If you don’t know by now, I am a huge fan of Atomic Robo, the comic book series from Red 5 Comics written by Brian Clevinger and drawn by Scott Wegener. I was very excited when it was announced that animation studio The Fictory would be working on an animated short based on the character and was even more excited when I saw some footage from it.
The film is called Atomic Robo: Last Stop, and while some work has been done on the project, finalizing it has been a bit of a problem. Now it’s time for me, and possibly you to chip in to help The Fictory complete production on the project by donating to their Kickstarter project.
You can go to the Kickstarter page now and learn more about the project as well as the rewards for the different pledge levels.
Update: (Imagine this in the voice of Robert Stack circa 1991) The kickstarter has reached its goal of $12,000 in one day! You can still donate to the project (at least at this time) and get in on the sweet swag that comes along with your donation.
Atomic Robo tells the story of a robot created by Nicola Tesla in the early 1900s. Robo goes on adventures, and with the help of his Action Scientists he stops all forms of evil, from Nazis, to extra-dimensional creatures, to megalomaniacal dinosaurs. It’s also one of the best series coming out these days and is a comic series you should be reading.
You can see the new trailer for Atomic Robo: Last Stop here below.
