As you may have noticed, Atomic Robo Vol.7 marks an historic change for Team Robo. In addition to my first stumbling attempts to type with body parts other than elbows, and Scott’s progress drawing with his feet, we had our first ever roster change on the creative team.
We would like to warmly welcome colorist Nick Filardi to the book, and if you are at all familiar with his other work you will know how mind blowingly lucky we are to be working with him. His credits are too numerous to list, but a few of my personal favorites are Powers, BPRD, Cross Bronx, and Godland. As an interesting aside, Nick was almost the colorist of Atomic Robo since Day One. It literally came down to a coin toss to decide between him and Ronda Pattison.
We hope you guys enjoy Nick’s work as much as we do. I still get goosebumps looking at that opening scene of Flying She-Devils #1!
I also hope you will join us in thanking Ronda for her work on the first six volumes of Atomic Robo, and in wishing her the best of luck with her other projects.
And finally, due to a snafu on our end, the cover Nick colored for 7.1 did not get used. Check it out right here.
The cover that did get used was colored by our good friend, Alex Small-Butera, one of the creators of Baman Piderman. Lucky for us, it was a great cover too. He really saved our bacon and colored that cover on his day off so we’d have something to put in Previews. Thank you, Alex! We’ll make sure to include both covers in the TPB with proper credit!
