The Atomic Terrier is everything we at WebComics.cc love about all ages comics. It’s exciting. It’s clean. It’s funny. It’s got heart. It’s also not too long, right now, relatively speaking. There’s just about 150 strips right now. Not a one-sitting read, really, but it’s not going to take you three months to catch up either. We also appreciate his updating speed — two pages a week means if you visit once a week or every couple weeks, there will be a couple comics waiting for you.
The story is also unique. You’ve got the young superhero, learning his powers. You’ve got a science fiction setting, with a futuristic Metropolis vibe. You’ve got some strange alien creatures and powerful mechanical beings. And, topping it all off, the world is populated by animals. Mainly dogs. (Excepting, of course, the strange alien creatures.)
But there’s also an interesting storyline, exploring the legacy of The Atomic Terrier’s powers (I love stories of superhero legacies) and one of the best origin stories I’ve seen:
Best origin story ever. (Go ahead and click – it’s not a spoiler, really, if you just look at this one strip.)
All these elements combine into an enjoyable read, and one worth your time. It’s not different just to be different, but it’s a well thought out world and story and we’re excited to see where it goes.
