Atomic City Tales TPB (2002 Oni Press) comic books
Volume 1 - 1st printing. "Go Power!" Collects Atomic City Comics (1994 Black Eye) #1-3. Story and art by Jay Stephens. Imagine a post-modern world where men can fly, the cartoonists who create them show up from time to time, and girls with extraordinary strength sell underarm deodorant, and you'll have a pretty good idea of what things are like in Atomic City. Particularly what it's like for Atomic City's newest super-being, the rough-and-tumble Big Bang. With rockabilly good looks and an overabundance of good-time attitude, Big Bang is pretty fresh to the hero game and to what appears to be unlimited powers. Joining him for his bizarre adventures are the certifiably crazy Quirk, righteously indignant Atomic Girl, and the powerfully attractive Z-Girl. Together, they run afoul of the city's worst criminal gang, run by the devilish, decapitated Doc Phantom. And, with all these newbies causing trouble on the streets, what will Atomic City's greatest hero, The Green Torpedo, have to say about it? It's a chaotic ride through the finest in underground cartooning. Softcover, 160 pages, B&W. Cover price $12.95.
