    Set in the gangster era of the 1930's, we finally get to see Tesla and see his father / son relationship with Robo. Robo is straining to be a hero like the heroes of the radio serials he's obsessed with. So when he meets the mystery man, Jack Tarot, it cause a lot of friction with Tesla. There's a lot to love here. Robo is hilariously obnoxious. The art is fantastic. This is some of the best coloring you'll see in an independent comic. I like how we finally visit the rivalry between Tesla and Ed Set in the gangster era of the 1930's, we finally get to see Tesla and see his father / son relationship with Robo.

    I didn't think these guys could stretch their characters any further - that they'd just be stuck in the rut of where they'd been - but apparently I underestimate our creators. Robo as a wide-eyed child, desperate to enter a world of *adventure*, is at once a great new character and hilarious by comparison to the one we already know. Great story and great art as always - surprises continue to emerge into my view, but the quality of effort and execution are ever-present.

The FCBD issue at the end is particularly hilarious, not least of which for the reappearance of a beloved guest star. I cannot believe how much glee I get out of seeing Robo and Doctor Dinosaur's battle of wits - I can never entirely figure out if DD is actually beyond genius or completely moronic. The art is walking that hairs breadth line and never quite giving in.

    With Atomic Robo's long history (he was built by Nikola Tesla) creators Brian Clevinger and Scott Wegener have more than a 100 years to play around with telling stories.

    This volume moves a bit slower than the others, as a 7-year old Robo gets involved with a 1930's Gangsters and Vigilantes in a crime spree that brings the AC/DC conflict into new light. It's funny, but at a slower pace than previous volumes. It does have some great moments, though, and sets up some of the stories that occurred in later years (but earlier volumes).

Even if the main story wasn't strong, this volume would be worth picking up just for that story, where Atomic Robo is called in to judge a... 4th grade Science Fair. High speed hilarity ensues.

    The latest collection of Atomic Robo stories does not disappoint. This time, readers are treated to a story from the robot's early days, and we get to see him as a wide-eyed emotional adolescent, chasing adventures like the heroes in his beloved pulp stories.

    Not my favourite Robo volume - I find young Robo less engaging than his grown up self - but still, lots of fun. Seeing Tesla in more than a flashback was grand, too! It was a shame that new adventurer Jack Tarot had to spend most of his on-panel time being annoyed by Robo, but he and his daughter were fun too. I'm not sure about the romance sub-plot, though; if Robo were a human character underplaying it like this would be great, but I felt like it deserved more attention - especially since the Not my favourite Robo volume - I find young Robo less engaging than his grown up self - but still, lots of fun.

I'm not sure about the romance sub-plot, though; if Robo were a human character underplaying it like this would be great, but I felt like it deserved more attention - especially since the story spans a year or so, giving lots of room to explore. Instead, it just vanishes once the main story is over, unresolved and unexplained. To be honest, I liked but didn't love this storyline, and probably would have given three stars - except that Dr. Dinosaur showed up in the bonus Free Comic Book Day story, and livened things up no end. Still my favourite character of all time, and the FCBD story is a great one-shot with a lovely coda. More of all the characters in this story, please!

    As always, Atomic Robo is a rollicking good read. Deadly Art of Science is a bit slower, a bit more low key, than some of the other books, focusing on Robo's sometimes-strained relationship with his creator, Tesla, and introducing an early crime fighting mentor, Jack Tarot. Here we see Robo learning the basics of crimefighting and gunslinging. There's a kind of weird relationship thing going on with Tarot's daughter. How do you kiss a robot with no mouth?

The best part of the book is the Free Comic Book Day one-off included at the end. I love Dr. Dinosaur so much I can't even stand it.

    I was a bit worried that they might start lagging with the terrificality, but it's still going full bore. This is a flashback to Robo's early days, and it's fun to see him as the less-than-competent neophyte battling thugs and the evil Edison. As soon as I finished this I sent an email to Scott Wegener asking if there will be a large-format hardcover of Atomic Robo released any time soon, and he said one will be out in December. I now know the first item on my Christmas list! I was a bit worried that they might start lagging with the terrificality, but it's still going full bore.

    A very solid origin story for Robo. It's nice to see so many different elements (pulp vigilantism, robots, the war of currents, real world scientists, love, mystery, etc.) come together so well. The art is also top knotch. The Free Comic Book Day 2011 issue kicks this book up to five stars. It's fantastic! A very solid origin story for Robo.

    Still really enjoyed it, but this one was a slight step back from the quality of the previous volumes. It was the first of the series to have a continuous storyline all in one time and place, which isn't a knock against it all on its own...it's just that the climax boiled down to cheerleading for Tesla (again) and turning Edison into a two-bit villain (again) which doesn't take a lot of creative depth. Plus a few unoriginal jokes about gun laws in America (that aren't even accurate...) elevated Still really enjoyed it, but this one was a slight step back from the quality of the previous volumes.

Plus a few unoriginal jokes about gun laws in America (that aren't even accurate...) elevated the political slant above the story itself. Nevertheless, the quality of the artwork was good, and the jokes and dialogue were good. The love dynamic between Robo and Helen was a new direction, and presents its own complications, much like the best elements of the previous volumes have done. I'm excited to read volume 6.

    This review has been hidden because it contains spoilers. To view it, click here. While reading the first four volumes of Atomic Robo I kept hoping to see more of Tesla. While I'd still like to see more, it was great to have a story where he makes an appearance and contributes in a big way (take that Iron Man!).

