All New Atom #17

Ladronn has put together better covers than this one, such as the issue coming up. In fact, I don't even really know what the hell is going on with this cover.

Anyway, Gail Simone returns in this issue, and she slaps together a tale of romance. Ryan gives his lady friend another shot, even after she turned into Giganta and wreaked havoc whilst being controlled by a cancer God on their first date.
What a guy.

Agent Diana Prince shows up to investigate the goings on with Ryan's gigantic love, and stuff gets pretty ugly.
For those of you not as familiar with the second tier characters of the DC world, Diana Prince is also known as Wonder Woman, a hero that occasionally pops up here and there.

She also gets clocked in the head by Choi, which was a growing up moment for our new hero.

I'll admit that there's not much going on in this issue, and that it feels like it's setting us up for something bigger and more involved (please!). So there you go: it's a nice lead into All New Atom #18, which goes on sale tomorrow/today, December 5th. And as you can see by the cover, it's going to be hot! Whooo!

On the plus side, visuals from Norton and Scott in this one are great, and I they're seriously something to look forward to with each issue.

Not the best cover ever, but I thought it was sorta' cool. It looks to me like he was trying to ram WW as he's been wont to do in combat lately, and she deflected him like she would a bullet. It sort of drives home how hard he'd have it in a straight up fight against the Princess....of course, he could always shrink down and crosswire her brain, but that'd be cheating.

Well, he'd never have a shot at taking her down because DC would fold upon itself before they let their beloved Princess look bad.
