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.

This acclaimed graphic novel reads like a psychedelic Flintstones on a stream-of-consciousness adventure.
by Jason Turner
Hester is having an leisurely post-apocalypse - hunting animals, escorting kids, delivering library books. Farm School reads like a Hunger Games, without the games, or the TV show Revolution - but good. I'm hoping Turner continues to develop this world.
Posada And Manilla: Illustrations for Mexican Fairy Tales
by Mercurio Casillas / Jose Posada / Manuel Manilla
Mexico, in the late 1800s, there lived two hugely influential and inspiring giants of illustration - Posada and Manilla. Here they are collected together for the first time on the 100th anniversary of Posada's death. Children's penny press illustrations and engravings at their finest and most affordable.
