Continúan las aventuras de Atomic Robo, esta vez durante la Segunda Guerra Mundial y su enfrentamiento con, como no, malvados científicos nazis y sus terribles creaciones.
Volvemos a encontrarnos con un cómic muy disfrutable, que no se toma en serio a sí mismo. Pero claro, si de lo que hablamos es de un robot inteligente alimentado por energía atómica construido en los años 30 por Nikola Tesla, ¿qué otra cosa podríamos esperar?
Me lo he pasado bien leyéndolo pero lo he disfrutado menos que el vol
This is the second trade paperback for Atomic Robo, a wonderful comic about a robot designed and built by Nikola Tesla. I'm not much of a comics reader and even less of a comics buyer, but this series won me over with one of its Free Comic Book Day releases and I'm slowly working my way through the TPBs. This one is entirely stories set in World War II, with Robo working for the Allies, and is consequently a bit darker and less whimsical.

I enjoyed it, but the stories didnt seem to be as well-con

Atomic Robo is back, and this time he's out to punch Hitler's clock.

Picture Hellboy as an atomic powered robot built by Tesla. In this collection, he's fighting in World War 2 against Nazi mecha, bio-engineered brutes, and weather machines. It's two-fisted action, lovingly illustrated, full of fun and adventurous, and I'd probably recommend it to anyone.

Time to order the next volume.

I think I'm suffering from not having the first volume. I just felt kinda lost. D: But the character design is rad!

Another great adventure. This one follows Tesladyne's Atomic Robo through WWII. He is on a mission to stop giant walking tanks so that the invasion of Sicily can proceed. Watch as he and Britain's top secret agent, Sparrow, fight against mutated Nazi supermen in an attempt to stop the special weapons program of the Nazis. In the final adventure, Robo leads a small force of British soldiers in an attempt to put a stop to the most devastating weapon the Nazis have, one that they will use in a last ...more

Atomic Robo: The Dogs of War is a great book that plays with the concept of Robo as this long lived robot created by Tesla and tossing him into World War II. The book is the same sort of adventure we'd expect from Robo after reading Volume 1. He's battling Nazis and trying to thwart them from developing super weapons. For two stories he joined by a reluctant female partner.

What makes the book work is that the writer and the artist both have a love for the era that comes from their grandfathers a

In many ways, Atomic Robo is very similar to Mike Mignola’s Hellboy as it deals with a non-human protagonist living in a world populated by humans that frequently misunderstand him or seek to use him in some manner. Unlike Mignola, series creator Brian Clevinger doesn’t mine fables, fairy tales and myths for his inspiration but pop culture and the mythology of the American experience. Throughout the series Robo finds himself facing giant ants straight out of the 1954 B-movie classic “Them!,” Naz ...more

This is another solid collection of Atomic Robo stories, with the clean artwork, fast pace, good-natured humor, and explosive action that I'm learning to expect from this title. These stories are all set in Europe in WWII, and they're everything they should be, with big machines and a little espionage and an incomprehensible Scottish soldier saving the day from time to time. Robo, our hero, is still wisecracking and indestructible and relatively sane within the delightful madness that surrounds ...more

The second volume of Atomic Robo, set in a single narrative arc during WWII, while still fun and fast-paced, wasn't as compelling as the first volume. It certainly sets up the conflict for a long-running villain arc, but the writing didn't feel quite as tight and the plot itself wasn't sewn together quite as well as I would have hoped.

But it was still fun. I enjoyed the banter between Robo and Sparrow - and the Scottish commando was so perfect it was hard not to laugh out loud.

This one is not as *fun* as other Atomic Robos I've read. A lot of times it meanders pretty close to "say a quip and then get punched or smash something" for a bunch of panels in a row. This can sometimes work but it usually requires and extreme string of luck on quip-writing.

It just seemed to lack some of the wacky zing that usually accompanies the whole backbone of the story. Nazi Frankensteins and walking tanks aren't as played out as zombies, but . . . .
Jul 14, 2011 Mike rated it really liked it  ·  review of another edition
It feels a little more like Robo is a hero that can't lose (though he sure gets into a pickle) - but I don't entirely care. The storytelling is well-executed - Clevinger actually believes his audience has a brain to fill in some details, and is interested in following a mystery.

