    A Comic Book Blog - Victor Kutsenok Dec 23, 2010

    So let's talk opinions. This issue continues last issue's excellence. The story is great. The action is non-stop and intense. Solar is now using the full extent of his god like powers. Jim Shooter is back on the ball here. After a slow start, the first arc ended with a bang. A bunch of cool character intros. A nice patsy first enemy who can clearly be brought back in the future to pose a threat. An intro of a new mastermind villain. All written and drawn phenomenally. There's even some humor being thrown in which was sorely missed from prior issues. Solar is not doing as much brooding or second guessing. His confidence is back. The story itself is solid. The technical jargon from prior issues are gone. The battles are constant and intense. Everything a great comic book should have. Let's hope the greatness continues. That's my opinion folks. Take it or leave it. Read Full Review

    As I write before, Robinsons work is more suited for this series than the previous artist because its more super hero-oriented. The line work reminds me of Gil Kanes drawings. Funnily, its also kinetic. For those not familiar with Solar The Man of the Atom, this series is worth picking. The story is still slow, but it packs enough action and contents per issue. Its not a five minutes read. Read Full Review
