First up! It’s time for a little audience participation. What y'do is, you write up an email, send it to firstname.lastname@example.org, and then we’ll respond to it in some way, and maybe even print the whole exchange in an upcoming issue of Atomic Robo! Ask us stuff, tell us we’re pretty and smart, or just say hello. Whatever. It’s fun for the whole family. Patrons get priority on all of these matters because they’re the cooooolest* people in the world.
Next. The Kickstarter! You guys are out of control. We’re over $50,000 U.S. American dollareedoos which means we’ve got to beef up the Task Force ULTRA Field Manual with even more pages. I started work on that material earlier this week and it turned into doctrine for various practices relating to the Vampire War? Did you know there was one? Me neither, but now it’s canon and I want to do a Real Science Adventures series about it at some point.
Anyway, spoiler alert, you guys are still throwing cash at us. Which is just as well, since there’s stretch goals a’plenty lined up. The next one is at $55k and that’ll get you a third postcard drawn by one of our radical comics artist friends as well as two more pages of bonus material pulled from The Secret Files of Dr. Dinosaur.
But that ain’t all that’s happening! We talked with the good people at Evil Hat Productions, makers of the Atomic Robo Action Science Roleplaying Game, and they’ve agreed to help us out with yet more rewards. We added two new tiers so you guys can get all the Atomic Robo RPG goodness that exists in the universe. Check ‘em out...
At $115 you get the hardcover of Atomic Robo and the Ring of Fire, the softcover of the Task Force ULTRA Field Manual, both of them as PDFs, all the stretch goal postcards, and every Atomic Robo RPG product that exists: the main book, the supplement for playing as Majestic 12 agents, and a set of 12 Atomic Robo themed Fate Dice.
At $175 you get the hardcover of Atomic Robo and the Ring of Fire, the hardcover version of the Task Force ULTRA Field Manual, the hardcover version of the Tesladyne Field Guide (2013 edition), PDF versions of all of the above, the postcards, and every Atomic Robo RPG product that exists: the main book, the supplement for playing as Majestic 12 agents, and a set of 12 Atomic Robo themed Fate Dice (whew).
Finally, Atomic Robo and the Temple of Od #2 hits comic book stores today. Hit up your local shop, grab a copy, and be sure to add “Anything that says Atomic Robo!” to your pull list if you haven’t already done that for some reason. Or, if you prefer to read comics on your electromatic devices, there's always your pal comiXology.
