Eric needs to know he can trust Woody – and that means Woody needs to get a job, open a bank account, sign up for a library card, and do all the things a responsible adult does. But when a new gang of rogue mad-scientist super-criminals launch a wave of ROBO-CRIME, will Woody stop them…or join them? Plus – the return of EDISON’S RADICAL ACQUISITIONS?!
So now that Eric and Woody have stopped the militia and exposed Magnum Security, Eric needs to find a new job. He also wants to ensure that Woody has become more responsible. They’re all now living in a new apartment with Sixy Nine and the Goat, but Eric takes Woody out for a day to do “responsible grown up stuff.” They go to a library to get Woody a library card, then go to a hospital to donate blood, then go to a tailor to buy some business suits, and then they go look for jobs. Job-hunting proves to be the most difficult task, as Woody’s background and candor during interviews tends to scare off potential employers. Meanwhile, Sixty Nine is left at home with the Goat. Early, her fellow clone Detective Cejudo tried to convince Sixty Nine to come live with her and forget about Woody, but she declined.
But don’t think this issue is all mundane adult stuff, there’s also some action, as it opens with Quantum and Woody having to take on three people in giant robot suits who were on their way to rob a bank. Later, in prison, the people, who happen to be ex-NASA scientist, find themselves approached by Johnny 2, who wants to recruit them for the E.R.A. Eric and Woody split-up after a fight, and then Eric gets a call from an associate at Magnum about a freelance security job guarding the Smithsonian. Meanwhile, across town, Woody has gone to visit a woman that he has some kind of mysterious criminal past with, and she convinces him to accept a new job with her, robbing the Smithsonian!

Another well-written comedic issue by James Asmus. An artist named Kano fills in for Tom Fowler this issue, and does a good job. I know I’ve fallen behind on reviews for this series, but that is not due to the quality, which it has continued to maintain since the first issue.
