A correction! The Triumverate aren’t real people, they’re grown up versions of fictional 19th century boy genius characters!

  1. Nice to see you do some Robo again. I agree with you that the art is not the same but the story is outstanding and you really should read from the start of this arc.

    I liked the Yonkers Devil story, me being somewhat new to Robo it was neat to see a story I did not know about and in issue #9 they had a Robo story “Robo and Goliath” (5 pages).

    All I know there is more Atom Robo out there that I need to find and read.
