I've been taking a sketchbook to comic book conventions for years -- and I've gotten some truly amazing things -- but when this year's HeroesCon rolled around, I decided to start a new one with a theme. I st
The last time we checked in on The Fictory's animated "Atomic Robo: Last Stop" short film, based on Brian Clevinger and Scott Wegener's "Atomic Robo" series, the studio had just released a teaser that showcased (among other things) star Robo and his antagonist Helsingard lighting up and possibly preparing for battle.
