Atomic Books Comics Preview - November 28, 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.

A Rule Is To Break: A Child's Guide to Anarchy

A Rule Is To Break: A Child's Guide to Anarchy
by John Seven / Jana Christy

This isn't a comic, it's an illustrated kids book, but it's a kids book designed to help encourage anti-authoritarian, rebellious kids.

Dante's Inferno

Dante's Inferno
by Kevin Jackson / Hunt Emerson

British writer Jackson and cartoonist Emerson tackle Dante's epic, but with the intent to fix it up a bit. They bring in some thing the classic sorely lacks - jokes. The Inferno re-imagined in funny comic form.


by Alexandro Jodorowsky / Jean-Claude Gal

This hardcover collection presents Jodorowsky's sci-fi/fantasy collaboration with artist Gal in English for the first time. Diosamante is the story of a beautiful and cruel Queen, draped in mysticism.


by Jon McNaught

From Nobrow Press comes McNaught's gorgeous story of several average lives being lived, set against the backdrop of the oncoming Autumn. It's an average town, average people, having average moments - but it's also beautiful.

The Technopriests Supreme Collection

The Technopriests Supreme Collection
by by Alexandro Jodorowsky / Zoran Janjetov / Fred Beltran

An extravagant and limited slipcased hardcover collection of Jodorowsky's sci-fi tale of a journey to become a technopriest. One of Jodorowsky's best works - collected into a well-deserved deluxe format.
