Atomic Books Comics Preview - December 29th, 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.

Batman: The Dark Knight #1
by David Finch / Scott Williams

This new, ongoing Batman title delves into the more horror/supernatural elements of Gotham City.

by Pascal Girard

The story of how a viral Youtube video turns Jimmy from a sweet kid with potential into a pathetic town joke.

by Emi Lenox

A year's worth of wonderful diary comics.

John Carter of Mars: Weird Worlds
by Marv Wolfman / Howard Chaykin / various

When you think of Edgar Rice Burroughs, most folks think of Tarzan. One of his other creations is about to get the movie treatment - John Carter of Mars. It's kind of like Tarzan in space.

Usagi Yojimbo: The Special Edition
by Stan Sakai

If you feel like you just can't get enough of Stan Sakai's acclaimed samurai rabbit comic, this 2 volume set should easily tide you over.
