As the other reviewer noted, the similarities to Hellboy are manifest and it is not unfair to accuse the creators here of imitation. But this is not Hellboy lite. While Hellboy is a largely a supernatural story with elements of steampunk, Atmic Robo is all steampunk. Further, the tone is generally much lighter. While dramatic at times, Atomic Robo often leans toward the comical end of things, which I think is when it shines. It is entertaining stuff, although not particularly original. ( )
