In the weekly Atomic Books Comics Preview, Benn Ray highlights notable new comics and graphic novels.
Atomic Books has been 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.
Bob Powell's Terror: The Chilling Archives Of Horror Comics
by Bob Powell/Craig Yoe (editor)
Another fantastic Craig Yoe-edited archival comics collection. Extraordinarily gruesome and imaginative horror comics from the 1950s.
by Paul Aulisio
The newest installment in the Retrofit Comics project (13 new comics in 13 months, each by a different creator) is a surreal space odyssey.
by Warren Ellis / Raulo Caceres
Transmetropolitan creator Warren Ellis delivers a steampunky treat set in 1830s London.
Princess Knight Part 1
by Osamu Tezuka
In this fairy tale story from the manga master, Princess Sapphire must pretend to be a prince in order to inherit the throne. It reads sort of like Snow White meets Sailor Moon.
