Doctor Solar, Man of the Atom cover #5, by Michael Kormarck
I’ve been waiting to pick up the trade paperback compilation of Doctor Solar, Man of the Atom but I’m awful tempted to pick this one up just for the new Michael Kormarck cover. Each of the first 5 covers by Kormarck so far have been great and its a real treat to see him working on the covers for one of my favorite characters (the early Valiant years, not Gold Key…I’m not that quite that old yet)! Here’s hoping these covers are included in the TPB release…
If you’re inclined to pick up the single issue, it’ll be on store shelves later this month.
DOCTOR SOLAR, MAN OF THE ATOM #5
Jim Shooter (W), Roger Robinson (A), Agustin Alessio (A/C), Wes Dzioba (C), and Michael Komarck (Cover)

Doctor Solar, the Man of the Atom, is the greatest single power in existence. But Tanek Nuro, a ruthless global power broker, has acquired the key code to the operating system of the universe, and he means to change things. With no limit to Nuro’s monstrous ambition and only Doctor Solar in his way, a war of biblical proportions starts now. Also starting now, the origin saga of the Man of the Atom. How did a middle-aged man of science come to command the fires of creation? Everything you know . . . and everything you didn’t . . . comes to the fore in this double-feature extravaganza not to be missed!
