Atomic Robo and The Savage Sword of Dr. Dinosaur #5

Dr. Dinosaur was right! Okay, he wasn't actually right. He is an insane dinosaur scientist after all. The final issue of Atomic Robo and The Savage Sword of Dr. Dinosaur #5 will end Atomic Robo's battle with his arch-nemesis in the underground caves where Dr. Dinosaur has enslaved a rock-creature army and created a nuclear-powered time bomb to destroy all trace of humanity. And, here's the thing, it goes off!

Filled with more war of words between the action scientist and the deranged reptile, the final issue of the series ends on a suprising note. Unable to prevent Dr. Dinosaur from exploding his absurd creation, Atomic Robo gets his colleagues to safety but is unable to remove himself from the center of the blast. Although it doesn't destroy all history of mankind, Dr. Dinosaur's time bomb does actually shoot Atomic Robo into the past. So he was right! Not really! But sort of!

The issue also sees Jenkins turn the tables on Majestic, but, just as Atomic Robo's story ends on a cliffhanger, we're left to wonder just what happened after the explosion at Tesladyne. Must-read.
