ATOM ARCHIVES VOL. 1 HC - (Gardner Fox/Gil Kane/Murphy Anderson) Reprints Showcase #34-36 and The Atom #1-5 (first published in 1961-1963). The first adventures of Ray Palmer, the science-hero who could shrink in size (thanks to his belt of White Dwarf Star material), are presented here. This details the Atom's origin and features appearances by JLA mascot Snapper Carr, the villainous time-bending Chronos, and the debut of Jason Woodrue, the Floronic Man. Other tales include the Atom confronting a tiny planet-hopping alien thief; solving the mystery of a modern-day curse held over from the Salem Witch Trials; preventing a communist spy from stealing America's secret plans for blowing up any incoming missiles; and stopping a telekinetic thief in his tracks. Introduction by Les Daniels. 224 pp.
