Review: Atlantis Wasn’t Built For Tourists #2

Written by Eric Palicki

Lovecraft meets Leone in a modern tale of corruption,  family legacies, and nightmarish dread. The monsters tormenting Atlantis County have revealed themselves, and Lucas Lewis sets in motion his plan to rid the town of their scourge forever. Too bad for Lucas, the town of Atlantis has yet to give up all its secrets, and do its citizens even want to be saved?

This is one of those comics that hits you with something you didn’t see coming in every issue. At least, so far.

Stories about small towns with big secrets really hit the spot for me, since I’m from and currently reside in a small town. Our secrets aren’t as cool as the fictional ones with curses or monsters, etc, so it’s a fun fictional escape. Atlantis Wasn’t Built For Tourists really satisfies my urge to read about small town creepiest, while tackling original characters, themes, and giving us a story that’s hard to predict – which can be difficult.

The way it’s written is excellent, of course, but it’s brought to life by a whole team effort – the art, the beautiful tones set by the colors, the lettering – it all sets readers up for the perfect visuals to the story, to completely immerse you.
