Time Event
Today was Atom Eve day.
Invincible Presents: Atom Eve #1 hit stores today. I hope you ventured out into the balmy, globally-warmed winter's day to pick up a copy.

Comic Pants seems to have liked it:

Dan Grendell Read and Thought:

Invincible Presents: Atom Eve #1 (of 2)
Writer: Benito Cereno
Artist: Nate Bellegarde
Company: Image Comics

I’ve always liked the character of Atom Eve, the main character’s sometime love interest in Invincible. She’s smart, she has a cool power, and that name is just fun. This mini, which explores her origin and early years, fleshes out her backstory and makes her even more interesting by making her a runaway government superweapon. Watched over by the doctor who developed her powers as she grows up, Eve learns to deal with her abilities and the problems and benefits they bring, and Cereno does a great job of portraying the positives and negatives of them. The writing is snappy and smart, just like Kirkman’s on Invincible, and Bellegarde does a great job on art with a style that reminds me of Jim Rugg. Not just a pointless spin-off, this is well worth checking out.

So there you have it.

Anybody grab it?
