The female Solar has done her best to atone for her dad's interstellar sins... but she can't stop the evil that's coming to Earth. It's an absolute disaster of a homecoming from Frank J. Barbiere (Five Ghosts) and Jonathan Lau (Codename: Action)!

    Solar: Man of The Atom #8 is the end to another chapter in Erica's life as Solar which builds her up to be the hero she's always wanted to be since a child. This story is moving, inspirational, and I think a lot of us can look at her and see we have had that same fire in our hearts to strive for the impossible, all for the sake of what we think is right.

    A fantastic end to the space portion of the story that has interesting characters moments and increases the power set of Solar ten fold. Great read and a surefire must have when this is collected. Read Full Review

    Bringing the space based adventures to a close here for a bit is definitely welcome as I've certainly been pining to know what's been going on with those on Earth. We didn't get much in the way of a nod to them in the last few issues, which is a surprise. That's about to come back into view in a big way, though not as big as how Erica just closed out things for the Kaandari. The scale of her powers aren't a surprise, if previous Solar series are being used as a foundation, but it is surprising to see her go so big so soon in the run. It's good stuff and it does leave me wishing they could really dig into it more in terms of the mechanics of it all and the real impact on the Kaandari people as well. Erica has the best line in the book when she tells her father what the universe runs on. We need more of that. Read Full Review
