Although I prefer my Atomic Robo stories to have Atomic Robo in them, the latest issue of Atomic Robo Presents Real Science Adventures provides a threesome of historic figures to carry the load. Charles Fort, Winfield-Scott Lovecraft, and Ehrie “Harry Houdini” Weiss work together to uncover the truth behind the evil machinations of the mysterious Black Coat army led by a shadowy of group of heads of industry who are also behind the theft of Nikola Tesla‘s Magnifying Transmitter.
The threesome of historical figures are entertaining, and there’s a good amount of action here, but I actually had more fun with the combination of Master Wong Kei-Ying and Annie Oakley from Atomic Robot Presents Real Science Adventures #8 who sadly don’t return.
Although their investigation leads to little in the way of concrete answers, it does narrow the focus of the storyline going forward as well as bring the threesome to the attention of another interested party: Nikola Tesla.
