yeah, i really liked it as well. i wish he was writing that as an ongoing instead of superboy. the story seemed more concise and focused, and the art was light years better.
Yeah, Superboy just really isn't my cup of tea. I know a lot of people are enjoying it, but I just can't seem to get into it.
Having barely read anything containing The Atom I was pleasantly pleased by how easy it was to follow the story and understand the character. I would definitely read more of Lemire's The Atom.
I had read a little bit of Atom in things like Justice League and the Countdown stuff, but other then that my experience had been very minimal. I actually had more knowledge of Ryan Choi having read that whole Atom series. I thought the same thing, I was glad I could get right into the story with no problem.
