Captain Atom Vol. 1: Evolution (The New 52) based on 0 ratings. 2 reviews.
In this collection we learn of the history of Captain Atom and some of his adventures. Well illustrated and formed though somewhat cartoony graphics add to the storyline and characters. Characters are somewhat stereotypical and confrontational. Overall, an interesting read.
My history with Captain Atom is pretty limited and after reading this I wonder if J.T. Krul's is as well. He basically writes a combination of Firestorm and the Hulk with a complete lack of personality. DC Comics' New 52 was supposed to energize new readers with stories they've never seen before and this certainly isn't the case. Krul's plot and dialogue are both bland. The art by Freddie Williams is good but looks unfinished. Overall, this book does nothing to get new readers interested in Captain Atom and that's a shame.
