Crossover Cover: Atomic Robo and the Shadow from Beyond Time
Atomic Robo battles an eldritch horror that exists across time over the course of 83 years. Ro-Man appears outside Robo's office in the 1971 chapter. Robo’s transtemporal foe, though not named, is unmistakably the Great Old One Yog-Sothoth. Ro-Man is from the science fiction film Robot Monster. Although the film’s ending reveals its apocalyptic events were only a dream, Ro-Man is then shown coming out of a cave. Robo probably convinced Ro-Man to abandon his plans for conquest and join Tesladyne.
