Dr. Atomic (first name Otto) was created by Larry Todd, whose other work in comix includes Tales of the Armorkins. He first appeared in some of the transient underground newspapers of the early 1970s, where his first task was to build his robot assistant. Dr. Atomic #1, published in 1972 by Last Gasp Eco-Funnies, reprinted those newspaper episodes, and added a couple of new adventures.
The character's back-story included having been a lieutenant in the Luftwaffe in 1941, which would make him a good deal older than most of his 20-something readers. (Another clue was his bald head and thick, white beard.) Still, he had more in common with Billy Kropotkin, the dope-smoking hippie next door, than with Hank the heavily armed redneck, next door on the other side. Billy and Dr. Atomic had one drug-addled sci-fi adventure after another, for six issues. The last came out in 1981.
