    One thought on “The All-New Atom, Vol. 1: My Life in Miniature

    1. Jason

      Things happen. I finished the volume, and I am still not sure why they happen or why I should care. For a new series, this book does a poor job of establishing its characters*, its setting, and its raison d'etre. It's got a few good jokes, but for the most part, you've just got to hang on to the plot for dear life and hope somewhere along the line (read that as: after this volume because it's a continuing series) the characters will begin to be fleshed out. I picked this up because I like Gail S [...]

    2. Brent

      More fun than I thought: I enjoyed Gail Simone's script, humor, and the energetic art of Byrne and Barrows. Q: Is this the last bit of Byrne work for the big two publishers, with his run with Simone on Action mixed in?Ryan Choi seems more fun than Ray Palmer, though I like 'em both. Hope his seeming death [elsewhere; wasn't it a mean run on Titans] is reversed by some story sometime.Recommended.

    3. Joseph

      Since Ryan Choi is back in action as the Atom in the new DC Rebirth Universe, I thought I'd read up on his original adventures from a few years ago. Gail Simone writes an intriguing tale of an alien race who is battling a Lovecraftian god in Ivy Town, and the art by Byrne and Barrows is pretty damn great. Ryan is certainly a likable character, and Simone fills out the cast with some well-thought out supporters, too.

    4. Jacob

      I found this book difficult to get through. I'm puzzled by the positive hype behind it as Entertainment Weekly awarded it the "Best Ongoing Comic of 2006." I really didn't care for the character at all and felt I didn't know him. I knew going in that this was the publisher's attempt to bring some color to superheroes who are mostly white and that was fine, but I just don't think the writer understood the personal or social conflicts and issues a Chinese scientist would grapple with in becoming a [...]

    5. John Wiswell

      Very enjoyable for new readers. All you really have to know in advance is a) the previous Atom was Ray Palmer, a brilliant scientist, and b) that magic exists and thrives in this world alongside a version of science that puts our achievements to shame. Most of this comic is tongue in cheek, from the fight scene at a drive-in movie theatre (with Attack of the She-Devil playing in the background) to the cult of pilgrims, to the plot of a microscopic army whose base is hidden in a dog’s fur. Unfo [...]

    6. Lissibith

      I found this to be a not terribly original but thoroughly enjoyable superhero romp - and that coming from someone who's never really been a fan of any of the plethora of growing and shrinking superheroes in Marvel and DC. Ryan Choi and his supporting cast of family, coworkers and baddies are the real draw I think. The story here - Ryan discovering Roy Palmer's old size change belt and then getting drawn into a war between magic and science that the belt engendered - holds together, but barely. B [...]

    7. Kayla

      The writing was fine, if a bit rushed. There wasn't enough time for the villains/battle to be explained well. Since there wasn't enough explanation and three antagonists were introduced and defeated in this volume, it got confusing. Then there was the art. Half of it was good! However, there was the other half where the characters were, shall we say "caricatured"? The Asian features were not even proportioned to the rest of the head.

    8. Shannon

      Story is a little jumpy and confusing at times. Not a bad book, just feel like it could have been much better.

    9. Jeremiah

      I wanted to love this because I love Gail Simone's other work. There were some touches I found fantastic: creative uses of the protagonist's powers; the quotes from scientists both real and fictional; the contrast between the two antagonistic sides, science versus magic. But I found the overall arch of the book uneven, a feeling bolstered by the change in artists throughout. It is still an overall satisfying comic book superhero adventure, but one that does not measure up to my expectations.

      Reprints Brave New World #1 and The All-New Atom #1-6 (August 2006-February 2007). Ryan Choi is living his dream. He is getting to explore science and he has a new tool.

Unfortunately, Ryan discovers that his new job in Ivy Town is a little more difficult than he thought…Ivy Town is a hotbed for strange happening. When Ryan receives warning that a war [...]

    11. Andy 117

      Patron saint of women in comics Gail Simone brings back The Atom in a bizarre run that nontheless has a certain "something" that has made it a cult hit.The new Atom is Ryan Choi, a correspondent of old Atom, Ray Palmer. Arriving in America, the affable and enthusiastic Choi takes up residence in Palmer's old place, is hired for Palmer's old position at the Ivy Town University, and inherits Palmer's shrinking belt, outfit, and mantle as The Atom. The biggest problem with All-New Atom, which is on [...]

