Atmospherics is a short story by Warren Ellis that is best described in it's back cover: She's in a hospital. Except it may be a police station. She's been traumatized. Or she's been arrested. She's the only living witness of a cattle-mutilation style attack on humans. Or she's a multiple killer who has a psychotic reaction to heroin use. Who may not survive discovering who she really is.

Confusing in a good way, Ellis' writing is again almost pure gold. Meyer Jr.'s art keeps up the mood and look

Forget accusing Greg Land of tracing off his anatomies, or of criticizing Rob Liefeld's grasp on anatomy. In this brief comic most panels are repeated several times. One of the panels is repeated no less than seven times, and most are repeated at least four or five times. And we're speaking of a comic that is composed of 30 pages (it says 48, but the remaining 18 pages are just sketch galleries and an afterword by Warren Ellis). Seriously, this could be Warren Ellis' best comic (and it is not), ...more
Just your average aliens mutilating humans like cattle for fun story meets female serial killer junkie driven wild by heroin story
