First, I don't think these are the final cover colors. These look like the flats and I'd expect a more fully rendered job when the book ships.
Interestingly, I was under the impression I was also inking this issue, mainly because it was a chance to work with Jerry Ordway, who's work I admire a great deal. I was planning on starting in another week or two so I guess I should check in and see if this is a solicit error or what.
I had a lot of fun writing this issue, so much so that I've been trying to worm my way back in and write some more Atom since. In fact, I'd say that if I were to take over a monthly writing assignment at DC, the Atom would be one of my top two choices...the other being Aquaman, which I would love to take a spin on.
Over and out for now...
