It's kind of slow paced story wise. Not really sure where it's going. But I enjoy it because it definitely does a good job expressing his emotions and his power set.

It's like Sub-par decent. It's something you can enjoy while reading but picking it up doesn't really matter. If there's going to be a Third Wave of the N52, Captain Atom will probably be cancelled.

I didn't enjoy the first few issues in the least.

I read the first three but didn't really care for the writing, the art is decent though.

It started out mediocre, but it's been getting better with issue, generally. The introduction arc seems to be over, next arc has something do with with "the Timestream". If anyone wants to give it go, next issue would be a good time I think.

I re-read issues #1-#6 yesterday, and just read #7 now...it's definitely one of those titles 'written for the trade'. Literally, it's ten times better when read all at once as opposed to monthly. Trade-waiting this one isn't really an option though, when it's selling so low as it is...

Issue 7 was good. But I really don't think there is enough here and I'm pretty sure its cancellation is sure coming.

Also, I really wish they would elaborate more on his abilities. And one thing I was not prepared for when the new 52 came around was seeing captain atom not being able to take human form.

It definitely reads better in one sitting, as the book actually is pretty good conceptually, but not necessarily well executed or strongly written. What would seriously help here is a good co-writer to share and smooth out the scripting/storytelling duties. I hope that it is NOT cancelled, as it is starting to hit a point that few DC books ever manage to. I am liking the self-exploration aspects, as the book is almost starting to remind me a little of Jim Starlin's "Warlock", although Starlin is a far stronger story-teller.

I like it, and I did not think I would dig it.

I had zero expectations for this and it turned out decent. The art is nice to look at as well.

The first issue of Captain Atom that I read was #3 and I only read it because The Flash was in it. Well I liked it and so I have since bought and read issues # 10, 11, 12, & 0.
