Atomic Books Comics Preview - November 16th, 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 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.

Bowman #1
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.

Captain Swing
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.
