The good guys start to fight back in the latest issue of Atomic Robo Presents Real Science Adventures as Nikola Tesla leads his team of Charles Fort, Winfield-Scott Lovecraft, Ehrie “Harry Houdini Weiss, Master Wong Ke-Ying, and Annie Oakley to retrieve his stolen property and make their own strategic strikes on the evil industrialist threesome of Franklin Reade, Robert Trydan, and Jack Wright.
From their attacks, which include the destruction of one of Wright’s factories, Tesla and his team are able to discover the Black Coat agenda and at least begin to prepare themselves for the planned attack from the treacherous combination of a steel and steam engine manufacturer, a weapons designer, and the head of an international gang of criminals.
I was happy to see the return of both Ke-Ying and Oakley (although Annie isn’t given much to do this time around) as it looks like there will be plenty of trouble for all of Tesla’s associates to handle beginning next issue with the reprisal from the Black Coats. The issue also reprints the amusing “The Yonkers Devil” as a back-up story. Worth a look.
