Atomic Robo & the Dawn of a New Era #5

Atomic Robo & the Dawn of a New Era comes to a close without any twist, large disaster, or looming trouble for the new Tesladyne team. While many members feared his existence, issue #5 finally introduces everyone to the new Alan (who is far less homicidal than the original).

Other than setting himself on fire and jumping out a window, his first foray out of the lab turns out to be largely successful. It seems like, at least for now, Robo's nurture over nature argument is proving successful.

In other storylines, Jenkins continues to be Jenkins while arguing for a larger offensive against the dangers he believes to be coming, Vikram and Lang make another attempt at a vacation, and Bernard's transformation has apparently just begun (although it is still to early to tell if this is ultimately a good or bad thing for everyone else not being transformed by talking crystal creatures who live deep under the Earth). There's still plenty out there for the science adventures to tackle, but for today everything seems to be fine. Worth a look.
