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.

Breathe Deeply
by Doton Yamaaki

This beautiful, literary manga is a medical thriller involving a love triangle, illness and lies.

Cinema Sewer #25
by Robin Bougie

One of the things I always get excited for early in the new year is a new issue of Cinema Sewer - the most compulsively readable zine on sleaze cinema out there (it may also have the added advantage of being the only one). This issue has Nazisploitation, daredevil documentaries of the 1970s, and more!

Nature of the Beast: A Graphic Novel
by Adam Mansbach / Douglas McGowan / Owen Brozman

It's a graphic novel from the writer of the phenomenon that is Go The F*ck To Sleep. It's all religious extremist aliens, holy war, annihilation, and a gator wrestler from the Florida swamps who may be Earth's only hope.

Questions, concerns, comments or gripes – e-mail If there’s a comic I should know about, send it my way at Atomic, c/o Atomic Books 3620 Falls Rd., Baltimore, MD 21211.
