The Fellowship was fortunate enough to obtain a copy of ATOMIC ROBO: FLYING SHE-DEVILS OF THE PACIFIC #1 from Red 5 Comics. The story is by Brian Clevinger with art by Scott Wegener.
It's 1951 and Robo is flying a prototype jet over the South Pacific when he is attacked by rocket ships. A group of women wearing jetpacks come to his rescue and take him to their secret island headquarters known as She-Devil Island. Robo meets their leader and finds out why they are still out in the Pacific and who they are fighting. However, Robo may not be the only stranger on She-Devils’ Island...
FLYING SHE-DEVILS OF THE PACIFIC definitely has that retro vibe like THE ROCKETEER books. I like Scott Wegener’s art style. There is a sense of familiarity, yet a uniqueness to his art that I find kind of cool. This was a solid, fun and entertaining book to read with a some humor thrown in for good measure. I am looking forward to reading the upcoming chapters to see where this story goes.
ATOMIC ROBO: FLYING SHE-DEVILS OF THE PACIFIC #1 is in comic stores and available at www.red5comics.com.
