You're Erica Seleski. Yesterday you were an architect. Today you can pretty much do anything. Can the brand-new WOMAN OF THE ATOM figure out her incredible abilities in time to stop a full-on alien invasion? (Hint: No.) It's a brave new world for Solar from the astounding vision of FRANK BARBIERE (Five Ghosts, New Avengers) and Joe Bennett (Iron Man)!

    This continues to be my favorite series right now and Solar should be on everyones' minds if they want a unique character dynamic duo and a fun new series. Read Full Review

    Heroics made under pressure are always entertaining and this is highly entertaining. This is a Gold Key character whose adventures everyone should be following. Read Full Review

    Unleash The Fanboy - John McCubbin Jul 22, 2014

    The first arc of Solar: Man of the Atom comes to a close and though we've yet to see something truly spectacular the energy and character depth makes it a very enticing series. Highly recommended. Read Full Review

    The Fandom Post - Chris Beveridge Jul 23, 2014

    Solar, Man of the Atom has had a good run in its first four issues and there's a lot of places it can go. The shift from Phil to Erica was a bit surprising and I'm enjoying her having to deal with the situation that she's herself in, especially now that we know what happened to Phil that caused the aliens to go after him. I do miss some of the early stuff with just Phil and his view and understanding of the cosmos and reality with how he worked it, but a blending of the two can work well and make for tension, humor and interesting results. The same is expected when it comes to Colin's story, which I can see weaving back into main storyline material as this goes on. It's a bit weak at the moment but that's because it's seeding things. There's a lot to like here with this issue when it comes to the fight, pacing and artwork but it needed a little more oomph to really make it fully engaging. Read Full Review

    Solar did a great job with the new approach of having Erica adopt the mantle of the Man of the Atom and having her father as a spirit mentor, but the rapid advancement of her character stretches believability a bit too far. Read Full Review
