    I get the feeling that the story is in danger of painting itself into a corner - but creating that scenario is probably the goal of the creative team. I'm looking forward to seeing where the story goes from here. Read Full Review

    "Agents of Atlas" #3 is a surprisingly good book, proving once again that there are no such thing as bad characters. It's all in how you handle them, and Parker's made these cast-off characters from the 1950s vastly entertaining. I'll definitely keep reading so long as he keeps writing them. Read Full Review

    Anyway, "The Dragon's Corridor" is a lot of fun and makes the book worth picking up, even if you aren't much interested in how Dark Reign is effecting the world of The Atlas Foundation. I do want to add, though, that while the modern story isn't as interesting in its specifics this go around, I still appreciate the fact that Marvel is reintegrating another aspect of Marvel's Espionage Genre. With this title, Secret Warriors, and New Avengers: The Reunion, it is beginning to be an interesting time to be a spy in the MU, or to enjoy spy stories set in the MU. And that's a very good thing.

    Which is a surprise that might have worked better had he not been on the cover. Still, it's a good issue overall, though better in the present than the past. The moral ambiguity of passing themselves off as villains is fascinating, and Marvel Boy's telepathic peek in to the minds of Sentry and Green Goblin during their meeting is terrifying, on both counts. The use of Venus as camp counselor is perfect, and M-11 once again proves itselfto be more useful than a hundred Eagle Scouts with Swiss Army knives and the assistance of Phineas, Ferb, all three Brainiac 5's and R2D2... though I may be exaggerated. I was a little disappointed with the pacing of the issue, as the flashbacks seemed to take over much of the book, and having the cover featured character appear only in a cameo on the last page bothered me a bit. Still, the two art teams deliver some pretty pictures, and the dialogue and character moments make the book sing. Agents of Atlas #3 still makes the grade, earni Read Full Review
