Atomic Books Comics Preview - September 28, 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.

Battle Kittens: The Art Of R. Dart.
by Rebecca Dart

If you like kittens, and you like battles - you'll love the genius of this collection of Rebecca Dart's art which pairs the two at long last!

by Maurice Sendak

Maurice (Where The Wild Things Are, In The Night Kitchen) Sendak has his first new book in years.

Dawn Of The Bunny Suicides
by Andy Riley

Another fun compendium of suicidal bunny gags.

Holy Terror
by Frank Miller

It's been roughly 25 years since Frank Miller used Batman to show that comics can be more than childish nonsense. With Holy Terror, he seeks to undo all that. This neo-fascistic terror-porn is perfect filler for folks who miss Fox's right wing torture snuff fantasy 24. It's delicious, anti-PC, '90s-era reactionaryism (complete with an unnecessary Michael Moore swipe) in a Sin City vein. And whoever made the decision that this should not be a Batman comic, because it's pretty damn Batmanish, has my undying gratitude.

Love and Rockets: New Stories #4
by by Los Bros Hernandez

One of the best Love & Rockets ever. Look, it's a hard series to know where to start, just pick this book up and go from there.
