Atomic Robo & the Dawn of a New Era #2

With the grown-ups gone, and Robo down in the basement with his secret project, it falls on Foley to get the new Action Scientist recruits up to speed. Atomic Robo & the Dawn of a New Era #2 jumps around a bit, keeping us up to date on the status of the various characters.

We see the newbies bonding and even carving out their own clubhouse (with an ominous basement that foreshadows trouble?). We also check in on Vikram and Lang's vacation which has taken a detour from the beach in favor of scientific study (which itself may have come to an end given what the pair unexpectedly run into). And we see Foley spend some time with the recruits, lecturing them on how much impossible is acceptable for a Tesladyne project. There are also more scenes between Robo and Alan as the second issue continues to push a father/son vibe (even having the pair play catch).

Vikram and Lang have found their trouble, Bernard appears good and lost in his exploration, and the question now becomes is how soon before the rest of the Action Scientist run into troubles of their own? Worth a look.
