We’re Brian Clevinger and Scott Wegener and we’re the creators of Atomic Robo, an online comic about the adventures of a robot who is also a scientist. Each volume is a self-contained story or collection of stories about the incredible life of Atomic Robo.
(there’s also a spin-off series Real Science Adventures, check it out)
We’ve been making fancy hardcover editions of Atomic Robo with help from you and Kickstarter since 2014. Today we’d like to Kickstart a fancy hardcover edition of our newest book, Atomic Robo and the Spectre of Tomorrow!
In Atomic Robo and the Spectre of Tomorrow, Robo has to grapple with his greatest foe ever — The Jornada del Muerto Homeowners’ Association! Oh, and there’s freaky secret cyborg doppelgangers running around covertly overthrowing governments or something.
Also there’s these guys.
You can read Spectre of Tomorrow online right here to find out how it all goes down.
We’re going to make a fancy hardcover edition of Atomic Robo and the Spectre of Tomorrow. This will collect all five chapters of the story and include bonus features like a prologue, all-new story content, a cover gallery, notes from the creators, and more!
We’re also including Limited Edition Official Tesladyne Institute T-shirts as worn by Robo and his crew of Action Scientists. Behold!
And you can get all kinds of other goodies — PDFs, patches, print sets, and even some stuff that doesn’t start with the letter P like sketches, original cover art, and more!
The Hardcover — the complete story of Atomic Robo and the Spectre of Tomorrow, the prologue short story The Fungus Among Us, the all-new epilogue, The Secret Files of Doctor Dinosaur, cover gallery, alt cover gallery, concept art, and introduction by Chris Roberson.
The T-shirt — Featuring the new Tesladyne Institute insignia for all your action science needs. You might not be a robot but at least you can dress like one who happens to be very handsome. Limited Edition!
The Patch — Put that Tesladyne Institute insignia on, like, a cool jacket to make it 74% more cool.
Print Set — A collection of all new postcard-sized prints by some of our favorite artists. The higher our goal, the more you get!
Signed Bookplates — You slap these on the inside your book and by the transitive property you got a signed book!
Scott Sketch — Original art from Mr. Scott Wegener handmade just for you!
Original Page Art — Now’s your chance to own an original page of Atomic Robo art from the first nine volumes. Scott’s been working digitally ever since, so once these are gone, they’re really gone!
Original Cover Art — The one-of-a-kind original cover art for all five issue, the trade paperback cover, and the hardcover can be yours!

Here's how it works. The higher you push our total, the more goodies we pack into the Print Sets that are included in all physical reward tiers from the $55 level and above.
Risks and challenges
We've already made more than a dozen hardcovers. We're working with trusted partners from production to printing to storage to fulfillment.
Over the years we've seen just about everything that can go haywire in a campaign and it's never stopped us from delivering the goods.Learn about accountability on Kickstarter
