Atomic Books Comics Preview - September 11, 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.


by Frank Santoro

Santoro is a thinking person's cartoonist. He puts as much thought into his art as he puts ink to the paper. Forget Frank Miller's 300, forget Age of Bronze - Santoro's Pompeii is a far more rewarding story set thousands of years ago.

Rasl Complete

Rasl Complete
by Jeff Smith

Jeff Smith turns to famed cult scientist Nikolas Tesla as the subject for his follow-up to his beloved Bone. The result is a gritty, paranoid, hard-boiled fantasy epic.

School Spirits

School Spirits
by Anya Davidson

Davidson's School Spirits is a trippy epic yarn, with crazy-good art that is at once underground and modern.

Woman Rebel: The Margaret Sanger Story

Woman Rebel: The Margaret Sanger Story
by Peter Bagge

Bagge turns in his best art since his Hate comics days in this well-researched biography of pioneer Margaret Sanger - an outspoken birth control activist.
