This Saturday, after you sleep in a little bit to recover from all the awesome of seeing Thor on Friday, make sure to eat your Wheaties and get your ass out to your Local Comic Shop for FREE COMIC BOOK DAY! Yes friends, the greatest day of the year, the first Saturday in May, is HERE!!!! (well, second greatest day, really, after Free Funnybook Day, coming next Monday!)
All week on IoM, we’re going to give advance reviews of some of the mostly hotly anticipated comics this Saturday and let you know which ones are worth checking out, or which ones might be better left for other fans.
Atomic Robo has become not only a mainstay of FCBD these last couple of years, it’s also become one of the books I look forward to the most every year. From Red 5 Comics, Atomic Robo tells the story of Robo and his group of Action Scientists that travel the world and go on adventures in science. Each mini-series jumps to a different time period in Robo’s life with the most current, Atomic Robo and the Deadly Art of Science taking place in the 1930’s.
Atomic Robo‘s FCBD issue takes place in modern times and features Robo as the guest judge at a science fair that gets crashed by…wait for it….DR. DINOSAUR! Yes, Dr. Dinosaur, who’s been Robo’s most popular enemy with fans makes another hilarious appearance in this pretty awesome comic book. It’s a short read, but it’s a helluva lot of fun. Also featured in the book are previews of Red 5’s Foster Broussard and Moon Girl, though the previews are too short to really have much of an opinion on.
Suitable for fans of all ages, Atomic Robo is an absolute must to pick up this Saturday on Free Comic Book Day!
