This series continues to contain it's momentum with yet another style of story. Again, a separate story in which the previous volumes need not be read but readers who have been following in order are given a nod with a couple of significant appearance of none other than Curtis, the Lighthouse Robot, and a short cameo by investigators Rod and Mike. A hundred years ago robots (then called metal men) were first being worked on by famous scientist Dr. Greenwood. Greenwood unfortunately went down on an ocean liner disaster along with his three indestructible men. Seventy years later one of them appeared out of the sea onto dry land and immediately shut down, he's been in Robot City's Museum ever since. But now evil Mr. Furniss has discovered another of the Metal Men and inadvertently turned on a communication signal. The first robot then takes off to find him. It is up to young scientist Sarah Cross and her robot assistant to track him down and eventually stop Mr. Furniss from his nefarious doings. Loved this issue! Again, it had everything you want in a comic, great story line, plenty of action, adventure and cool robots. The book is done in old-time comic book style with newsprint type pages (though thicker quality paper) and pre-'80s comic book illustrations. And we have a funny ending this time that made me giggle and look forward to volume 4.
