The story opens with Dorrie (superhero The Slug) waking to find that her husband Phil (superhero Black Crystal) has left her all alone on their anniversary. In his absence, she hangs out with her friends Luna (the titular It Girl) and Carla, who take her out on a boat and try to make her feel better. Meanwhile, Phil is underground, doing epic battle with gigantic gophers.
The characters are pretty interesting, visually. Both Phil and Dorrie have blue skin (in two different shades) and undergo dramatic transformations when they’re superheroing. Carla is black and yellow, with antennae and a tail . . . and a bikini. The only one who looks normal is It Girl, who’s drawn with typical superheroine proportions.
What any of these characters is actually able to do barely matters. It’s a fun, slightly silly, slightly generic, superhero adventure. Honestly, it would be fairly forgettable, except for the visuals. Between Carla and the giant gopher, It Girl and the Atomics #9 is at least worth a look.
