    Stephen has championed Atomic Robo for years and for a good reason. Its a great book and Clevinger and Wegener put everything they into each story. This issue has all the trademarks of an Atomic Robo story, historical setting and figures and a promises of some great action. Robo doesnt make much of an appearance and this is the first time that previous reading is required but it barely affects the enjoyment. Buy it now! Read Full Review

    It didn't take long to sell me on the new series, and even after receiving a free digital review copy of the comic I gladly spent the money to grab a print copy. Giddyap Robo, I'm ready to ride! Worth a look. Read Full Review

    “Atomic Robo: The Knights of the Golden Circle” is one of the least intimidating experiences you'll have jumping into the “9th volume” of something. Thanks to a terrifically focused creative team, “Atomic Robo” remains concerned with crafting a greater fiction, maintaining a sleek comic book pace, and welcoming new readers at every turn. It doesn't always get the attention it deserves, but take my word for it, there's no reason not to dip your toe in this time around. And long time fans will be pleased as ever with its return.

    Clevinger and Wegener's exposition in "Atomic Robo and the Knights of the Golden Circle" #1 is friendly to new readers and uses upbeat action to relay information. The only thing that's missing is a little more depth of characterization to give readers a stake in more than just Robo's fate, but Doc Holliday shows that Clevinger has a handle on this kind of development if future issues have more focus on the cast. It's a strong start and will satisfy both new and longtime readers. Read Full Review
