Atomic Robo and the Spectre of Tomorrow #1 is now available for pre-order at your favorite local or online shop. It will be published in October so by the time it comes out you’ll have read a couple issues for free via our electric website machine.
Do you want your letters to appear in the print issue? Just send them on over to email@example.com and we can make it happen through an alchemical process best left undisclosed for safety reasons.
A super fun and cool way to support Atomic Robo is to buy the issues in print (locally or online) or digitally. Or maybe grab the trade paperback or hardcover collections to decorate your bookshelves. Or show your support directly by joining our Patreon and in return you'll get all kinds of bonus stuff like early access and behind-the-scenes goodies.
Remember those carefree days when the world was only imperiled by things like giant mutants from the sea or the occasional mad scientist dinosaur? Now it's 2017 and everything's horrible all the time! But that's why Atomic Robo is setting up the new Tesladyne Institute in the badlands of New Mexico's Jornada del Muerto desert with Sir Richard Branson's Spaceport on one side and Elon Musk's Solar Farm on the other. With neighbors like these, who needs to uncover an insidious plot that threatens the lives of everyone in the world?
The Diamond Order Code is AUG170529. That can be handy when ordering it from a local shop just so they don’t have to track it down themselves.
FREDCON is a one-day show up in Fredricksburg VA this weekend. And Atomic Robo's gonna be there! The doors are open from 10am to 7pm Saturday July 15th only. The whole thing goes down at the Spotsylvania Mall. Be there or be, uh, I dunno, somewhere else. It's your life do what feels right. But if you come by, which you obviously should, we'll have some books and prints and a general selection of knicknackery.
See you there!
Consider this your final warning, Hartford. Scott and I will be at Connecticon 2017, July 6 - 9. Don't call it a comeback, we've been here for years! Just not for a few years.
We'll have floppies for Temple of Od, hardcovers of almost everything else, and whatever doodads we can shove into our luggage. Scott has opened up his commission list for the show. All you got to do is PayPal fifty Earth dollars ($50) to firstname.lastname@example.org, tell him what you'd like SINGLE FIGURE ONLY and then come pick it up at the show! We'll be in the Online Media section on the Exhibition Floor with all the other cool internet people.
Been a while since I did one of these. For shame! But, hey, I was writing more comics, so that's a pretty good excuse, right?
DermalAbyss is an ink that reacts to body chemistry. Anyway, long story short, interactive tattoos.
16 Psyche is an unusually iron rich asteroid. Like 10 quintillion dollareedoos rich. Which is, for the record, more wealth than has been produced in all of human history combined. Just another reason to get serious about the Interplanetary Transport Network. Also, y'know, not turning the Earth into hellscape.
WALLABY is a telescope array that was already collecting 15 terabytes per second when it was only one-third finished. The rest of the antennae ought to be installed later this year.
MetaLimbs will turn you into a cyborg! Whoops, too late. I take the perhaps absurd view that we're already cyborgs. Yeah, that's right, all of us. How’s that? Well, we’re not used to thinking of memory, language, or culture as technologies, but they had to be invented and our use of them has vastly expanded the horizons of human ability. But, still, robot arms would be a welcome addition.

What's next for RSA?
Well, that's a secret. I can say this: it'll be the deepest we've gone into history, it'll be the furthest thing from Atomic Robo we've ever done, and yet it'll be immediately recognizeable as our particular brand of adventure.
Oh, what the hell, they can't fire me. Here's a little something for your eyes too.