    12. Mike Jozic

      I was never all that interested in The All-New Atom when it debuted despite having an interest in the character. The artwork by John Byrne piqued my curiosity, and the fact that it was based on concepts developed by Grant Morrison got it onto my radar, but the writing of Gail Simone has absolutely never drawn me in. Regardless of what she is writing, I just can't get sucked in like so many people I know can. I feel like she's missing something narratively. Every time I pick up something she's wr [...]

    13. Brad

      D.C. rebooted the Atom, who proves that shrinking can help you fight crime, but didn't update him that much. The Atom's still a science professor, still lives in Ivy Town, and still uses a shrinking belt to get small and do gross stuff like get swallowed by giant ladies. Wait, there's on difference: this time he's Asian.So while the character hasn't changed this much, the story is a fairly interesting one. The last Atom, Ray Palmer, disappeared mysteriously (which would be pretty hard for a micr [...]

    14. Ippino

      Prima storia di Atomo che leggo.Come inizio poteva andare meglio, decisamente.La Simone costruisce una storia che potrebbe anche andare, ma per la prima metà del volume è eccessivamente compressa.Il ritmo è tutto sbagliato, secondo me: lo svolgersi degli eventi sembra lasciato un pò troppo al caso; l'introduzione dei comprimari è frettolosa e non aiuta i nuovi lettori a familiarizzare con l'ambientazione; le motivazioni dei cattivi e la loro origine non sono spiegati bene, anzi quasi per nu [...]

    15. Travis

      Nice look at the super hero world by a normal guy suddenly given the power and how it would freak you out as well as amaze you. I also liked Gail's efforts to breath some life into Ivy town and make it feel more like a real place. Art by John Byrne didn't hurt either.Unfortunately, there is also a bit too much effort put into telling weird stories and hitting us over the head with the fact that strange things are happening and hinting that dark forces have something in mind for Ivy town.After aw [...]

    16. Angela

      A new Professor takes over from Ray Palmer in the university. He finds the belt, and decides to be the atom. Things get tricky when aliens who live on his dog decide to destroy the world. This is a great introduction to a new character, I particularly liked his daddy issues. There's also some nice supporting cast, professors who see the atom belt as a scientific problem. This has definite potential for a series. A very good read.

    17. Rob McMonigal

      Despite generally liking Gail Simone's work before and after read this one, I still feel it's weak work from her. This was when DC was trying to create legacy heroes and this time out, it didn't work very well, as the character gets caught between stereotypes and character cliches.

    18. Thurston

      New to graphic novelsbut i thought the characters were flushed out quickly.obably to many intertwining threadst a enough time to flush out 'learning' becoming the new atom.I was actually looking for a ray palmer story, but this was a pleasant surprise

    19. Sam

      Pretty much ANYTHING with Byrne as penciller I will pick up. This is an interesting twist on the ATOM character, though. So far . . . .

    20. Doug

      I picked this up because i'd been told it was funny - but, while it had a few funny spots, i think all of those references were to a later volume. Thoroughly average DC title.

    21. Jeremy DeBottis

      An interesting character, and a story that gets better as it goes, but still just kind of meh in the end.

    22. William Watson

      So much fun. Shame Byrne didn't stay on but the impact wasn't as bad as it could've been. Got me wanting the rest of the series NOW and isn't that point of the first storyline?

    23. Brian

      Gail Simone goes weird absurdist comedy superheroics. Always felt this series was underrated among her work. It's bizarre and funny as hell and, in later books, really quite poignant.

    24. Shannon Appelcline

      Contains lots of interesting characters, and a fun setup, but this particularly storyline never seems to spark. Instead it seems muddled and overly long

    25. Lukas Holmes

      I'm liking current Gail Simone more than this. It's an interesting take and somewhat horrific at times, but I just can't connect to the character or story so far. We'll see how it goes in vol. 2.

    26. Feather Mista

      Lo tengo y leí en números sueltos, pero ahora que lo pienso no estoy seguro de tener todos los capítulos. Ni qué tan bueno estaba, la verdad. Pero bueh, así quedará hasta nuevo aviso.
