Atlas - Comic Book Series

Created by Dave Swartz and lettered by industry veteran Ed Brisson, Atlas is an all-new comic book series that explores the mysteriously TRUE nature of the reality we live. Many of us think we know who we are and what this thing we call existence really is. For some it's a religion, a science, a state of mind, but one thing remains true - everything is always more than it seems.
