    For an anthology with 3 stories I was doing pretty good with this issue, two stories I really liked and one that I think can grow on me over time. The art was matched with the tone/content of the stories in all 3 cases, and the stories were all very different from one another and all had some really unique story hooks that were new to me. This adds up to a book where I'm definitely looking forward to issue #2. Read Full Review

    So having gotten my attention, was the comic worth my time? Definitely. I was extremely pleased with the quality of the stories in this first issue, each of which gave just enough information to intrigue the reader about the premise and leave me wanting to see what happens next to these characters. The themes are not original, but Dave Elliott and W. H. Rauf do a good job of putting their personal spin on the ideas, especially in the areas of dialogue and characterization. Having read comics for more than 30 years now, I don't require original ideas so much as a good take on solid themes. A1 #1 provides that in spades and is recommended for anyone looking to try a new series. Read Full Review

    . . $4, 30pgs! All ADs @ back! . . . A1 and Atomika return from their most recent slumber, this time from Titan publishing. This anthology brings three stories in serial form. A style which usually isn't to my liking, but i wanted to support Dave Elliott who writes 2 of 3, and is the editor. While the opening story, (The Weirding Willows) isn't so much to my genre tastes, the middle story, CarpeDiem, is a fantastic ride id love to see as its own title! The third story is a bit short, but certainly works to grab me with an interesting premise. Give it a shot folks!
