  1. Very consistent thus far. Just loving this. 

  2. It’s nice to see this book finally getting covers that match the quality of what’s inside, the first 3 of the series were dreadful.

  3. The first cover was awful, the second cover was blah, but solid since then. The covers have been getting better and better as Maguire has (been allowed?) gone for more and more a graphic designed look.

  4. Is that a tribute to the classic sciFi show Time Tunnel!?!? Great cover.

  5. THat’s a damn good cover.

  6. @Prax I was kinda reminded of the intro to The IT Crowd 🙂 If only the characters were isometric!

  7. This book gave me chills. I don’t see how it can’t be my Pick of the Week.

    I have never read anything about Captain Atom before but I really need to find some good stuff now. He travels the timestream when he absorbs radiation? AWESOME! 

  8. @Minion I think that was the nature of the bomb and not his powers.  I don’t recall him doing that before but I’ve only read him in the JLI.

  9. @Damon I was thinking it was a regular thing since he said he was getting good at it when discussing the details of when he would return to the present.

  10. Only a $1.99 on DC app!

  11. @Minion I only have followed Captain Atom off and on, but it does tie into his origin, as I believe that original nuking sent him forward through time, and he also got sent to some other dimensions and worlds in more recent storylines and possibly also through time.

  12. This was a wonderfully clever issue. That first twist about when Captain Atom learned about his surroundings really threw me through a loop. If I didn’t already think that this was the best DC books on the stands, this issue would have convinced me.

    It was also cool to read a story focused around Captain Atom, as I’ve had next to no history reading the character. This issue did a good job talking about his origins and narrating in his voice.

  13. @Minion for the last few years after he absrobs some kind of huge bomb or crazy energy, whenever he flys out of the atmosphere to expell it he travels a few hours into the future or a few minutes sometimes and usually he just pops back into the present after a few minutes. This time it took a lot longer because of the nature of the bomb and it also made him travel a lot further

  14. At what point does this stop being "surprisingly good" & just plain good?

  15. @WadeWilson After about issue three I just started to expect it to be awesome.

  16. All hail the return of the DC (bi) weekly titles.  This issue was jaw-droppingly good.
