Atomic Robo and the Temple of Od #2

"The Temple of Od" continues as Atomic Robo and Helen are captured by the enemy and taken back to their secret laboratory. Thanks to the timely sneak attack of Helen's friends from Shanghai, after some verbal sparring with Atomic Robo and his captors, Robo is given just the distraction he needs to sneak into the lab with Helen and find the missing scientist, Dr. Lu.

Although their enemy is building a doomsday device as Robo suspected, the work they are doing (thanks to the captured Dr. Lu) is no less dangerous to the outside world.

One heroic rescue later and Atomic Robo, Dr. Lu, and Helen are all fleeing the burning laboratory, leaving one pissed-off super-soldier in their wake. Now that the immediate goal of rescuing Dr. Lu has been accomplished, Robo and his friends will still have to deal with a crumbling laboratory full of the tools necessary to create an entire army of enhanced soldiers just like the one that was able to capture Robo all on his own. Good thing we've got three issues left! Worth a look.
