Here’s what you guys can look forward to from Team Robo in the new year!
All New Super Rad Merch: I’m not at liberty to divulge too many details, but the basic idea is: more T-shirts, more lady shirts, more products in general. Stay tuned!
Real Science Adventures (vol 2): Probably the first thing we’ll release is a new batch of RSA. This time it’s six issues of these guys. The first three issues are one shots focusing on different parts of the team as they encounter what appears to be an ever more vast conspiracy. The last three issues unite the Centurions against the full force of a threat that looms over the entire United States. Good times!
Atomic Robo: Last Stop: The animated short by The Fictory should be complete somewhere in the middle of 2013. They already retooled all existing footage to knock it up a notch. We got a few teasers recently and, uh, you’ll have to trust on this for now but, it will have been worth the wait.
Atomic Robo: the Action Science RPG: The release date for this is still in the air, but I expect to see it in late Q1 or early Q2. It will be jam packed with everything you need to run games set in the Atomic Robo universe. Or its past. Or an alternative to its past. Or any high adventure setting you care to throw at it! AR:ASRPG runs on a version of the new Fate Core system specifically tuned by Mike Olson to get right into the action and having a great time whether you’re a veteran roleplayer or a total newcomer. The game also features dossiers on half a dozen Bad Guy Factions and an expanded timeline that touches on events we won’t get to see in the comics for years.
Atomic Robo Free Comic Book Day 2013: This will come at you on May 4th. Because that’s when FCBD will be! We’re doing something a little different this time around. There’s no Dr. Dinosaur this year because…
Vol 8, ATOMIC ROBO AND THE SAVAGE SWORD OF DR. DINOSAUR: We’re giving you five issues of Dr. Dinosaur instead! This is by far the biggest and craziest adventure we’ve done. You guys seriously have no idea what you’re in for.
We could stop right there and 2013 would be the Atomic Roboiest year yet. But we can do even better than that.
If we don’t have any major crap ups in the first half of the year, then it would be entirely reasonable to see these projects pop up around November or December.
Real Science Adventures (vol 3): Another six issues and sticking to the longer story format of the second series. We can’t make up our minds about what this one should be though. Our choices at the moment are: The Legacy of the Sparrows, The Case Files of Jack Tarot, and a third thing I’m not sure how to summarize but I’m toying around with calling it A Shadow Without End.
Vol 9, Atomic Robo and the Knights of the Golden Circle: In which we pit Robo against a conspiracy older than he is!
