Agents of Atlas TPB v3: Turf Wars

What a delight this series is. I'll never understand how I got so skewed away from the main comic buying audience. This title is flat-out wonderful, and yet after a ton of chances, the current incarnation is being cancelled once again.

You know what? I'm just going to list some of the things in this comic that made it the best I've read in weeks.
  • Namor being a jerk
  • Marvel Boy falling in love with a sea anemone
  • A gorilla in a bubble helmet
  • Namor punching a shark
  • The line "We must have silence. Mr. Lao is sleeping" only Mr. Lau is a DRAGON
  • Cool, wandering Hulk
  • Gorilla Man as a sniper
  • Upgrades to M-11 so that he can fight...
  • Awesome M-21

And best of all, these crazy plot elements look fantastic, as drawn by Gabriel Hardman, Carlo Pagulayan, and Dan Panosian. Hardman's stuff in particular is stunning.
