What you are feasting your eyes on here is photos of the actual Atomic County comic prop used during The O.C. filming. This rare and one of a kind Atomic County prop comic book was custom-made by the O.C. production team for use in various episodes of the series.

This specific version is the "hero" version, as it features special printed inner pages and extra fine details not given on non-close-up versions. There were several copies made but this is the special copy that was actually seen up-close and held by actors of the show. Exact measurements of this rare O.C. prop are 10" x 6.75".

Notice that only the first few pages contains Atomic County art, the rest was filled with some other comic to give it thickness (that way it appears to be real). Note: The full version of this comic can be viewed if you buy the special edition DVD box set (there is a special booklet inside).

This O.C. comic prop was up for auction in March 2015 on ScreenUsed.com (a now defunct prop auction site) - starting bid was $300 dollars and was never actually sold to our knowledge. Who knows where it's sitting now! Notice how it says on the front cover that its illustrated by Seth Cohen but on this above page (to the bottom right) it says Eric Wight. Eric Wight was the real artist that came up with all the artwork for Atomic County as well as the sketches Seth would be seen sketching. Want an Atomic County of your very own?
