The six-issue mini-series continues as Atomic Robo Presents Real Science Adventures returns with a new arc. The Good: The mix of short stories, all drawn by different artists has been replaced with a single ongoing and artist. The Bad: As the storyline focuses on a much younger version of Tesla we don’t even the hint of Atomic Robo.
Atomic Robo Presents Real Science Adventures #7 has a consistent look and feel and gives the reader a closer examination and the pre-Atomic Robo days of Nikola Tesla. In this issue two of Tesla’s inventions are stolen from a demonstration by a shadowy new enemy who plans to use the scientist’s teleautomatic control unit in their effort to overthrow the United States Government.
Even without Atomic Robo, writer Brian Clevinger still delivers a fun (if somewhat unmemorable) adventure. I like Erica Henderson‘s art, but at times felt like an odd choice for the tone of the comic. That said, I’m still likely to pick up the next issue. For fans.
