Atomic Robo

Monday 8 February 2021
In February 2021 we presented the Atomic Robo Bundle, with nine complete .PDF graphic albums of the Eisner Award-nominated Atomic Robo comic series from Tesladyne LLC plus the 2014 Fate-based Atomic Robo RPG from Evil Hat Productions.

In 1923 Nikola Tesla unveils a robot with automatic intelligence: Atomic Robo! Granted full American citizenship in 1938 after a secret military operation, Robo founds Tesladyne, a two-fisted think tank that explores the fringes of scientific inquiry. After decades of high-octane, full-contact hypothesis testing at the edge of human knowledge, Robo and the Action Scientists of Tesladyne are the go-to defense force against the unexplained.

Created in 2007 by Brian Clevinger and Scott Wegener, Atomic Robo has been online since 2015 at atomic-robo.com. There the creators post Robo’s century-spanning adventures, supported by a Tesladyne Patreon campaign and eight successful Kickstarters. There’s giant monsters, rogue agencies, underground cities, trans-dimensional vampires, one particularly annoying dinosaur, and lots of explosions. (Lots of explosions.) Atomic Robo reads like the Ghostbusters, Indiana Jones, Buckaroo Banzai, and Rocketeer movies crammed into a robot who wears pants. Jump in anywhere — each graphic album is a self-contained story, so you can read them in any order.  

There were seven titles in our Starter Collection (retail value $70) as DRM-free .PDF ebooks, including Evil Hat’s complete 322-page Atomic Robo RPG rulebook based on Fate Core (previously presented in our November 2015 Bundle of Fate 3), three Tesladyne graphic albums (Atomic Robo and Other Strangeness, The Ghost of Station X, and The Shadow From Beyond Time), and Action Science resources like the Tesladyne Field Manual and FM-Ultra Field Manual — and behold the pulpy fruit of a vastly superior reptilian intelligence in Dr. Dinosaur’s Time Travel Guide!

Those who paid more than the threshold (average) price also got our entire Bonus Collection with seven more titles worth an additional $68, including the Atomic Robo RPG supplement Majestic 12; four more Atomic Robo graphic albums (The Ring of Fire, The Savage Sword of Dr. Dinosaur, The Spectre of Tomorrow, and The Temple of Od); and two collections of the Robo companion comic Real Science Adventures: Flying She-Devils in Raid on Marauder Island and The Nicodemus Job.

Ten percent of each payment (after gateway fees) went to this Atomic Robo offer’s pandemic-related charity, Direct Relief. Direct Relief gets protective gear and critical care medications to health workers, with emergency deliveries to medical facilities across the US and to regional response agencies across the world.
