Review: Atomic Robo: Ghost of Station X #1

Have I mentioned that I love Atomic Robo?

Now into it’s sixth Volume (plus a couple of Free Comic Book Day editions) I am glad to see the title is still going strong.

Atomic Robo is Red 5’s main man robot and he’s back with ‘Ghost of Station X’

 

There are two kinds of people. Those who love Atomic Robo and those who haven’t read it yet. What’s that? You don’t want to start on the sixth volume? Well, GOOD NEWS! Every volume is stand alone. BOOM. You can start with this one and know what’s going on from page one. KA-BOOM. Then go back and read the other volumes in any order. THWACKA-BOOM. Oh, a plot? Okay, fine. Astronauts are stranded in a deteriorating orbit, and it’s up to Atomic Robo to save them in a race against the laws of physics!

Available tomorrow in digital as well as print #1 allows another easy jumping on point for new fans to read – although I would recommend going back and reading some more.

There are some brilliant back and forth dialogue here as Robo and he’s team race against time to deal with the stranded astronauts.

On top of that there is a second going on which you know is going to be linked with the main plot, it’s just you don’t know how!

The art again has some brilliant visual tics which make it fun to read a second time. There are also some nice bits in dialogue which add to the humor of the title, while still giving suspense and seriousness when needed.

In all this is an excellent #1 – introducing the key players, adding suspense, humor and even a brilliant cliffhanger ending leading into #2!
