Atom 8 and 9

All-New Atom #8

This crazy series where ANYTHING can happen continues with this issue in which The Atom travels to a possible future where everything relates to Superheroes and Atom and the cut-in-half man, Dr. Hyatt, are being pursued by a pissed off a time cop. Wow, that is one crazy and fun issue.

And the weirdness continues this issue even outside of Ivy Town. The Atom returns to Hong Kong to help out an old high school crush and he ends up in a fight with her dead husband, who she apparently murdered. The plots of this series are so cooooll and fun. I really think more people should be reading this book. If you want something completely unpredictable than All-New Atom is definitely for you. There is no way you can ever guess what is coming next. I liked the guest artists this issue, they were really good and I enjoyed learning a little bit more about Ryan's past. The villain Alvin is a total bastard but you wonder if Jia isn't all sweet and nice as she acts. This was a great issue.
