Atomic's Final Cover Is Perfect, And Makes Us Feel Sad

Earlier this month Atomic Editor David Hollingworth announced that Atomic — as a magazine and a website — would be merging with PC & Tech Authority, meaning that Atomic, as a standalone magazine brand would be no more. I thought that was a shame. I’ve always thought that Atomic, in terms of its premise and the audience it served, was a really cool and unique proposal so I was sad to see it go.

Today it seems like subscribers are starting to get their copies of the final print edition of Atomic and it’s a beautiful, and slightly tragic thing.

I’ll be very sorry to see Atomic go. It looks as though the unique viewpoint that Atomic brought to PC gaming and tech is being integrated into PC & Tech Authority, so it’s not completely done and dusted, but still — thanks for everything!

Thanks Matthew!
