Tonight, after a long time of not reading together, we read Atomic Robo V1 #6; the end of the first miniseries, and the second part of the Unearthed story, where Robo fought his old enemy Helsingard. The fight was underground, and his friends, the Action Scientist (including Jenkins) where captured.
Robo wasn't doing very good in the fight; all his plans were being thwarted by Helsingard. In the end, Jenkins wasn't actually captured (the other Action Scientists thought one of the machines had eaten him), and he helped Robo defeat Helsingard. Helsingard's brain was in a robot; but it ended up splattering itself against a wall. However, this wasn't the end, as we're shown that in Iceland, Helsingard had other brains and robot bodies ready.
In the short backup story, we see how Robo meets Jenkins. Jenkins is the last survivor from an attack by vampires from the vampire dimension. Robo saves him, and they get out of there, guns blazing. This was a very good comic; both stories, I liked both the writing and the art. My favorite part was when we saw that Hellsingard had a backup plan, and something named "Projekt: Vormachtstellung", which apparently means "Project: Supremacy". That is a bit worrying... but that's a tale for another time... next up in this blog, something from DC Comics... and the next indie book we read will be Doctor Who.
Professor Dinosaur out!
