Atomic Books Comics Preview - September 8, 2010

In the weekly Atomic Books Comics Preview, Benn Ray highlights notable new comics and graphic novels.

Benn Ray is the owner of Atomic Books, an independent bookstore in Baltimore. The Mobtown Shank is his blog, and his comic Said What? is syndicated weekly in the Baltimore Sun's B-Paper.

Atomic Books was recently named one of Bizarre Magazine's 51 geekiest places on the planet.

Anthology Project Volume 1
by various

If you like gorgeous and eclectic comic anthologies with captivating stories, you'll want to see Anthology Project. It's definitely for fans of things like the Flight series.

Cuba: My Revolution
by Inverna Lockpez / Dean Haspiel

Havana-born writer Inverna Lockpez taps into her own experiences to create this story about an artist and revolutionary who is caught between ideology and idealism and pays a heavy price in Castro's Cuba. Beautifully illustrated by Dean Haspiel.

Dr. Horrible
by Zack Whedon / Eric Canete / Farel Dalrymple / Joelle Jones / Jim Rugg / Dan Jackson

If you couldn't get enough of Dr. Horrible's Sing-Along Blog, this graphic novel compiles some of the early adventures of Captain Hammer and Dr. Horrible and answers questions that may still be lingering for fans of the show.

Drinking At The Movies
by Julia Wertz

Fart Party organizer Julia Wertz constructs her first, official, full-length memoir that is every bit as funny and charming as her Fart Party strips. For Fart Party members, it reads as a behind-the-scenes that fills in a lot of dots - and for the uninitiated - well, I envy you for having the chance to read Wertz for the first time!

Rigor Mortis #3
by various

I may be going outside the comics genre a little bit, but I really need to point out this excellent zombie-zine done by some ghoulish friends of mine. Gorgeous illustrations and an in-depth look at the world of the undead - it's a great resource to turn you on to more monstrous treats!

Questions, concerns, comments or gripes – e-mail If there’s a comic I should know about, send it my way at Atomic, c/o Atomic Books 3620 Falls Rd., Baltimore, MD 21211.
