In the weekly Atomic Books Comics Preview, Benn Ray highlights notable new comics and graphic novels.
Atomic Books was recently named one of Bizarre Magazine's 51 geekiest places on the planet, as well as one of Flavorwire's 10 greatest comic and graphic novel stores in America.
I Want You #2
by Lisa Hanawalt
Lisa is one of the freshest, weirdest and funniest voices in comics. Her I Want You #1 ended up on tons of Year End best of lists for 2009 - including mine - and this issue is easily one of the best of 2010.
Intelligent Design Coloring Book
by Pastor Brett Pirkle
This coloring book answers all the questions so-called "Intelligent Design" raises - and, like the subject itself, the book is 100% fact free.
Let Me In: Crossroads #1
by Marc Andreyko / Patric Reynolds
Let The Right One In is easily one of the most messed-up (in a good way) vampire movies I've seen in ages. I have yet to see the American remake, but this comic mini-series serves as a prelude to it.
by Joyce Farmer
It's a serious and rewarding graphic novel memoir along the lines of Alison Bechdel's Fun Home or Harvey Pekar's Our Cancer Year.
ZMD: Zombies Of Mass Destruction
by Kevin Grevioux / David Youkovibch
You've just finished the last episode of this season's Walking Dead, and you're caught up on the comic series of the same name - yet you're hungry for more undead antics? Try ZMD - it answers the age-old question, can zombies be successfully weaponized by the American military? Suuuure... let's try that.
