Review: Atomic Robo & The Flying She-Devils of the Pacific

Atomic Robo returns in this seventh volume of his adventures around time. In this mini series, set just after the Second World War, we get a new cast of characters just for the story with jet packs, ion guns, explosions and more.

Packed within these five issues, Robo crashes (many times) and meets a crew of rocket pack flying women to battle a rouge troop of Japanese scientists who wish to strike against the USA.

What we get as readers is a fast paced, enjoyable read. The cast of new characters are introduced quickly, but we still get a chance to get attached to them and join them on this ride. As per usual with Robo adventures, there is a nice mix of science, intrigue and explosions as we are carried from page to page.

As for the enemy, we get a good look at them and their motivations for attack. I always think that a key element of a bad guy, must be his motivations – he must feel he is right, otherwise it feels forced. That is what we get here with the main enemy. The Japanese Science troops feel betrayed after the war and feel they must get there revenge. Even at the end you feel for them in some way.

In the final issue, we get a bittersweet ending – the day is won, but at what cost? It leaves some questions at the end for Robo, plus a nice sweetener at the final page.

In all, another excellent Atomic Robo series, which I will continue to read and hope for the crossover with Hellboy that could be so good.
