Atomic Robo returns with more sciencey adventures including the continuation of The Sparrow‘s WWII spy story and Robo training with Bruce Lee as well as a pair of new stories including a battle of 19th Century flying ships with a turn of the century celebrity crew.
“Tesla’s Electric Schooner” finds Nikola Tesla and the unlikely band of George Westinghouse, Charles Fort, Annie Oakley, Wong Kei-ying, Winfield Scott Lovecraft, and Harry Houdini all working together aboard Tesla’s latest invention to take down the War Zepplin. This along with the continuing Sparrow’s tale turn out to be the two best adventures of the issue (making this an aberration as neither star Atomic Robo).
The fourth tale, “Atomic Robo and the Electromatic Dream Machine” finds the science adventurer trapped in a dreamlike battle of wits with a disgruntled fired scientist. It’s fun, but not too memorable. Worth a look.
