Of all the issues coming out this week, Red 5 Comics is standing by with what I believe to be the most anticipated issue of the season – Atomic Robo: Shadow from Beyond Time.  Atomic Robo is one of the best ongoing series out there, and if you haven’t picked up the adventures of this Tesla created automaton, now’s your chance.

When an act of kindness causes thousands of the beasts to destroy the walls of Monanti City, it leaves culture vs. culture, mammal vs. reptile, friend vs. friend and father vs. daughter.

    You can’t really call atomic robo an ongoing can you? It does keep coming out, but not monthly or bi-monthly, and the volumes don’t even necessarily follow each other time-line-wise. Either way Best definitely describes it.
