by John Dermot Woods

I was asked to give a blurb for this book, so I did. Gladly. So here's what I said: "John Dermot Woods has a remarkably agile illustration style that well serves this collection of comics stories – each reading and feeling as sharp and poignant as any prose short story – with the ending leaving the reader to meditate on what they’ve just consumed. Woods takes the seemingly commonplace - a found shoe, a dead cat, a game of king of the hill - to unexpected and remarkable places."


March Book 1

March Book One
by John Lewis / Andrew Aydin / Nate Powell

Civil rights icon and congressman John Lewis tells his fascinating story in this first book (of a trilogy) with typically great artwork by Nate Powell. And just in time too, seeing as how the US Supreme Court has gutted the Voting Rights Act and certain states (you know who you are) are quickly passing new, discriminatory voting regulations.

Questions, concerns, comments or gripes – e-mail benn@atomicbooks.com. If there’s a comic I should know about, send it my way at Atomic, c/o Atomic Books 3620 Falls Rd., Baltimore, MD 21211.
