It Girl and the Atomics #2

I really enjoyed the first issue of It Girl and the Atomics from Madman creator Mike Allred because it was off-beat without getting as weird as Allred's other work. Issue #2 ventures a little further into that territory, and although I didn't enjoy it as much as last month's comic, it's still worth a read.

After agreeing to test out Dr. Flem's Electrical Transference machine, It Girl finds herself outside her body in a different reality (not dissimilar to a STNG Holodeck) without her powers, shifting between corporal and incorporeal, battling the Skunk and the other members of his gang.

I'm unsure whether this was a look into the future, past, or an alternate dimension (and slightly miffed the comic feels equally unsure), but It Girl's adventure keeps the humor and tone I really enjoyed in last month's first issue.

I've also got to praise the variant cover by Darwyn Cooke which certainly helps sell issue #2. Worth a look.
