The story concludes with a trip back to the Amazon jungle, capture by drug smugglers, and, finally, a reunion between the Atom and his alien lover.
In the second issue, Ray’s ex-wife is accidentally shrunk by his old machinery while she’s trying to dispose of it, necessitating a trip to the Amazon jungle by her and her lover to get help from the Atom. Everyone gets involved in a battle with a splinter group of diminutive bird-riders. Things eventually get sorted out and all’s well that ends well.
