Atomic Robo Vol 2 #1
Atomic Robo Vol 2 #1
Written by Brian Clevinger and illustrated by Scott Wegener and Zack Frinfrock

The cover of this comic is so cool. It’s a robot in an army outfit holding a machine gun.
The comic is about a Robot that is used by the army to go into battle and kick butt. It takes place a long time ago during one of the wars and the US is using Robo to help win.
The battles scenes are all really good. I like the boats filled with soldiers heading towards land to invade the bad guys. I like how Robo and his army friends took a plane to try and land where the enemy bases are and there are battleships in the water trying to shoot the plane out of the sky. It was cool how the battle ships shot the plane and they needed Robo to jump out but he was a little scared because he thought he was too heavy for the parachute to work. Then his friends told him to jump or they were going to push him out of the plane.
Another funny part was how one of the soldiers told his friend that even if he gets killed he still owes him ten dollars from a bet. It was also really funny when Robo just got mad about all the shooting and called the bad guys jerks
The robot fight parts were interesting. I like how the robot used different moves to beat the German soldiers. He punched and kicked them and used weapons to beat them too. I like how he did a lot of different things to beat the enemy soldiers. He was running around and doing moves like he was a person and then he would pick up a machine gun and use that, too. He also used a rocket launcher which rocked!
I think my favorite part was when Robo destroyed the enemy truck and used the door as a shield and charged the bad guys. That looked really cool. In the end it looked like Robo was going to win pretty easily. He beat up all the enemy soldiers and none of them could hurt them with bullets or their fists. But the secret was that the bad soldiers have a bunch of robots of their own and one of them really beats down Robo.
The second story was very short but the fight with the monster was good. I want to see more of that.
I liked the art. Robo looks great and I like how he looks with the uniform. The giant enemy robot and crab monster he fights look cool, too. There’s a good picture of Robo charging the crab that looked really amazing.
It was a pretty good comic that I never heard of before and I want to read the next issue to find out if Robo beats the bad robot or not. It should be a crazy battle.
My Rating: 8.5 out of 10
