I guess not even Jeff Parker can make a last issue for a series needing lots more issues work. Parker gives Bob a romance and then takes it away. So cruel.
The issue ends with Bob joining Jimmy and the rest of the Atlas team (before they were know as Atlas, right?). I’d completely forgotten he might join up with them before the series ended. I’d forgotten it was a tie-in to something else. I was just so impressive with what Parker is able to do with only three issues.
There are a couple problematic things this issue–there’s a very unlikely giant monster and the series ends with a problematic personal moment for Bob. It’s a great scene, it just isn’t an organic narrative development.
There’s also this great fight scene with a goofy science villain.
I hope Marvel lets Parker keep going with these Atlas spinoff series.
