Editorial Reviews

Review

A clever, S.H.I.E.L.D.-style espionage tale brought to life in post-Dubya America. -- Brian K Vaughn (Y: The Last Man), from the cover

A tight little tale about a big messy world... These guys sure know how to spin a yarn! -- Douglas Rushkoff (The Ecstasy Club), from the cover

Subatomic is a clever, oddly compelling tale built. Deceptively calm and eminently readable, it's rich in powerful unstated emotion. -- Kurt Busiek (Astro City), from the cover

By DH on September 9, 2003
I was blown away by Subatomic - the pacing and subtle characterization suggest a writer with real skill. This is a hybrid graphic novel, grabbing the populist appeal of comics and merging it with the literate sensibilities of contemporary prose novels.
Subatomic is about a spy who defects from a shadowy US organization and tries to live a normal life as an American citizen. It's like the best elements of Queen & Country mixed with The Fugitive. Toss in a bit of The Prisoner and The Bourne Identity and you've got something surprisingly fresh and new.
I have to comment on the physical book - this is one of the best-looking graphic novels I've ever seen, with color glossy paper and an awesome embossed cover. Nice!
This would make a great TV show!

I found this book after picking up The Supernaturalists by the same creators, and wasn't disappointed. This is a subtle, realistic spy comic (a paradox) that serves up a wry commentary on Ashcroft's USA without hitting you over the head with it. If you like Queen & Country or The Bourne Identity, this is the book for you.
