You can now pre-order both the first and second issues of Atomic Robo and the Spectre of Tomorrow. Head to your local comic shop or grab 'em from your favorite online store. As usual comiXology versions will be available day and date with the print versions.

As usual, if you'd like to support Atomic Robo by throwing money at us but you aren't into owning individual issues, you can always check out our online store. 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.

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 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.

Hey, folks!

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, 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.

Check it out. You can pre-order a whole bunch of the upcoming Real Science Adventures comics starring The Flying She-Devils and The Sparrow right now. It's true! Just head on down to your favorite local or online shop.

Here's #3, and #4, and #5. The sixth and final issue isn't available yet, but stay tuned!

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.



Our Patrons have been chewing on this and more for a while now. They're the best people in the world.

Consider this your final warning, Virginia. Scott and I will be making our first appearance at Tidewater Comicon this weekend, May 13th and 14th!

We'll have floppies, hardcovers, and IDW editions of Ring of Fire and Temple of Od! Plus whatever else we can shove into our cars and haul on over. Scott has opened up his commission list for the show. All you got to do is PayPal fifty Earth dollars to, tell him what you'd like SINGLE FIGURE ONLY and then come pick it up at the show! Look for us in Artists Alley at Table 819. Here is a map to guide your travels.

And here is the most important part of that map super deluxe ZOOMED UP.

We hope to see you there!

Hey. Did you know we’re gonna be in Chicago at C2E2 from April 21st through the 23rd? You’ll find us in Artists Alley. We’ve taken over E-16, E-17, and E-18 along with our friends Ngozi, Tessa, Yuko, and Ananth!

Scott is taking pre-orders on single figure sketch commissions! Here’s what you do: PayPal $50. In the comments/notes section just let him know you’d like him to draw. Remember, single figure! If you don’t specify anything, you’ll get a Robo doing something. Anyway all you have to do is drop by our table at any time during the show and tell us your name. PRESTO you got a sketch! We’re asking for the cash up front to compel you to get the thing you want!

Here is a handy + dandy map!

Come on by, grab some books, get some signatures on them, it’ll be a hoot. We’ll see you there.

A Brief History of the Grand Unified Theory. It’s a big read for an internet article, but worth your time if you’d like to step away from the horror show of our political landscape for a few minutes. Also you could learn some stuff or whatever.

Kenya’s BRCK. This is the future cyberpunks want.

How DeepMind Helps AI Learn Faster. One weird AI memory trick human resistance fighters hate.

Detective X revealed. This is the sort of thing I’m thinking about when I say that history is a goldmine filled with amazing characters.

These Strange Science posts are made possible thanks to our smart and good looking Patrons. You can be one too! It'll get you access to my PROCESSING blogs where I talk about, uh, the process of being a professional comic creator. Each week I tackle a topic that cropped up while doing the work and then talk it out.

Right now we're mere dollars away from funding some extra fiction by yours truly. I'm working on two stories right now: a swordswoman's quest for revenge and something to do with space pirates who lean closer to Bertie Wooster than Martian Blackbeard.

Supersonic Jets Are Back! Maybe!

The Whales are Organizing. And, I mean, who can blame them? With luck they are summoning a dread lord of the deep, sea or space, don’t care which, to bring the end of all things.

The one and only time you could doubt climate change. It was the first time we’d done a big ol’ survey of worldwide climate data. And even then warming trend was obvious. But, hey, it’s the first time this sort of thing was done. The prudent course of action at that stage is to note the irregularity, but not to panic about it yet, and to keep an eye on climate data going forward to see if it was a blip or a problem. Spoiler alert: fifty years of climate surveys have confirmed it’s a catastrophic problem.

Juice Jacking. Not, strictly speaking, new, but worth keeping in mind for those of us who spend too much time in airports.
