Atomic Books Comics Preview - April 6, 2011

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.

Aaron And Ahmed
by Jay Cantor / James Romberger

This Vertigo original graphic novel wrestles with the question of how are terrorists born and what causes radicalism.

Burn Collector #15
by Al Burian

The new issue of Al Burian's long-running, much beloved zine shows the author reflecting on his year living in Berlin.

Giant-Sized Tales To Suffice
by Kenny Keil

A fun collection of parody comics stories.

Madman Atomica
by Mike Allred

This big beast of a book collects Allred's comics of his weirdo superteam The Atomics - also starring Madman.

Madman: All-New Giant-Size Super Ginchy Special!
by Mike Allred / various

This new oneshot features several Madman stories by Allred and several other comics creators and a nice pin-up section.

Marvel Zombies Volume 5
by Fred Van Lente / various

The only way the Marvel Zombies could get any more fun is by adding Howard the Duck to the mix, and that's just what Volume 5 does.

by Pascal Girard

This autobiographical comedy is perfect for anyone who has ever (or thinks they may one day be so inclined to) suffer through a high school reunion. Girard is already being called one of the best North American cartoonists under 30. Reunion shows why.
