One of the greatest things about these Atomic Robo volumes is that anyone can pick them up to read. At any point. You don’t need to be steeped in the history of the character or the situation. All you need to know is Atomic Robo. Everything in the story is usually as new to him as it is to you.
And so we move to Volume 7. It shows the strength of the character that we are this many volumes in – plus Real Science Adventures too!
What do we have here:
- Jet Packs
- Post war
- Sky pirates
This is all you need, the issue ends with a cliffhanger and wanting more. You know there are 4 more issues to come and things are going to get worse! In the space of the 23 pages in this book, we know the good guys (gals) and their motives, the bad guys and their motives and how its going to move forward. Already all the key players are in place and you just plonk Atomic Robo in the middle.
Again there are some excellent art pieces – especially the action scenes.
Red 5 can do no wrong as far as I’m concerned here!
