Captain Atom #8

Captain Atom finds himself pulled into the timestream with alternate versions of himself, including a future version who warns of the impending end of the world. Unable to change their past, without possibly ending their own existence, the other versions must instead help Captain Atom alter his future in order to save the world.

Once again writer J. T. Krul gives us big ideas brought marvelously to life by Freddie E. Williams II' art. Captain Atom's tour of the future leads him to old friends and new enemies including a look forward at what his attempt to help Ranita may lead to quite a few unforeseen consequences.

Far on the outside of the DCU, and with a focus far from your usual super-heroics, Captain Atom is a title you need to be reading. However, it's by far one of the most ambitious projects of the New 52, and continues to be one of it's most pleasant surprises. Worth a look.

[DC, $2.99]
