The All New Atom #15
The first page spoils one aspect of The Sinestro Corps War, but if you've been looking at Previews, this aspect has already been spoiled. The first page also consists of a lot of exposition. This is all thanks to this issue being a crossover with Countdown.

But then, thankfully, a giant hand literally reaches out of the sky, plucks Ryan out of this crossover, and back into his own story. Never has such an obvious deus ex machina been so appreciated.

Of course crazy things are happening back in Ivy Town, which is what makes it a fun place! Two giant monsters, somehow brought to life from Z-grade movies, are causing havok. Since Ryan has been away in the microverse, his friends have tried to pick up the slack, to humorous, if still heroic, effect. There is a big twist towards the end which is both hilarious and completely WRONG. You have to read it to appreciate it.
