    Thierry Smolderen does a bang-up job of addressing the fact that with any new technology there is going to be hiccups or at least a douchebag willing to misuse it for his personal gains. Alexandre Clerisse delivers a set of aesthetically pleasing pages with minute details on each page that makes the panels and back stories all the more heart tugging.Thus far Atomic Empire has enough going for it that it could find interest from fans outside of normal comic readers, and I could see this getting the Netflix treatment. Out of 5 stars I give it a 3.5. Read Full Review
