Ever since my brother in-law introduced me to Atomic Robo earlier this year it has quickly become one of my favorite Graphic Novels. A simple description would be Hellboy starring a sentient robot with jokes. But in a lot of ways Atomic Robo is still vastly different from Hellboy. Atomic Robo isn't as dark or moody. It is made to just have fun with mad science, flipping through time, and yes Lovecraftian monsters. Lovecraft even makes a very important guest appearance as do other historical figures. The Fictory is attempting to make a short animated film based off Atomic Robo currently called Atomic Robo: Last Stop. Judging by the sample they are staying true to the vision created by Brian Clevinger and Scott Wegener. Robo doesn't appear until near the end of this sample, but it certainly whets my appetite for the full length version.
