Atomic Robo and the Ring of Fire HARDCOVER COLLECTION

$69,044

891

Atomic Robo follows the thrice Eisner Award nominated adventures of a robot adventurer through a century of sci-fi action. The print comic began in 2007 and last year we started publishing them online at atomic-robo.com. All ten complete volumes are available for free and we're uploading new pages from the eleventh volume every Monday, Wednesday, and Friday. And we add new pages to realscienceadventures.com every Tuesday and Thursday because we love you. 

And while getting tons of free comics is great, we know a lot of folks prefer a physical copy. For instance, our whole audience who supported us from the beginning! So, with the help of our maniacal fans and Kickstarter, we reprinted the first nine volumes as super fancy hardcover editions with all-new bonus content. Now, with the continued help of Kickstarter and maniacs, we'll print the tenth volume, Atomic Robo and the Ring of Fire, as a hardcover to match the original set!

But then we thought: that previous campaign was kind of a big deal. I mean, nine books, tons of new merch, and a complete revolution in our business plan. After all that, how can we get people excited for just one more book?

And then we thought: WE COULD MAKE A LIFE-SIZED PLUSH ROBO HEAD!

AND THEN THAT'S THE THING WE DID!

The Prototype
The Prototype

That's right, folks. It really is a life-size, 1:1 ratio, plush version of Robo's head as featured in the pages of (spoiler alert) The Ring of Fire! 

Kind of amazing, ain't it? I mean, we could've stopped there. 

But then we thought: why?

So, we're also making the Task Force ULTRA Field Manual.

not final cover
not final cover

Whereas the Tesladyne Field Guide is a collection of practical advice for surviving classic (if impossible) sci-fi scenarios, the ULTRA Field Manual provides, "a basic doctrinal discussion on the organization and operations of TFULTRA and contains compartmentalized information essential to the security of physical constants, sustainability of life upon the Earth, and stability of the Solar System as well as Alternative Minkowski-Viable Spaces (AMVS) local to or intersecting with the Solar System."

So, y'know, some nice light reading. And very good graphs.

 

We're offering hardcovers, signed items, postcards, stickers, posters, digital goodies, all kinds of stuff. Let's breakdown the reward packages.

 

Risks and challenges

The biggest risk is that we've never made a plush before. So, that's why we're partnering with the good folks at WeLoveFine for the design and production!

Beyond that:

The Ring of Fire is finished. All that remains is the production of any Secret Files of Doctor Dinosaur from Stretch Goals. And then to slap all the story and bonus pages into the layout templates we established in our previous campaign.

The Task Force ULTRA Field Manual is currently 33 - 50% written depending on how far we take it. We've enlisted Adam Jury for layout/design on this project. If you ever picked up the Atomic Robo RPG by Evil Hat Productions, Adam is the reason it looks so amazing.