    How did Robo go from science to Action Science? What was Edison talking about in the fourth collection, Atomic Robo & Other Strangeness? Who is Robo's favorite Western hero? And has Robo ever known love? These questions and more are answered in Atomic Robo and the Deadly Art of Science! What I find most fascinating is that some of the smallest things in these early comics are actually seeds for much later stories. Also, I am really digging the Dr Dinosaur pages at the end of these collections. How did Robo go from science to Action Science?

    Tesla vs. Edison Atomic Robo pokes fun at the traditions of pulp and comics fiction - while also offering some original ways to approach the genre. Robo, himself, is a humorous and sarcastic robot who is always questioning the science behind pulp fiction, pointing out its absurdities, but reveling in them at the same time. Perfect for adults and children at different levels. More than worth the cost. Try it if you have any imagination.

    The first volume of Atomic Robo that has a linear, completely cohesive chronological storyline, and though it may have been the non-linear storytelling that caught my interest at first, it was the character of Atomic Robo that made me stay, and that means getting an amazing origin story for our hero was soooo satisfying. Loved every minute of this.

    Atomic Robo and the Deadly Art of Science, the fifth and latest installment (2011) of the adventures of Nikola Tesla's wisecracking robotic action scientist, takes us all the way back to the 1930's, when Robo is a young lad eager to get out of Mr. Tesla's lab and start living. In this volume, Atomic Robo gets tangled up with Jack Tarot, crime-bustin' vigilante, and in the process learns how to put the "action" into action science.

In this volume, Atomic Robo gets tangled up with Jack Tarot, crime-bustin' vigilante, and in the process learns how to put the "action" into action science. The mystery is good fun, and the chemistry between Robo has with Tarot and Tarot's daughter Helen works very well. If you haven't read any of the first four volumes of Atomic Robo, fear not, as each - while in continuity with the others - is self-contained, and, in fact, this volume makes for an excellent starting point, as it's the chronologically earliest complete story featuring Atomic Robo. Clevinger's writing is its usual excellent combination of amusing sarcastic wackiness and (oh, if only other comics had this much) character depth. Wegener's art is also up to his high standards, able to capture both the fun of the action sequences and the tenderness of the character interaction. In addition to the main story, there's also a bonus feature - the inclusion of the Atomic Robo Free Comic Book Day 2011 comic, featuring the return of Dr. Dinosaur. You can also find this story online, along with other past Free Comic Book Day offerings, at the official Atomic Robo site if you want to sample the goods, but it's inclusion in the collected volume is welcome. If you're an Atomic Robo fan, well you should have read this comic already, and if you aren't yet, this is a perfect place to start. You'll be glad you did.

    Yep, this is just as much fun the second time as it was the first. I find I'm getting more out of these graphic novels because I'm able to read them more slowly, look at the backgrounds a little more rather than being caught up in the new, in the adventure (not that I'm not still!). So that's a nice thing. Review as of May 26, 2012 I really enjoy this volume!

I really feel like this collection picked up from the last one, bringing back what I love about the series, especially the snappy writing. I was reading it in transit and grinning like a fool because I was trying not to laugh out loud. It's definitely a great one and probably a good place for any newcomer to start. Too funny!

    After the antics of the first few volumes you can be forgiven for thinking that that is Atomic Robo's only trick. "The Deadly Art of Science" proves however that this story is capable of being more serious, albeit with a helping of humor.

    Read via ComiXology Unlimited, and well worth the time. We get to see a young Robo in action, training with a Mystery Man named Jack Tarot, and generally causing havoc in a variety of ways. We also finally get to see Nikola Tesla, and Clevinger indulges himself in a final battle between Tesla and Edison that hits all kinds of notes in regards to both of them.

    This is actually my favorite volume of the series. Young Atomic Robo is a lot more spunky, fun, and headstrong. The Hellboy influence does shine through a little more when dealing with young Robo, but considering I enjoy that style of writing, I'll roll with it. I also enjoy the Edison/Tesla rivalry that is the foundation of the conflict here. The art, as usual, is simplistic and sparse but gets the job done.

    I didn't find Atomic Robo and the Deadly Art of Science as compelling as other volumes, and I would say this is probably one of the weakest in the series. I'm not exactly sure why - it was still fun to read, but I didn't feel as close to the side characters as in other volumes. It was interesting to see Robo's "formative years", as it were, and the influences that affected the science hero he becomes.

    In the 1930s, a young Atomic Robo joins forces with masked vigilante Jack Tarot to investigate a series of mysterious thefts. A great story and a fun pulp pastiche, though I think the language is "off" sometimes (kung fu was virtually unknown before the 1970s, so I doubt Robo would reference it). And the Nikola Tesla is Good, Thomas Edison is Evil aspect is really heavy-handed, otherwise this would be a four.

    I love young Robo's 'cursing'. "Holy socks! Oh, crumbs! Applesauce!" Also, Nikola Tesla gets to be pretty bad-ass. And Robo's pretty obnoxious when he's trying to learn how to be an action hero! Nikola and Robo's interactions are always the best. Favorite quote from the Free Comic Book Day issue: "THIS IS THE SOUND OF BULLETS KILLING YOU!!!" I love young Robo's 'cursing'. "Holy socks!

    I thought I'd read the previous volumes of this awesome comic, but apparently not. Even with minimal context, it easy to jump right in and follow along, functioning as a stand-alone adventure within the established continuity. Funny, sharp, great art and some of the most endearing characters in contemporary comics. I thought I'd read the previous volumes of this awesome comic, but apparently not.
