“This all started with an accident…”AN ALL-NEW CORNER OF THE GOLD KEY UNIVERSE! Flooded with experimental radiation that grants him unbelievable powers, the brilliant-and-obsessive Dr. Phil Seleski seeks to unlock the secrets of the universe, begrudgingly becoming a "hero" along the way. But can a single man be trusted with near-limitless abilities? What will this mean to the ones he loves? And will his choices lead to utter chaos and destruction? Brilliant writer FRANK BARBIERE (Five Ghosts) and JOE BENNETT present the Man Of The Atom as you've NEVER imagined!

The authorities are already baffled by a rash of unexplainable deaths in Chinatown, but when the recently deceased begin to rise from their graves and plague the living, it is clear they are out of their league. Thankfully the Shadow is on hand, and ready to stand against the Zombie Queen of Chinatown!

Not really digging the art in the Shadow.

Am I the only one that was invested in Solar while reading the preview? That really made me want to pick it up, and check it out.

At first I though the headline said "The Atom #1" and though the Atom was coming back in the New 52. Still, the stuff on this page looks really good.

Solar is badass but he needs a better costume.

@farkam:

Superhero costumes are hard i don't think this is bad. Better then any of the non mainstream DC characters and even better then some incarnations of mainstream DC characters (Superboy where's a shirt with an S....)
