Atomic Robo Heads to the Web Starting Wednesday
Right now it’s hip to bring webcomics to print, but starting this week Brian Clevinger and Scott Wegener‘s Atomic Robo is heading to the web. After seven years, the fantastic comic that doesn’t get enough love from folks is heading to being a full-time webcomic. You can find it starting this Wednesday 21 at Atomic-Robo.com.
The whole run, all nine volumes, will be online for free, and build to the tenth volume Atomic Robo and the Ring of Fire which should be released this Summer. That means not only will all future volumes be readable on the web, but also means thousands of pages of the existing material will be available for free too.
The entire first volume goes up on Wednesday, followed by a Monday/Wednesday/Friday update schedule. That’s full issues being put up three times a week.
Collected editions will remain in print and through digital services like comiXology. The material will be online first and then collected later for those who want it like that.
Reached for comment, Clevinger confirmed that the collected editions of Robo will remain in print and available through ComiXology: “New material will be free online first and collected into issues/trades through ComiXology for folks who wants ‘em like that. We’ll also print the new stuff as trades as, y’know, they get finished.”
The first volume, Atomic Robo and the Fightin’ Scientists of Tesladyne, will be available this Wednesday.
