    As with any extended story, the final outcome remains to be seen, but judging by this first installment, it's more of the expected Jeff Parker quality. He's got his characters figured out, so given the chance to explicate them, he's probably ready with charts, graphs, and EKG readouts. There's little chance of faltering here. And if we get wacky old comics thrown in, only the better. This originally seemed like it might have been a fairly unnecessary outing, but Parker fans needn't have worried; he's delivering the quality as much as ever. Read Full Review

    So far, nothing about this book has me clamoring for the next installment. It's an enjoyable read that has the potential to be an interesting, fun and different interpretation of the golden age superhero origin story, but this issue alone may not be compelling enough to keep the attention of most comic book readers.

    This isn't a "must-have" or "can't miss" book, but it is entertaining. Parker and Ruiz deliver a good story about a character very few fans know much about. Additionally, it's another avenue for "Agents of Atlas" fans to find their fix on. Read Full Review
