Just when you thought all hope was lost, the Captain is back! Bigger and bolder than ever! This is one of my all-time favorite issues of Captain Atom. Steve Ditko's splash page is nothing short of magnificent. These were good times to be reading Charlton Comics!
|Stages of development of Captain Atom. How can you forget about that original blue suit?|
All this and the second appearance of the all-new Blue Beetle (Ted Kord)! Along with a cameo by the original Blue Beetle (Dan Garrett).
