In the weekly Atomic Books Comics Preview, Benn Ray highlights notable new comics and graphic novels.
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.
by Victor "Bald Eagles" Cayro
Don't let the awesome grotesque Wolverine scene on the cover fool you, Victor Cayro's (AKA Bud Eagles) first solo comic is a modern romance comic of sorts - but a magnificently unhinged one with art that looks like the missing link between Robert Williams and Joe Coleman.
One Trick Rip-Off / Deep Cuts
by Paul Pope
Anytime a Paul Pope book comes out, it's cause for celebration. And this freshly colored, gorgeous hardcover of some of his early work also comes with a hearty helping of some of his other rare and previously unpublished work. Escape - rip-offs, street gangs, a battle to the death - The One Trick Rip-Off is pure Pope.
