    This comic is entertaining, but I have to admit that I prefer the original version of the character. He was a bit on the dull side, too, but he had limitations and used his intelligence to solve problems Read Full Review

    Though Doctor Solar has quite a bit of history with at least two prior incarnations, this isn't hard to get into, and I'm enjoying it. If you can also find the first issue, it's well worth checking out this new take on the character. Read Full Review

    So let's talk opinions. Something doesn't feel right. Maybe I'm too hung up on Valiant and the really cool universe that it was. Maybe its the plain, non-super powered enemies. (Serious enemies, like Master Darque was, not these petty muscle bound monsters.) The story feels stretched and simplified. Too much jumping around and not enough focus. I'm still on board for next issue but Mr. Shooter really needs to give me something to keep me hooked or I'm afraid that this series will be removed from my pull list soon. Artistically, this book is strong. Clean visuals and nice action sequences. There is even a touch of humor infused in this issue which is always a nice touch to a book. Overall, I say hang in there. If I know Shooter, it will get better. That's my opinion folks. Take it or leave it. Read Full Review

    Major Spoilers - Matthew Peterson Sep 13, 2010

    Overall, though, Im intrigued and its a nice looking book, so Doctor Solar, Man Of The Atom #2 earns a hopeful 3.5 out of 5 stars overall. Its hardly perfect, but its certainly a good start for a new comic book world. Lets hope that we can hold off on Unity 2010 long enough to establish a decent fanbase Read Full Review

    Comic Book Resources - Greg McElhatton Sep 12, 2010

    "Doctor Solar, Man of the Atom" is off to a lackluster start, and that's a shame. Hiring Shooter to write it and "Magnus, Robot Fighter" felt like a no-brainer, but so far it's not providing the entertainment that was inherently promised. I know that these characters have been around for ages, but that doesn't mean new stories written about them should feel that way, too. Something fresher, please. Read Full Review
