Atomic Books Comics Preview - December 19, 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.

Found Magazine #9

Found Magazine #9
by Davy Rothbart

It's once again time for an annual dose of Found Magic. Found Magazine collects found notes, pictures, items and compiles them into a fascinating read. The first thing I do when a new issue comes out is anxiously thumb through it and see if any of the dozens of things I've sent them over the years make the issue. The next thing I do is sit back and read the magazine cover to cover.

Fritz Kahn

Fritz Kahn
by Fritz Kahn / Uta von Debschitz / Thilo von Debschitz

This gorgeous, hardcover, full color Taschen artbook presents the work of an early, German "infographics" pioneer. Find out why the Nazis ran him out of Germany and burned his books!

Wake: Part 1

Wake: Part 1
by Scott Snyder / Sean Murphy

In case you missed the first 5 issues of the epic sci-fi/horror series, Vertigo has collected them into this economical 112 page installment.

Yule Log

Yule Log
by Christopher Adams

The holidays can be a bit hazy, especially if you celebrate them like I do. Christopher Adams' art reflects that and illustrates that the line between a disaster and a happy holiday can be a thin one. Santa, airplanes, bleak snowy wasteland. Merry Christmas!
