This graphic novel collection reprints all of the Atomic Nights stories from 1960-64. On October 29th, 1986 the Great Atomic War began, which almost destroyed the world. There is no planet life, few animals, and humans scavenge for canned goods. Gardner Grayle, an average soldier, is running from a mob through the ruins of a city. He vaguely remembers about the war and his memory slowly comes back. He manages to lose them--but they attack another guy, who he rescues. This is Douglas Herald, a school teacher. He informs Grayle about the power hungry Black Baron. This guy has a beard and wears a black outfit with a big red "B" on his chest, so there's no confusion who he is. Grayle and the teacher discover that some ancient suits of ancient armor neutralize the deadly rays from modern weapons--and so use them to stand up to the the Baron and his gang of thugs. A scientist named Bryndon joins them, as does the woman Marene, the teacher's sister. They encounter a huge crystalline monster, some people who have reverted back to cavemen, electronic monsters, Atlanteans, aliens, molemen from beneath the Earth, killer plants, more aliens, and feral kids. Keep in mind that all these stories take place a few years after World War III.
I was entertained by this, as it has the vibe of 1950's B-movie, though by today's standards this is all a bit quaint and unbelievable.
