Atom #32

Atom #32 (On Sale: June 1, 1967) has a cool, if not misleading, cover by Gil Kane.

Inside we have "The Up and Down Dooms of the Atom" by Gardner Fox, Gil Kane and Sid Greene. Ray Palmer is struck by an experimental device that placed him is a state of paralysis. A side effect gives him limited telepathic abilities which enable him to pass a message to Jean Loring. Without her understanding, Ray gets her to activate the size controls on his invisible atom costume. Ray then shrinks out of sight.

At microscopic size, Ray regains the ability to move. However, he knows that if he returns to normal size, he will die.
