In the weekly Atomic Books Comics Preview, Benn Ray highlights notable new comics and graphic novels.

Chuck Jones: Dream That Never Was
by Chuck Jones

The research into the Academy Award-winning Warner Bros. animator's comic creation uncovered a treasure trove of previously unseen work, and it's presented here in all its stunning glory.

Comics Class
by Matt Forsythe

Forsythe taught a comics class. Fortunately for us, it didn't go well. He documents it here with hilarious results.

Fables Volume 16: Super Team
by Bill Willingham

If you're wrestling with which TV show to commit to, Grimm or Once Upon A Time, you may want to take a brief break and read the newest collection of the comic series that really is responsible for the modern comeback of the fairy tale.

Fat Tarino
by Ashley Wood

A beautiful, slip-cased, limited edition hardcover of Ashely Wood's artwork collected from his three Fanta books.

My Favorite Martian: The Complete Season Volume 1

I was a fan of the old TV show that spawned this comic series, and as a result, this beautiful archival collection of the series brings me more joy than it really should.

Raw Power #1
by Josh Bayer

The newest installment in the monthly Retrofit comics project is an oversized classic underground-looking comic by the always entertaining Bayer.

The Strain #1
by David Lapham / Mike Huddleston

Filmaker Guillermo Del Toro and author Chuck Hogan's vampire epidemic novel series gets the comic treatment.

The Walking Dead Volume 15: We Find Ourselves

The perfect salve for those still itching for more zombies during the season break of the hit AMC TV show.
