    Major Spoilers - Matthew Peterson Nov 2, 2009

    This book picks up right where the Invincible Presents Atom Eve series ended a couple of years ago, and features exactly the same creative team. I really enjoyed the story of how Samantha become Atom Eve, and this first chapter of Rex's story is equally entertaining. The only real problems that I have with the story are problems that I occasionally have with Kirkman's work, that being the general expectation that most people (specifically Rex's father) are bastards at heart. Radcliffe's parental concern and pride in Rex is well-handled, and there's a couple of moments of real emotion, such as Rex's first surgery to gain his explosive implants. Nate Bellegarde has an unusual art style, somewhat akin to Ryan Ottley's, and is very attractive, save for an occasional problem with scale (such as in the first panel with Rex, and again in the last page introduction of Eve.

    I honestly liked it more, than Eve's origin. It doesn't feel rushed. Yeah, Kirkman decided Rex deserved a normal origin story too. Why not. Especially if he really killed him in #60. I don't know why I didn't skip the spoiler here, but well... Not like I care about spoilers. I think this book will get a special episode in the show too. But we'll see that. Also I want to say that this artist was kinda worse in Eve's story. I like him here.
