Atomic Robo and the Spectre of Tomorrow #3

Things continue to be hectic at the site of the new offices of Tesladyne Industries. Lang and Abasi are trying to get the halted construction of the new Tesladyne back on schedule (realizing their boss stealing the private jet of the neighbor who forced the stoppage isn't likely to help), while Abasi is doing his best to make sure Lang doesn't kill anyone.

Meanwhile, Atomic Robo is mostly ignoring his team and attempting to covertly help Walker and Broughton, now working for CERES, on the impossible cybernetic outbreak that keeps popping up in the most unusual places at an increasing rate.

Robo's adventure takes him, a gung-ho Foley, and a less-gung-ho Fischer to Hashima Island after our intrepid science adventurer deduces that the causes of whatever is happening with this cybernetic attacks traces back to the island and to Alan. With Robo getting his butt kicked by the island's defenses, and some poor shooting by Foley, unexpected assistance comes from an equally unexpected source. Worth a look.
