Earth! It's pretty cool. There's cable, and other stuff. But now that Erica's been all around the universe and discovered that she can do pretty much anything...the transition back to normal life has been kinda challenging. Luckily she's got distractions, like her ghost-dad bugging her about galactic math, her brother trying to screw her out of her inheritance...and villains trying to take over the world. It's enough to make a girl want to adopt 30 or so dogs and cats. Check out a brand new arc of Solar!

    Solar: Man of The Atom #9 is a fresh start that gives Erica that opening to be the hero she wants to be on familiar grounds. She loves being a hero, though also wants to have a normal life. That is the kind of struggle we need to see, There is much to look forward to, much we don't know, and that is great moving forward having something to anticipate since the time between issues tends to feel fairly long.

    The Fandom Post - Chris Beveridge Feb 20, 2015

    Solar, Man of the Atom sets the stage for the final arc here with Erica and Phil now firmly back on earth but something surreal is already happening. We get some good time between Erica and Dave that does make you laugh and be completely sympathetic to both sides of what's going on since Erica's story is pretty out of this world. Her coping with what's going on is something that should be explored more, but it's given a superficial approach after the information dump unfortunately. Events going on a the nuclear plant is what's going to drive the narrative forward, at least for the next issue or two, but it's a whole lot of unknown at the moment as to what it is or what it means. Which is unfortunate, because it feels like it needs more of a hook to make you want to know more as there's not much must-see material here at the moment. Unless you're totally invested in either the Erica and Dave relationship or Erica's new relationship with lots and lots of cats. Read Full Review

    Unleash The Fanboy - John McCubbin Feb 18, 2015

    Solar: Man of the Atom #9 is the perfect jumping on point for new fans, as though the initial background sequence may seem a little jarring, the action and energy certainly makes up. There is also an amazing Golden Key appearance near the end that will leave fans returning for more. Read Full Review
