Atomic Robo & the Dawn of a New Era #4

In the penultimate issue of the mini-series events come to a head. First, Jenkins return proves a challenge for Robo finding a role for his new friend within the new Tesladyne that doesn't involve him putting the new recruits in the infirmary or scaring them half to death. Hacking into the computer system to learn more about their mysterious instructor does nothing to elevate the new recruits' fears.

With their vacation ending in fighting vampires from another dimension, Vikram and Lang prepare for a second attempt, but before they can get underway one of them will stumble upon Robo's secret project. The discovery that Robo brought Alan back causes some... lively discussion among the group (though Alan's reaction to the events, and many members of Tesladyne arguing for his immediate destruction, is still unclear).

Deep inside the Earth, Bernard discovers just what Princess Nequai needs from him to save her people from the lasting influence of Dr. Dinosaur. Although the rock creature gets what she needs from the scientist, what effect will this have on Bernard going forward? Bring on issue #5! Worth a look.
