Atomic Robo Vol 2 #1



Atomic Robo Vol 2 #1
Written by Brian Clevinger and illustrated by Scott Wegener and Zack Frinfrock
Published by Red 5 Comics


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

Heh, funny stuff, was linked here from the comic's writer's site. At first I didn't read the part on the left and just started reading the review and thought to myself "Wow, it's like it's dictated by a kid." Amusing review, though; certainly highlights what we dwelled on more when we were kids.

This is a good review. It makes me want to read the comic. Maybe I will go buy it?

Dom Sutton said...

Just found this site. Great stuff! Looking forward to reading more reviews.

Wow, anonymously taking shots at the opinion of a 7 year old? Seriously? What is wrong with people...

That being said, very nicely done. Like apoc, was linked from the writer's site where he called it, "... probably the best review we will ever get." It's nice to see someone actually ENJOY something.

Like another who posted, I was wondering what was going on until I saw the text on the left. This has gotta e the cutest review I've ever read, (And better than half the ones written by people thrice his age)

It makes me nostalgic about my youth...

Who am I kidding, I'm still like that. Please keep up the good work.

If it was reviewed by a kid, awesome.

If not, they just gave us a play-by-play of something....for free....

Play by play? Hah. If this 'synopsis' is specific enough to ruin the story for you, then either the story is awful or you're just very sad. Nuff said.

As for this review, cool! It's awesome to see little kids getting involved in stuff like this. It will be especially interesting to watch his opinions mature, if you can keep him writing reviews long enough.

I was also linked here from the artist sight. Great review I wish my parents had shown me the magic of comic books when I was younger. I might have read something. Ah well I found them eventually but keep up the good work.

Linked here from the author's site. I love the review; it has the sort of unbiased pure honesty that only a child could provide.

Like many others, I was linked here from the author (Brian Clevinger's) site. This really is a good review! Its simplicity is amusing =^.^=

And since no one has mentioned it yet, you can check out news from Brian and view other stuff (like his premier free-access work, 8-bit theater) at nuklearpower.com

Linked from author's site. This was a fantastic review! I loved it's pure innocent quality; something I've tried very hard to get back when I found out how boring and useless jaded cynicism can be.

It told me some stuff that was really useful and important to know about the comic, and made me want to buy it!

This review was DEFINITELY better than any "professional" review I've read. I'm going to read more right now!

Atomic Robo is the best!

Darren said...

Like a million others I was linked and just giving a big thumbs up to a dad and his kid doing something together and encouraging reading.

Josh Ruggles said...

Yeah, you got a good review site here. The kid knows what he's talking about! It's pretty dang awesome that you guys read comics together!

-I HAVE NO FUCKING IDEA WHO HIRED YOU!
-AND YOU WRITE LIKE A FRIGGIN' 7 SEVEN YEAR OLD...wait.................................................................................OH FUCK...
