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.
