Ten Things I Learned from the Attack of Jean Loring's Brain
DC UNIVERSE ONLINE LEGENDS #7-8This month looks to be a good time to mention that I'm not sure there will be an Atomic acCounting next month. Lemire's Atom back-up/specials are at an end, as has JLA/The 99, and Brightest Day has come to a close. Captain Atom's monthly showcase in Justice League: Generation Lost has also gone missing. Unless the Atom continues to be relevant through DC Universe Online Legends, I don't have much to work with.

JSA ALL-STARS #18What about Nuklon, you ask? Canceled this month. I can finally stop worrying about constantly forgetting to mention this title. Whose bright idea was it to launch a JSA spin-off just after its guiding force of the last decade finally retired from the flagship anyway?
