Atomic Robo and The Savage Sword of Dr. Dinosaur #3

As Tesladyne prepares to repel soldiers coming after both the company and Atomic Robo after Majestic 12 has done a solid job framing them as nuclear terrorists, the company's leader has his own troubles in Venezuela trying to stay alive and stop the crazed Dr. Dinosaur from detonating his nuclear-powered time bomb.

Most of Atomic Robo's story concerns the robot trying to keep himself, and his human companions, alive from the attacks of the odd creatures under the crazy dinosaur's control while Dr. Dinosaur calls on the help of a few of his rock soldiers to put the bomb that Robo tricked him into disassembling back together. Because of this we don't get any more great banter between the pair, but both provide their own fun separately deep under the jungles of Venezuela.

Next issue I'd expect to see more of Jenkins leading the group to repel the soldiers who have finally arrived and, hopefully, more back-and-forth between Atomic Robo and Dr. Dinosaur. Worth a look.
