Things continue to be hectic at the site of the new offices of Tesladyne Industries. Lang and Abasi are trying to get the halted construction of the new Tesladyne back on schedule (realizing their boss stealing the private jet of the neighbor who forced the stoppage isn’t likely to help), while Abasi is doing his best to make sure Lang doesn’t kill anyone.

Atomic Robo versus… the Homeowners Association? The first issue of the latest volume of Atomic Robo sees our robotic scientist/adventurer setting out for greener pastures by beginning the construction of the new Tesladyne Institute in the badlands of New Mexico’s Jornada del Muerto desert. It seems that even those who have save the Earth aren’t immune to bureaucratic red tape. Introduced to the facility and various characters through they eyes of the returning Foley, we witness the frustration of of several different Tesladyne workers, including Robo himself, at the lack of progress to get the new facility up and running. Despite having only two neighbors, Robo is dragged into a homeowners meeting with Sir Richard Branson who cites enough Tesladyne infractions to halt all “progress” on the site. Poor Robo. Where’s a psychotic dinosaur to hit when you need one?

Atomic Robo and his adventures in China during WWII continue. While hiding out with the Ghost Bandits, Robo and his friends have time to contemplate the enhanced super-soldiers they are up against. This allows the comic to take a step back and muse over the idea of the Zero Point and how their enemies are drawing power from the lowest energy state in the universe and using it for their own purposes.

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).
