    Reviews - Atomic Robo / Neozoic / Bonnie Lass Free Comic Book Day 2012 - nn

"Atomic Robo" 9/10; others, not so much - minlshaw
On a whim, I picked up last year's Atomic Robo freebie and found I absolutely loved it. The humor is very reminiscent of old school Cartoon Network fare like Dexter's Laboratory. I wasn't a regular viewer of that show, but I saw enough of it to have been entertained. If the goal of FCBD is to get people to start reading things they didn't used to read, they've succeeded because the next time I go to my LCS (which I think is going to be tomorrow), I plan on hunting down some Atomic Robo.

NeoZoic and Bonnie Lass were less appealing to me. Regarding the former, I'm just not that big on dinosaurs, my love for Jurassic Park and the Dinobots notwithstanding. Also, for just a few pages, there was way too much exposition about events that mean nothing to me. Bonnie Lass was more accessible and entertaining, but for that kind of story, I'm more apt to finish tracking down the Danger Girl comics I still haven't read.
