Atomic Robo and the Dogs of War #5

December 27, 2008

Atomic Robo: Dogs of War #5 (Red 5 Comics)
By Brian Clevinger, Scott Wegener & James Nguyen

With Atomic Robo captured by Skorzeny to power the newest Nazi superweapon, a remarkable rescue operation is put into motion. This is a fantastic conclusion to a great miniseries — the action is tense, there’s plenty of great humor at the right moments and in the right measure, and the art is especially sharp. I’ve really gotten to love Robo and his expanded cast. The back-up story, set some 40 years after the war, works as a fine epilogue to the whole series, giving Robo a chance to face off against a fierce enemy one last time. Without anything you would term as “action,” we’re treated to one of the best scenes in the entire series. That’s what makes this title work — the action is great, but there’s genuine character underneath to form the core of the series. This book was absolutely everything you could want out a comic for pure fun, pure energy, and pure excitement. I can’t wait to see more out of this character and this creative team.
