It’s been a while since we’ve had a new Rebirth one-shot, so here we go. Basically this book gives us the back story to that Atom story we saw back in DC Universe Rebirth. For those of us of who aren’t very familiar with Ryan Choi, the second Atom, this issue fills us in. Basically he’s like the Wally West of the Atom. We see Ryan Choi and Ray Palmer do their superhero thing in the early New 52 years under all of our noses. We can expect the Atom to be a part of the new Justice League of America title coming out next month, along side a very interesting team. As for what happened to Ray Palmer, I wouldn’t be surprised if he’s one of Mr. Oz’s prisoners that we will see down the line. Cool book, be sure to check out the next three Rebirth titles due to come out later this month.

Harley Quinn #11
After seeing several clues and momentos of their time together popping up in Harley’s life, The Joker finally shows up at her house to reveal his master plan (or so we are lead to believe), which is to get Harley back. Harley seems very reluctant yet intrigued by his offer to meet in public to talk more about the two of them. This of course rubs Red Tool (Harley’s current somewhat love interest) the wrong way, prompting him to be overprotective of her. The interactions between the Joker and Red Tool prove to be great entertainment as both automatically show animosity towards each other straight to the end of the issue. Especially when Red Tool shows up in Harley’s place to meet Joker. When Red Tool tells Joker to leave Harley alone, and then Joker’s response to it is “Make me”, it gets you excited for the next issue just to see the confrontation that will come about from this. -Jay, H&F San Antonio
