Crossover Covers: Atomic Robo and the Knights of the Golden Circle

Atomic Robo has spent the last fourteen years in the Old West after accidentally being transported there from June 2013. Robo, Doc Holliday, and Bass Reeves encounter the younger version of Robo’s foe Heinrich von Helsingard. Robo says, “Old colleague of mine, he used to say, ‘wherever you go, there you are.’ I think it works with whenever too.” In the epilogue, Secret Service Agents James West and Artemus Gordon discover the wreckage of Helsingard’s airship. Robo was transported to 1870 at the end of the miniseries Atomic Robo and the Savage Sword of Dr. Dinosaur. Robo’s old colleague is Dr. Buckaroo Banzai. James West and Artemus Gordon are from the television series The Wild Wild West, of course.
