Atomic Robo and The Flying She-Devils of the Pacific #2 Review

Atomic Robo and the Flying She-Devils of the Pacific #2 CoverShort Version: Atomic Robo and the Flying She-Devils of the Pacific #2 is a fantastic character building for volume 7 of the two-fisted action scientist comic. Everything about Atomic Robo and the Flying She-Devils of the Pacific #2 is just great. The dialogue is just spot-on and it’s a fun issue from start to finish. Still, things really pick up at the end, and it looks like issue three (of five) things are going to start moving fast. The truth is, the dialogue is so much fun in this issue, you don’t even miss the action.

Atomic Robo and the Flying She-Devils of the Pacific #2 puts us back into the story of Volume 7 of the long-running series with Robo and the She-Devils trying to figure out what the things that attacked them in issue one were, exactly. This results in a thoroughly entertaining issue, with a band of pirates and an drunk old wise man making appearances. The dialogue in Atomic Robo and the Flying She-Devils of the Pacific #2 is just superb, with a great flow and a nice back-and-forth style with plenty of subtle humor and personality in the delivery. We get a much better look at the actual overall personality of the She-Devils, in particular, in Atomic Robo and the Flying She-Devils of the Pacific #2 and a pretty great scene where Robo finds out what has happened to his beloved plane. The facial expressions really popped for me in Atomic Robo and the Flying She-Devils of the Pacific #2, especially the scene immediately following the aforementioned reveal of what has become of Robo’s plane. The whole thing is great fun, and pretty light-hearted overall, but things start to get tense for the She-Devils and Robo at the end of the issue, leading into some action, presumably, at the beginning of issue 3. Still, Atomic Robo and the Flying She-Devils of the Pacific #2 does exactly what you want a second issue in a five-part series to do: it continues the build up of the characters so you are invested in them when things start to get real. And, as of the end of Atomic Robo and the Flying She-Devils of the Pacific #2, things definitely look like they’re starting to get real. In any case, if you haven’t started reading Atomic Robo yet, you can grab Atomic Robo and the Flying She-Devils of the Pacific #2 and the first issue and probably be able to figure out enough to be fine. There’s really just no excuse. It’s funny and has plenty of action to keep everyone entertained. Atomic Robo and the Flying She-Devils of the Pacific #2 is available from your local comic book shop right now for $2.99 or you can get it on Comixology.

  1. Atomic Robo is the best comic going today! But Robo’s eyes seem to be getting bigger and bigger. He is starting to look like an insect (and that frightens me)
