It's played with a bit, though, with the intervening pages reminding us that Robo's baseline for "exciting" is a bit unusual in that for him UsefulNotes/NikolaTesla attempting to pierce the subatomic veil with giant arcing electrical machines is an everyday occurrence.

* DVDCommentary:
** Sort of. The website has pages of writer Creator/BrianClevinger and artist Scott Wegener commenting on their issues over instant messenger ([[http://www.atomic-robo.com/?p=187 here is the page for issue #1]]), doing such things as mocking the early art, arguing over how Helsingard should have been more obviously not-Nazi and pointing out that [[ImproperlyPlacedFirearms they gave Germans English guns]].
** As of volume seven, Clevinger and Wegener have been doing a segment called ''[[http://nerdyshow.com/atomicrobo Atomic Robo: Nuts and Bolts]]'' on the Nerdy Show podcast. They and the interviewer go through each issue as it comes out and discuss where certain ideas come from, their writing process, and how Scott never looks at Brian's scripts.

*** ''The Nicodemus Job'' has Terazin Berikos, a crime lord.SleazyPolitician who wormed his way into a position where he could legally confiscate anything he wanted and hold it for ransom. [[spoiler:But then the heroes find that their client, Archimedes Vasilakas, is equally corrupt.]]

* JustifiedCriminal: Iskander and Sofana are this in ''The Nicodemus Job''. Iskander is a scribe who moonlights as a forger that manufactures passports and other documents to help poor refugees gain citizenship. Sofana runs a gang of former StreetUrchins and trains them to be proper thieves and keep them off the streets. Lucky for both of them, when Nicolas meets them in flashbacks, he not only chooses to look the other way, but tells them how to make their schemes airtight.


''[[http://www.atomic-robo.com Atomic Robo]]'' (written by Creator/BrianClevinger, of ''Webcomic/EightBitTheater'' and ''Literature/NuklearAge'' fame) is a comic about, well, Atomic Robo, a robot built by UsefulNotes/NikolaTesla in the 1920s. Given citizenship by the US government in exchange for missions against [[StupidJetpackHitler Nazis and other similar scumbags]], he later started Tesladyne, a high tech organization devoted to fighting really weird evil and advancing human knowledge. Along with his elite team of Action Scientists, he travels the world (and further) fighting things on the fringes of human knowledge.

In addition to the main series, there's a spinoff called ''Real Science Adventures'', which features side characters in non-Robo-related stories. These characters include the Sparrow, a lineage of British spies; the Centurions of Science, an adventuring group that Tesla was a part of before building Robo; and the Flying She-Devils, an all-female crew that fights sky pirates post-WWII.
