Atomic Books Comics Preview - April 10, 2013

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.


'Tain't the Meat... It's the Humanity! and Other Stories (The EC Comics Library)

Fantagraphics continues its excellent series of EC Comics Library editions with two new books. 'Tain't The Meat collects some of Jack Davis's Tales from The Crypt stories which highlight his masterful balance of gore, humor and terror. 50 Girls 50 collects some of Al Williamson's classic tales from Weird Science and Weird Fantasy which stand as landmarks in comics sci-fi/fantasy.


3 New Stories

3 New Stories
by Dash Shaw

Dash Shaw is a modern comics master. He experiments with everything from structure to narrative to color. If you're unfamiliar with his work, he's sort of like Gary Panter illustrating a Chris Ware story, or, in this case, 3 stories of dystopian societies.


Mind MGMT Volume 1

Mind MGMT Volume 1
by Matt Kindt

Matt Kindt delivers a fun thrill-ride and mindbender in an Inception/Trance sort of way. Memories are managed, reality is altered, psychics are lethal and dolphins talk.


Unico

Unico
by Osamu Tezuka

Just how adorable is this full color Tezuka epic about an adventurous unicorn's world travels? Look at the cover image again. That's how adorable.
