Atomic Books Comics Preview - February 15th, 2012

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.

Athos in America
by Jason

Athos collects several Jason's comics novellas into one lush edition. It includes prequels to other stories (like the title which is a lead in to his Three Musketeers), and recurring characters from other Jason stories.

Marvel Zombies: Supreme
by Frank Marraffino / Fernando Blanco

I know it should be getting old, but it just hasn't. If you like zombies and superhero comics, Marvel Zombies brings the two together. You'll be surprised at how much fun it is seeing your favorite heroes zombified.

Three Brews Volume 1: Meet The Brews
by Karen Tinney

These three brews are like three brahs. They have the same concerns/conversations as typical dudes. In fact, they basically are dudes. Hanging out. Talking to each other. They just happen to look like cans of the kind of beer dudes like these would drink. Pretty ingenious. Pretty funny.

Vortex #1
by William Cardini / Mark P. Hensel

It's all staticy, pyschedelic sci-fi swordplay in this new series by Hensel/Cardini.
