Agents of Atlas #2 Review

Recently reviewed by me at CBR: Agents of Atlas #2, about which I write the following sentences: "There's plenty of Gorilla-Man in this issue, don't worry, but Parker knows how to walk the line between serious and winking-to-the reader. Parker knows Gorilla-Man is ridiculous, Gorilla-Man knows he's ridiculous, but neither of them flaunt it. Instead, we're treated to a tough-talking hero in the manner of the Thing, but without the constant longing for humanity. Gorilla-Man seems perfectly fine being who he is. The rest of the Agents of Atlas seem similarly comfortable with their place in the world, with the exception of former S.H.I.E.L.D. agent Jimmy Woo, who uses his strange position as new leader of his father's criminal syndicate to do good, instead of evil. The Agents of Atlas are kind of like the Bizarro Thunderbolts, doing good deeds while pretending to be bad."
