    I went into this issue with high expectations, and I was not disappointed. Once again it looks like DC has a hit on its hands. Luckily, there just seems to be something magical in the pairing of Gail Simone & John Byrne. In this case, the magic that's being produced is The All New Atom and the fans are the lucky ones.

    I confess I have doubts about this book's ability to survive in today's market: it's different and it's smart, and that's probably why it won't last a year. But I tend to think most people who'll give this book a try will be pleasantly surprised. Read Full Review

    John Byrne is an action artist. With him telling the story, there is nothing that is unclear. His work is not as polished as it used to be, but still, it makes for a great adventure story. I really like the dynamism of his work. Scotts inking preserves much of Byrnes original work - or at least, tries to make it looks like Byrnes work of recent years. Read Full Review

    Comic Book Revolution - Rokk Krinn Jul 6, 2006

    Atom #1 just felt a bit disjointed and choppy. I believe that good comics have a soul and have rhythm. This issue didn't feel that it had any rhythm at all. As far as a first issue goes, Atom #1 came across as very middle in the road. Nothing terrible, but nothing great. And that isn't good for a first issue of a new series. With so much competition, the first issue has to grab the reader and get them to spend their limited funds on this new title. I'm not too sure that Atom #1 succeeded in that endeavor. I think that the All New Atom has potential, but I see no reason why Ray Palmer could not have been used in this title. Using Ryan instead of Ray brings nothing new or unique to this title. Like all new titles, I'll give it 6 issues to prove to me that it belongs a spot on the Revolution's permanent pull list. Read Full Review
