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.
