Atomic Books Comics Preview - December 8th, 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, 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.

Special Exits
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.

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.
