Set in 1938 during WWII, the Japanese have captured a Chinese scientist who has made a breakthrough in zero-point technology. The U.S. Military sends a reluctant Atomic Robo to investigate, find Dr. Lu Huang, and discover if the rumors of the Japanese creating their own teleforce gun are true. Of course, the military might have ulterior motives in finding Dr. Huang.

Giant monsters attacking the world makes for strange bedfellows. Atomic Robo and his team accept an alliance with China’s “Most Perfect Science Division” to help fight Task Force Ultra and Majestic and stop the Biomega attacks around the world. Giving them access to state-of-the-art technology this allows the team to quickly construct Robo with a new body (although the slimmed down version lacks some of the appeal of the original, in my opinion).

On the larger stage we also get a look at the Titan program struggles to stop the growing threat of the Biomega (Pacific Rim style) which only adds to the pressure for Robo and his team to find a solution while also attempting to rebuild Atomic Robo’s unique power source all while hiding their technological breakthroughs from their Chinese partners who otherwise could recreate the tech for their own purposes after the threat has past. Their solution is inventive.

The latest issue of Atomic Robo: The Knights of the Golden Circle could easily be titled “Atomic Robo and The Great Train Robbery” (which only kinda, sorta goes according to plan). With the help of his new friends, Atomic Robo sets out to rescue a trainload of prisoners and stop the transported weapons and ammunition from reaching it’s destination (which turns out to be easier said than done).

atomic-robo-vol-9-trade-paperback

You know what’s awesome? Atomic Robo! You know what’s really awesome? Atomic Robo vs. Dr. Dinosaur!! You know what’s really, really, really awesome? An entire trade paperback of Atomic Robo vs. Dr. Dinosaur!!! Collecting the entire run of Atomic Robo and The Savage Sword of Dr. Dinosaur the latest trade paperback from writer Brian Clevinger and artist Scott Wegener pits the atomic-powered science-adventurer against his most insane enemy. Did I mention it’s awesome?!

While avoiding the fallout of someone branding him as a nuclear terrorist, Atomic Robo sets out on a simple mission in the jungles Venezuela near a secret Nazi base which becomes much more complicated when he discovers an underground civilization of rock monsters with laser faces along with Dr. Dinosuar and his plan to detonate a ridiculous Time Bomb to bring back the age of the dinosaurs.

If you buy only one Atomic Robo trade (and, trust me, you should buy far more than one) buy this one. Did I mention it’s awesome?! Must-Read.

[Red 5, $18.95]

If you’re an atomic-powered robotic scientific-adventurer lost 140 some years in the past in the middle of the Old West the smart thing to do would be to lay low. Following the events of Atomic Robo and The Savage Sword of Dr. Dinosaur that’s just what our hero has been doing for more than a decade, but when an outlaw gang shoots an old-timer within earshot of Atomic Robo, propriety be damned.

Dr. Dinosaur was right! Okay, he wasn’t actually right. He is an insane dinosaur scientist after all. The final issue of Atomic Robo and The Savage Sword of Dr. Dinosaur #5 will end Atomic Robo‘s battle with his arch-nemesis in the underground caves where Dr. Dinosaur has enslaved a rock-creature army and created a nuclear-powered time bomb to destroy all trace of humanity. And, here’s the thing, it goes off!
