Atomic Robo (Free Comic Book Day 2014)

The latest Free Comic Book Day issue of Atomic Robo pits our intrepid science adventurer against the Yonkers Devil in the "smoldering wasteland" of what was once Centralia when Atomic Robo and his team come across both the creature and a college student on spring break who has unknowingly stolen the Devil's eggs. Offering the share of crazy action and humor the comic is known for, the story should please fans.

Red 5's Free Comic Book Day issue also includes back-up story featuring Bodie Troll stealing pumpkin's in No Man's Patch for Miz Bijou (while also checking out the rumored roots and trash of the forbidden garden of far more interest to the troll). Finally, the issue includes a short tease for Red 5's new series Haunted featuring Sarah McCallister traversing a world where the walls between Earth and the spiritual world have been torn down. Not surprisingly, the Atomic Robo story is the stand-out although there's some fun to be had with Bodie's adventure. Worth a look.
