Agent of Atlas looked like a strange beast from the start: a book about good guys taking over a secret empire bent on world domination. The series has survived to date mostly through different mini-series, but so far it doesn’t seem to have caught on. That’s a shame, because it’s quite a fun read once you get into it. I must admit that this isn’t easy, as the premise of the whole series is a bit unusual and doesn’t (initially) seemed all that interesting, because it’s impossible in shared universe like Marvel to follow through with the concept to its logical conclusion. But once I warmed up to it, I saw it for what it was, a team-book that so far hasn’t fallen prey to endless replacement of individual members or the group as a whole. In these times that’s actually refreshing to read, where most superhero team books can’t sustain the same line-up for five issues straight. And due to its unique concept it manages to offer slightly different stories than what you expect, thought it doesn’t always avoid typical superhero stuff.
