A modern comics masterpeice

on 7/15/2011

I was wary of this title at first. Much as I am a fan of the original HP Lovecraft stories, homages to C'thulu tend to take the subject matter too seriously and fall flat. I was even more anxious about the inclusion of Carl Sagan as a charachter. Never fear, though, this is Robo, and nothing is ever TOO serious. Somehow Brian manages, as usual, to strike the perfect balance between humor and drama, being neither too reverant or too irreverant with dear old Howard Phillip, and the bit with Sagan was possibly my favorite part. I was surprised to find that this was the true fulfilment of the potential that was Atomic Robo. I knew it could be just ever so slightly more than it was in the first volume, but I did not expect this volume to be the one that finally brought it to that level. The art continues to be brilliant, adapting seamlessly to fit the (increasingly surreal) needs of the story. While the stories remain almost surprisingly short, they all tie together in a way that is very satisfying to watch unfold (into impossible geometries, perhaps). It will be interesting to see if they can keep things going at this level, and I look forward to their future works with great anticipation.

Product Overview

It is 1926 when H.P. Lovecraft comes calling to warn Atomic Robo of imminent doom. But the Shadow From Beyond Time escapes into the future, intersecting with our world through the 20th century! The future and history of the universe hangs in the balance as Atomic Robo teams up with, uh, Atomic Robo in a last-ditch effort to protect reality itself!
