Atomic Robo and the Temple of Od #3

Atomic Robo and his adventures in China during WWII continue. While hiding out with the Ghost Bandits, Robo and his friends have time to contemplate the enhanced super-soldiers they are up against. This allows the comic to take a step back and muse over the idea of the Zero Point and how their enemies are drawing power from the lowest energy state in the universe and using it for their own purposes.

Very much the middle issue of a storyline, Atomic Robo and the Temple of Od #3 doesn't offer much in the way of bells and whistles or memorable moments but does deepen the story. Robo's musings also help the science adventurer come up with a plan on how to take down the enchanced soldiers. Of course not every plan is foolproof, and rushing into the fray might just get our hero into even more trouble.

The issue ends with our hero in danger yet again. Although the science of his plan seemed sound, the execution may not have been all that he hoped. With only two issues remaining, Atomic Robo needs to buckle down and find a way to stop the Japanese, their Zero Point experiments, and the super-soldiers at their command. Worth a look.
