    Captain Atom is certainly one of the DC titles that has a better grasp on where it's going, plot-wise. I thank Mr. Krul and Mr. Williams for putting this much hard work into it. Read Full Review

    The only real disappointment in this book is that it opens and closes with more generic "creepy monster" action. The action itself is well-rendered, but I'd love for the skulking, unnamed threat to reach this title's forefront so that it doesn't seem like we're being teased by a phantom plot. The creative team to be settling into a nice groove at this point, though, and I wouldn't hesitate to support a purchase for readers who might be on the fence. Read Full Review

    I'll admit that I'm still a tiny bit perplexed on why a "Captain Atom" book ended up being one of the re-launch titles, but so far it's holding my interest just enough to keep me going. I'd like to see the pace pick up a bit, but for now the foundation-building is strong enough that that's not a critical change needed. Still, so long as Williams and Villarrubia are on board, I think I will be, too. Read Full Review
