Atomic Robo Vol 6 #4
Written: Brian Clevinger

Colors: Ronda Pattison
Letters: Jeff Powell
Previously: Robo tried to save some astronauts in space. And then it went HORRIBLY WRONG. So, then Robo tried to get to the bottom of it only to find a big damn conspiracy with tanks and guns and stuff. This issue? He’s on the run and the fate of everyone in the world lay in the hands of a trucker and some HAM radio hobbyists. Seriously. Not buying ATOMIC ROBO comics is the biggest mistake of your life. Do something right for a change and pick up an issue. Start with this one if you have to. Your only regret will be lamenting what took you so long.

Starman Omnibus Volume 04
The acclaimed series STARMAN, starring a Gen-X super hero from the 1990s, is re-presented in high quality format, featuring spectacular art by Eisner Award winner Tony Harris.
In this volume, Starman stands shoulder to shoulder with heroes including DC’s Captain Marvel, Batman and many others.
First, in a story set in the 1940s, Ted Knight, the original Starman, works with Captain Marvel and Bulletman to clear himself of espionage charges.
Then, back in the 1990s, young Jack Knight, the new Starman, must capture the deadly Doctor Phosphorous before embarking on a mission into space to find lost hero Will Payton. And in a never-before-collected story, Starman teams up with Batman and Hellboy to rescue his father, Ted Knight, from neo-Nazis who have tapped into a mystical power source.

    Waow Rob on the podcast – made my Christmas.
    Merry X-mas to all.
    And now a little more serious talk about last weeks episode and the commentsection.

    Somebody was a little hard on Stephen and his DC bias, and Stephen was a bit sarcastik about it on last weeks show.
    I’m not trying to defend anyone, and I can’t talk for anybody but myself.
    The show you guys do is soooo awesome, and you are being so familier with you audience that it’s very easy for us spoilerites to fall into the trap that “we are part of the family” and therefor we can use the same tone as you guys use to each other.

    I know that I have fallen into that trap more than once – and I want to appologize if I have ever wronged any of you.
    I think it was hillarious when Matthew made “in sovjet russia” joke about my misspellings.
    I was not offendet when Rodrico said I was from Eastern Europe.
    And when Stephen mistook Norwegeans for Swedes in “The Thing”

    Love the show – pleace keep it up.

      *Or when Stephen mistook Norwegeans for Swedes in “The Thing”

      No worries, nerd on nerd hate is one thing, nerd on nerd gentle ribbing is another. And for the record I simply forgot that it was the Swedes that found The Thing in the ice. ;P

      It should also be stated that Stephen and I are both sarcastic as all hell in our day to day interactions, and together we form a Wonder Twin Power Vortex of snark that feeds upon itself and threatens to destroy all of reality with it’s mighty schadenfreude.

      As always, no offense was intended, and any found should be disregarded.

        Is it true that the Boom! Studios title “Snarked” is an unauthorized biography of you, Matthew?

          Is it true that the Boom! Studios title “Snarked” is an unauthorized biography of you, Matthew?

          Nope. You’re thinking of Blacklist Studios “KING!” Ah huh HAH!

        @no, no! No offence was taken. It was hillarious.
        My only point is that becaurse your tone to each other is so sarcastic and becaurse you obvious mean no offence. We spoilerites wan’t to join in on the fun.
        In a sort of backward way – when people is hard in the comment section or the forum it might be a sign af trust and familiarity.
        Does that sound sane or is it just pure BS?

    I’m just happy to see that Starman art again. Those were some of the greatest comic covers ever.

    So Stephen likes Batman. If someone likes comics they are sure to have an opinion on Batman.

    Perhaps a more pragmatic solution is to suggest some Marvel stories that need more attention.

    Maybe having polls with Spider-man and Batman analogues back to back is adding to the animosity.
