Despite the fact that some mainstream characters are being brought in, it really feels like the author's creativity has been stymied.

Full review.

"Don't thou be frontin'." Ugh, this was terrible. I'd give it no stars if I could. Marvel and DC seem to be plagued with writers who try too freaking hard to be hip and funny. This was about as funny as listening to someone read a how-to manual on rock pets. This wouldn't have been such a terrible story if all this terrible "humor" wasn't popping up on ever page. And I realize Ryan is geeky and would make stupid jokes that seemed lame, but even that hit an all new low point.

Would be 1.5 stars if I could manage it. But since I can't, we're going with 2 since I reserve 1 for where it just feels like the creator didn't TRY and I think in this case they tried, but were somewhat hampered by editorial.

Anyway, as to my thoughts... TED!

There is plenty to say about the book itself, but the reading was worth it to me just for the cameo from spirit angel Ted Kord. And spirit angel Ted Kord saying with utter confidence that if Jason Todd doesn't keep his hands and his anger i

More Atom goodness from fan-favourite writer Gail Simone!

With more serious human affairs covered in the last volume, here we have more utter nonsense - though, this is grand nonsense, and nonsense that feels much more earned that when introduced in volume one.

Ryan Choi, lovable as ever, figures he must look for Ray Palmer, long missing. He employs the help of... well, a lot of people. It's utterly surprising, almost as much as it is baffling. The sheer borderline acid trip nature of the series

The new Atom goes in search of Ray Palmer. He journeys to a couple of Palmer's old haunts, including a construct of Heaven. I found this a really amusing book, loved the whole idea of the heaven and the interactions with characters there. I am really beginning to like Choi as the Atom. A good read.

More awfulness, seriously. I think this is the first time I ranked a book with a 1 star (and I'm about to change my 2 star rank on the prior two books and change my ratings to 1 star.) Unbelievable: 3 books in and it's not getting better. I hope Rick Remender will impress in the next volume.
