has always been something I enjoyed, the historical influences and the great characters that make you want to keep picking up each adventure. This issue is full of great scenes and catch dialogue. My favorite moment is towards the end. Just make sure you pick up this issue if you have the chance, definitely a good read. I have been reading Atomic Robo since the beginning and I strongly recommend it if you're looking for a great adventure series to start. The historical undertones and amazing characters are just some of the reasons, but this new series just continues the amazing adventures. Read Full Review

    Atomic Robo and the Flying She-Devils of the Pacific #1 is the beginning of what is sure to be another incredibly entertaining Atomic Robo epic. Clevinger and Wegener are a team in perfect sync with one another and it shows. Some readers might be disappointed in the overall lack of any really heavy sci-fi beyond jetpacks but there's still time for that. Remember, the beauty of Robo is the build-up, and this only the beginning. Read Full Review

    Comics Bulletin - Steve Morris Jul 3, 2012

    It helps that this is one of the more "realist" stories, so far, that the team have done. Evil dinosaurs and mad scientists are tremendous fun, but having two teams of humans have to invent their own work to keep ahead of each other adds a stronger sense of tension into the story. The last-page tease for how the rest of this volume will continue is inventive, and tightens the boundaries of this story in a satisfying manner. Sometimes a story encompasses a whole world, and sometimes it can zoom in on a small area and ratchet up the tension: this is a book where the latter happens. Paying lip-service to the era and to the pulp style, it's a fun comic which gives you a slightly sexist 1920s robot trying to make friends with a group of jetpack-bound space pirates. Which, thankfully, appeals not just to both fans of one-upped irony, but to a more widespread audience. It's great fun. Read Full Review

    Razorfine - Alan Rapp Jul 5, 2012

    A fun first issue to start the new series with an unexpected (but humorous) chauvinistic slant from Atomic Robo. Worth a look. Read Full Review

    ComicList - Brandon Borzelli Jun 30, 2012

    Atomic Robo is a great character and his stories are the perfect mix of humor, action, science and sarcasm. This issue launches a ton of new characters and new threats for Robo to tangle with. This comic is a solidly written and a well drawn book. I'm sure this story is going to ramp up to usual Robo chaos in the comic issues. This is definitely worth a look. Atomic Robo represents everything that is great about comic books. Read Full Review
