Atom Ad


Here's an ad for when the Atom first recieved his own title. One of the very first comic books I remember buying for myself in that magical year of 1966 was THE ATOM. Although the character of Doll Man had mined some of the same shrinking schtick years earlier at Quality, editor Julius Schwartz and writer Gardner Fox pulled out all the stops in this Silver Age series. While the pseudo science sometimes confused the issue, there was enough real science in this series that many kids--myself included--managed to ace our school science tests on a regular basis!
