    Bennett's art is great, just as good if not better than Sook. Pick this up for a great jumping-on point and some great hints of things to come from the new art team when they go monthly in December. Read Full Review

    While the story has a decidedly Silver Age feel to it, the modern style of the art helps to bring this story into the present day, as the more chilling aspects of the story add a real sense of urgency to the issue. From the gruesome discovery of the body with its internal organs removed, to the sinister vibe of the operating theatre as the aliens prepare to experiment on Hawkman, the art manages to give a serious edge to the material. The art also does a solid job with its big impact moments from the establishing shot of the massive underground complex that was uncovered, to the big climax as our heroes are trying to out race the explosive attack that the Atom set off. There's also some nice work on the action sequences, with the panels where the Atom makes use of Hawkman's mace being a particularly effective visual. Plus there's is just something inherently cool about the shot where the Atom is clinging to a speeding electron. Read Full Review
