seriously, give them a shot, because they are really cool people and atomic robo kicks all kinds of ass! i haven't had the chance to read the other books they sent, but flipped through them. neozoic is interesting - the comet or asteroid or whatever killed the dinosaurs - well, in their reality it was knocked out of its trajectory by another asteroid, so eventually humans evolved in a world where dinosaurs still exist. 'abyss' is apparently about a super-villain who died or something. the first cover looks like the cover to superman #75, but with the bad guy's cape there instead of the superman one.
