The Yonkers Devil is probably the non-intelligent foe who's given Robo the most trouble in the past.

So much trouble, that he's decided to hire a certain group of mercenaries to help him out in it's capture.

The "Harvest" arc of Teen Titans/Superboy/Legion Lost is . . . Bad. I mean, really bad. It could have been interesting, but it's just been bad. I mean, it even has a Gorgonopsid and a properly feathered Raptor show up in its pages and it's STILL bad. I love that sort of thing! And I realized the main reason why I find it so bad.

I can't take the villain as a credible threat because he comes off to much like Atomic Robo's Doctor Dinosaur.

In this issue, we have it all laid bear.

I wanted to give the DC relaunch a chance.  I really did.  But between the silly costumes, the gratuitous violence, the demeaning character portrayals, and (in my opinion) some pretty mediocre storytelling choices, I think I have to give it a pass.

(Marvel isn't much better, but that's a rant for another day).

I'm not giving up on comics, however.  There are three titles out there that I follow religiously:

The first is GOLD DIGGER.  One man writing and drawing the book, without any fill-ins for 20 years.  And while it may look like a cheesecake book at first glance, consider that the three major protagonists are all female, and have been since the beginning.

The second?  ATOMIC ROBO.  Because they get it.  Comics are supposed to be fun.  And Robo is fun, without being childish or "wacky".

And the last is a book I discovered only recently, and have posted about before:

WITCH DOCTOR.  And, amusingly enough, these two panels from the  latest issue pretty much sum up my feelings about "mainstream" comics.

I have to say, the news of the DC reboot really depresses me. I was so excited for some issues coming out in the next  couple of months, like that Batman & Robin issue in France. Now, it just seems like it doesn't even matter anymore.

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.

Long time lurker and commenter, first time poster.. fingers crossed that I did this right..

As another post said, picking one perfect moment from an Atomic Robo comic is insanely difficult given how many there are. Given that Robo was taken already, and someone already recently posted the scan I would have used for Jenkins I give you, Dr. Dinosaur, a character only marginally easier to pick them out from due to the fact he's only shown up twice, plus a second moment I included just for how funny I found it.

Both pages are from Volume 4, issue 3 of Atomic Robo

Behold )

As a final bit of icing on the proverbial cake of our inevitable destruction I give you..Dr. Dinosaur's Twitter account!

Choosing One Perfect Moment for Atomic Robo is difficult because it's like a whole series of One Perfect Moments. But this scene, I think, really shows what Atomic Robo is about.

Atomic Robo, volume 3, issue 4. Two pages.

The other day, somebody posted a solicit for Brian Clevinger's upcoming Marvel miniseries, and described him as the "Nuklear Age guy." I thought that was kind of odd at the time. By rights, and by now, he really should be the "Atomic Robo guy."

Robo is one of the most consistently entertaining comics being published at the moment. I'm actually quite surprised more of it hasn't been posted here, as it would seem to be right up SD's alley: continuity-light, focused on humor, colorful and expressive art.

To prevent delays, Robo is published as short limited series rather than as a single ongoing. The first one, Atomic Robo and the Fightin' Scientists of Tesladyne, was a series of vignettes that mostly served to establish the character; the second, Dogs of War, was almost entirely set during World War II; and the third, Atomic Robo and the Shadow from Beyond Time, was a Lovecraftian story guest-starring Lovecraft himself, Charles Fort, and Carl Sagan. Volume Four, Atomic Robo and the Revenge of the Vampire Dimension, just wrapped up last month. All have been collected in trade paperback, and are apparently available in the iPhone store.

Atomic Robo is a sentient robot built by Nikola Tesla in the early twentieth century, and regards himself as Tesla's son. In the modern day, he's the CEO of Tesladyne, which is headquartered in New York and which is the first port of call for anyone dealing with serious weirdness. At the beginning of Revenge, they're also hiring.
