Know. See. Feel. Truth.

"Know. See. Feel. Truth." from Captain Atom vol.3 #10 (DC, 2012) by J.T. Krul and Freddie Williams II
I was, I think, one of the few fans of the New52 version of Captain Atom, and I'm as surprised as you are about that given how critical I've been of Krul's writing in the past (and concurrently). His work, to me, has been either outrageously sensationalistic (Arsenal) or ordinary and dull (Green Arrow). Here, it's neither. Maybe it was more Doc Manhattan than it was Captain Atom in areas, but it was somewhat experimental, had a story to tell about yielding ultimate power, some really weird ideas about the Captain's future, and some really neat art by Williams. RIP Captain Atom volume 3.
