Review: Atomic Robo: Atomic Robo and the Ring of Fire

Atomic Robo: Atomic Robo and the Ring of Fire
Atomic Robo: Atomic Robo and the Ring of Fire by Brian Clevinger
My rating: 4 of 5 stars

It’s fucking volume 10. If you’re not already in at this point, then what am I going to tell you that will make you start at the proper point, which is 10 volumes back? And if you’re reading a review of volume 10 in a series, then I suspect you know damn well what you’re getting into.

I don’t love a ton of comics, and I love Atomic Robo. Even the volumes that are less good are still really good. They’re just not really, REALLY good.

Also, to the morons who rated this lower because you didn’t realize this was volume 10 in a series and thought it was a standalone (because it was published as Atomic Robo: Ring of Fire 1-5) I would like to better understand how you made use of the Goodreads tool to complain about this fact but not during the selection process. And how many pages in did you get before some alarm bells started ringing? Not only ringing, but sounded like a voice saying, “Hmm, I’m not entirely sure this is the beginning of this harrowing tale.”

I’m trying something new in not writing negative book reviews anymore, so maybe I’m taking this out on you all. But, I don’t know, pay attention. Use the tools at your disposal to figure things out.

Do you also refer to American Idiot as Green Day’s first album? Gah!
