Synopsis: Itís not easy being a super hero, as John Smith finds out in this adventure story that never letís up from the first page to the last. Heís a normal kid, dogged by the same forces we all were at school, bullyís, teacherís and the opposite sex. But Johnís life takes an abnormal turn when he gets caught up in a scientific experiment that literally blows him into a world of antimatter. Hard to imagine? Not really. You see two crazy half brothers who hate one another have teamed up to find the secret of eternal life and the ability to make your own cash. Itís an ancient concept, itís what the alchemistís were after. But once in the Antiworld John is charged with the task of saving that world and his own from destruction by The Master of the Perfect Word. Add in two witty Jocks, a budding romance, a dragon lady, and a soldier of fortune, and the recipe for adventure is complete. The Atomic Kid is about change and adapting to it rather than running away from it, and using his new ability to change John shapes the course of history for everyone, but more importantly he changes his point of view about growing up, when in the end he turns the tables on himself.
