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.
Barrel of Monkeys
by Florent Ruppert / Jérôme Mulot
If you ever needed a clear illustration of what one means by viciously funny, Ruppert and Mulot's Barrel of Monkeys is it. Available for the first time in English - the adventures of two portraitists underscore the dark nastiness of human existence.
Dear Beloved Stranger
by Dino Pai
Pai's art brings to life this story of a fresh-out-of-school artist looking for artistic identity.
Hellraisers: A Graphic Biography
by Robert Sellers / JAKe
Richard Burton, Richard Harris, Peter O’Toole, and Oliver Reed are not only four of the greatest actors of all time, they are also four of the greatest boozers. And the stories are legendary. This graphic novel weaves some of their hellraising stories together for a jolly good read.
