A Preview of Doc Solaris #1


From the solicitation:

Doctor Solar, Man of the Atom #1

Writer: Jim Shooter
Artist: Dennis Calero
Cover Artist: Michael Komarck (Variant by Calero)

Empowered by a thermonuclear catastrophe, Doctor Solar discovers that he can control energy. Immeasurable strength is his at a whim. Power beyond imagination courses through his body. But he knows that the same kind of science run amok that created him can also empower the wicked. In the aftershock of the cataclysm that created Doctor Solar, ripples throughout space time imbue one Whitmore Pickerel with the power to create life — which he uses to serve his selfish desires and reckless ambitions. His newly created being, Leviathan, invulnerable and immeasurably strong, clashes with the Man of the Atom in a fierce battle that ravages the city. Meanwhile, for his personal amusement, Pickerel creates Glow, a living fantasy of unearthly charms . . . and deadly possibilities!

* Special bonus for this supersized issue: the very first Doctor Solar story from 1962!

* Doctor Solar, Man of the Atom #1 is but the first act in an explosive program that will also see Shooter reimagine Magnus, Robot Fighter and Turok, Son of Stone for the twenty first century!

* Jim Shooter (former Valiant Comics editor in chief) returns to the character he redefined in the 1990s!
