Brian Clevinger mentioned over at the Atomic Robo website, that his and Scott Wegener’s creation is going to get the animated treatment.  Heading up the project is The Fictory, a Lancaster, Pennsylvania based writing group.

About Atomic Robo: Last Stop
This time around, Robo will be getting in to big trouble on screen. Atomic Robo: Last Stop will be a fully animated extension of the already vast Atomic Robo universe. This new short film will bring fan favorite characters to life in a traditionally produced, digital animation. “While Atomic Robo: Last Stop isn’t a direct adaptation, we’ve paid very close attention to the Graphic Novels and are determined to stay as true to the subject material as humanly possible. People love Robo too much for me to try and mess with the formula,” said director Joseph W. Krzemienski.
Every effort was made to retain the Atomic Robo “feel” fans have come to love. Series writer, Brian Clevinger, was tapped to pen the first draft of a script for a whole new adventure. Fictory artists Joseph W. Krzemienski, Jeff McComsey and Dominic Vivona paid extremely close attention to series artist, Scott Wegener’s approach to the character and art direction. Series colorist Ronda
Pattison’s style was very influential in nailing down the color pallet. Even Jeff Powell’s thoughtful use of font and color aided in the overall design process.

I’m both excited and frustrated by the news.  Excited because there will be more Atomic Robo goodness on the way, but frustrated because my schedule didn’t free me up to get to it first.

    Oh I don’t know how to feel about this…Will the quality be good enough, how will one feel about the voice they choose to give him?…so many worries.

    Mmm, I’m sure their Robo will sound completely different from the voice I have in my head (which is vaguely similar to Billy West’s Richard Nixon voice on Futurama).

    Nonetheless, I am very excited.