That Clevinger can construct suspense and mystery here is a continued pleasure - but the personality of Robo is the true gem.

However, I must return to the "never loses" aspect here. In volume 1 Robo was vexed by his own M

Another excellent installment in the saga of Atomic Robo.

Seriously, this is just a fun read, across the board. This volume is mostly about Robo's escapades in World War Two. We get neat characters (Nazis and otherwise), dire threats, excitement and, most importantly, great dialogue and a fun story.

You can't go wrong with a robot battling Nazis!

A lot of fun, just like the first one, but the World War II setting, combined with the heartfelt thanks to WWII vet grandfathers by the creative team, gives this one a bit of a bounce over the last one. It's still got plenty of the wacky, from the over-the-top Scottish accent of the character based on Clevinger's grandfather to much of Robo's dialogue, and there's a lot of action and fun, but... there's also some poignant moments.

The post-war finale with Robo's nemesis is nice, quiet, effective

I forgot how great this series is, haven't read it since it originally came out 5 years ago. Need to go back and re-read all the old Robos.

Helsingard as an archnemesis kinda got dropped since this book though huh? Probably for the best, Dr. Dinosaur and Majestic-12 make for much funnier and/or interesting villains anyway.

It's been a while since I read the first collection (which I really enjoyed) but Atomic Robo really doesn't require any prior knowledge. This time we get a series of stories from WWII which sort of flow though seem a little disjointed (saying something for AR). The art is brilliant throughout and again, fantastically coloured. I thought that though fun, it was less funny this time round (probably reflected the era and events in which it's set), with glimpses of the previous humour only really cr ...more

Volume two was an all around step up from volume one. Robo gets two side characters that actual stand out as well as a new old nazi villain that comes off alot better than the first one. I really hope Scottie comes back, I love his and Robo's interactions.

A friend lent me every volume of Atomic Robo the other day, and I've already devoured them all. This is what Comics are supposed to be -- witty, pulpy, perilous without being dour, and thoroughly suffused with adventure and fun. Who knew the schmuck behind 8-Bit Theater (which I loved, admittedly) would turn out to be one of the modern masters of comic writing? Get ready for, like, 9 five-star reviews.

What if the Nazi army had Imperial walkers? Or creepy frankendroids with massive upper bodies teetering on impossibly tiny legs? Oh Atomic Robo. A silly book, but I gave it an extra star for the utterly delightful Scottish commando James "Scottie" Milligan.

this is a really nice book with really nice illusion work in it. this book involves a lot of action and humor in it and the visuals also help you understand more what the book is talking about

I bought his book and read it before I got the first one, but this volume rocked! The whole deal with Atomic Robo being a civilian of the United States reminded me SO much of Adam Link Robot. But unlike Adam Link, who completely refused to serve in the military, Atomic Robo aids his strength and abilities to fight in World War II.

Jeez, I loved this so much. Robot stories like this don’t get enough credit. The art is great, the balance between humor and drama goes perfectly with the intense leve

Set entirely during the second World War, Atomic Robo battles the worst Nazi super-science (the most evil of the super-sciences) with two fists and one liners.

Real weak story, but Wegener's art is wonderful and Ronda Pattison is one fo the very, very few digital colorists that does a great, supportive job.

Atomic Robo is big, two-fisted fun! It combines sly humor and superhero adventure into a package that is smart and surprisingly addictive. Scott Wegener's art has grown on me and become irresistible. Robo started as a wisecracking, Hellboy-ish character (even treading some of the same eras and punch-em-out attitude as the big, red guy). But, over the course of the first two trade collections, he's developed into his own, idiosyncratic character. Brian Clevinger's writing is smart and sharp, and ...more

This is my second Atomic Robo book and I really love this character. The first book gave you a peek into his human side and the fact that Tesla gave him emotions when he created him. This second has that but really embraces some of the funny. This is for someone with an interest in past wars and not for someone who does not like fighting. Intended audience is Adult but a high schooler with these interests would also like this. Maybe a fan of wolverine during WWII.
