Whenever I think about what is wrong in comics, I'm drawn to books that recognize these flaws and try to make them right. I think we of scans_daily, while sometimes disagreeing, have a general "taste" in comic books. Most of us like books like Batgirl or Thor: The Mighty Avenger, for example.
Atomic Robo is one of those books. The creators KNOW what is wrong in comics, and are sworn to fix them/not do them. So, I will post some Atomic Robo now, because that book NEEDS love, and we need to show that comics industry that no, we do not put up with your bullshit, and instead our money will go to good books until you get your act together.
About Atomic Robo:
A celebrity scientist robot built by Nikola Tesla. He goes on adventures exploring fringe science and other stuff. He also sometimes works for the military, reluctantly. It is like Hellboy, but with science and jokes and concentrated awesome. The fifth volume recently ended, but the first four are available as trades. I highly recommend them.
From Free Comic Book Day 2011. He is about to judge a science fair when one of his foes, Dr. Dinosaur (who is a dinosaur) shows up.
