Convergence: The Atom #1 and #2

One of the most oddest two issue series in the Convergence event from DC Comics has to be Convergence: The Atom. The first issue has a really grim cover with Ray Palmer holding Ryan Choi in his hand after he was killed by Deathstroke.

Ray is trapped in the pre-Flashpoint Gotham City and he hear voices. People think he's nuts and it doesn't help that the only power that he has is that his hand grows big.

He gets his shrinking powers back when the dome disappears but then he has to face Barracuda of the Etremists:

At the end of Convergence: The Atom (June 2015), Ray Palmer realizes that he may not be imagining Ryan Choi's voice in his head.

The cover of Convergence #2: The Atom (July 2015) show both Ray Palmer and Ryan Choi in costume shrunken before Deathstroke:

The issue starts with the battle between Ray Palmer aka the Atom battling Barracuda of the Extremists. He talks to Ryan and finds out that he's trapped in the dimension where their mass goes when they shrink (gotta love comic book science). Ryan is the reason why Ray's had was growing big when he was under the dome.

 Barracuda is a real tough guy and cuts off the same hand of Ray's that he stabbed earlier with his trident. The weird part is that his hand grows into Ryan Choi in his Atom costume.

After the pair defeats Barracuda, Ray wakes up in the hospital with no sign of Ryan. Deathstroke sneaks into the hospital that nightand tries to kill Ray:

Thankfully, the ending is actually happy even though Ray only has one hand thanks to Barracuda. I really enjoyed these two issues and the artwork is great.
