Atomic Robo Kickstarter Funded In Two Hours

The Kickstarter for Brian Clevinger and Scott Wegener’s Atomic Robo has already blew past the initial goal of $7,500 in only two hours. The first series, Atomic Robo and the Fightin’ Scientists of Tesladyne,  started in 2007 and received an Eisner nomination for “Best Limited Series”. Six subsequent series have come up all staring the Nicola Tesla created robot with “Automatic Intelligence”.

AtomicRoboThe Kickstarter page was not for a new comic series, but rather for a special book The Tesladyne Field Guide that includes such topics as

  • How To Deal With Errant Dinosaurs
  • So You’ve Got An Evil Twin
  • Coping With Alternate Realities
  • Lightning Gun Maintenance

FieldGuideThey have a wide variety of rewards offered, but the all inclusive pack comes at $500 donations and includes too much to list, so I’m going to borrow their graphic:

Clevinger said they weren’t ready to launch today nor prepared to be funded in two hours,  but couldn’t pass up starting on Nicola Tesla’s birthday. They are working now on stretch goal rewards and will post that information as they become ready.
