    Agents of Atlas #2 does exactly what it's supposed to do as the sophomore entry: continue the momentum. Pak's smart, deliberate writing coupled with Leon and Mhan's solid artistry continue to cultivate a wonderful sandbox that allows for equal parts meditation on the Asian/Asian-American experience and the joy of watching heroes save the day.

    Agents of Atlas got off to a solid start, but after #2 you can clearly see how much potential this team and this premise has. Read Full Review

    What is this story about because I have no idea and really from what I have read, nothing is telling me that this book should even exist. It has some awesome characters but we don't even get much from any of them. Unfortunately, even the art wasn't all that great in the book. I feel like Greg Pak really could care less about this book. Otherwise, he would write at least a decent story. I would not recommend this book at all! Nothing about this book is even interesting and it is a shame that these characters are being wasted away.

    What a turn around by Pak and Leon. I sorta-liked Agents of Atlas 1, but issue 2 was extraordinary. The art was flawless. While I thought issue 1 was a little over the top, with all the dragons and the Pan-Pass stuff, issue 2 took it’s time to explain everything and we even got a decent amount of character moments and development, which has been a rarity ever since Pak started this experiment back in War of the Realms. I love it.

    Better than issue one for sure. Still not that into it, however.

    I love Nico Leon, but I don't think he fits with this creative team. His art needs color depth that Federico Blee doesn't provide, and I suspect the scripting actively plays against his (Leon's) strengths.

    Also, Mike Nguyen's price point for the Pan Pass is absurd. $1,000 a day is over a third of a million dollars a year. For a sci-fi metro card. It's exactly like when evil Axis-transreversed Tony Stark tried selling Extremis to the public at a similarly ruinous price. Characters treating these gimmicks as egalitarian when they're priced exclusively for the one percent instantly brings a heavy hammer down on my suspension of disbelief.
