Real Science Adventures

I was mucking about in the Atomic Robo Timeline page, and kind of by accident I located a couple side stories at the Real Science Adventures site. The main Robo staff came up with the story ideas and gave them to random print artists. The results “vary by mileage,” but they’re still worth reading if you want to learn a bit about the Robo universe. The first book has Houdini, Tesla, Westinghouse and Annie Oakley, among others, thwarting a plot to overthrow the budding U.S. government. The second book describes how the She-Devils acquired their flying fortress base. MPSD and PE are short 4-page one-offs that don’t contribute much. And last there’s the first 11 pages of Project Millipede, the Agent Sparrow spin-off story that’s fully hosted on Atomic Robo.com. Again, the artwork is all over the place, and the characters in RSA especially are almost unrecognizable from chapter to chapter. The dialog for the Raid pirates is hokey to the extreme but it’s still a fun adventure. Check it out.
