Ever wondered how to sneak a cart, a donkey, and five thieves into the Imperial Library of Constantinople to steal half a dozen heretical texts from the most secure vault of forbidden knowledge in the ancient world? Well, this is the comic for you!
The Imperial Library of Constantinople, home of the world’s largest collection of knowledge, sits inside a maze locked in a fortress under constant guard. It’s up to our crew of thieves and con artists drawn from across the Byzantine Empire to get in, steal four incredibly valuable texts, and escape without being caught or killed. Don’t worry, it only sounds impossible. It’s the crime of the century—the 11th century!
On the eve of the first Crusade, the fate of the world rests in the hands of a disgraced soldier, an assassin, an orphan, a scribe, and a thief who have no idea they’re pawns in a clash of civilizations. Heretical texts, ancient star maps, sacred geometries, and one impossible heist. The deepest dive into the history of Atomic Robo’s world starts right here!
Remember the old days when all you had to worry about were mad scientist dinosaurs or giant sea mutants with lasers? But not in 2017! Atomic Robo delves into the chaos that is modern America, where everything is horrible all of the time! But that’s why Robo is setting up the new Tesladyne Institute in the badlands of New Mexico’s Jornada del Muerto desert, with Sir Richard Branson’s Spaceport on one side and Elon Musk’s Solar Farm on the other. With neighbors like these, who needs to uncover an insidious plot that threatens the lives of everyone in the world?

Saving the world makes for strange bedfellows. For instance: when you’re up against a worldwide network of cybernetic doppelgangers, sometimes you have to team up with your oldest nemesis to stop them from killing everyone. Luckily, you can always trust a nemesis, so everything will be okay!
That secret cyborg plot to take over the world? Not so secret anymore! But, hey, Atomic Robo is hot on the case. He’s tracked the origin back to a familiar foe, but it looks like someone else got there first…
So there’s a secret army of cyborg doppelgangers out there and that’s not even the wildest part of this story! Old enemies, new faces, and a little Grand Theft Super Science with a side order of existential dread. Strap yourselves in, we’re gettin’ weird.
Just when you thought things couldn’t get any worse it turns out there’s a secret cyborg army that’s maybe attempting to establish a new global order. Remember the old days when all you had to worry about was an honest to goodness mad scientist dinosaur or, like, a bad guy with a laser gun?
Remember those carefree days when the world was only imperiled by things like giant mutants from the sea or the occasional mad scientist dinosaur? Now it’s 2017 and everything’s horrible all the time! But that’s why Atomic Robo is setting up the new Tesladyne Institute in the badlands of New Mexico’s Jornada del Muerto desert with Sir Richard Branson’s Spaceport on one side and Elon Musk’s Solar Farm on the other. With neighbors like these, who needs to uncover an insidious plot that threatens the lives of everyone in the world?
