Atomic Books Comics Preview - February 26, 2014

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.

Cinema Sewer #27

Cinema Sewer #27
by Robin Bougie

It's an annual event! The new issue of Bougie's sleazy cinema magazine - straight from the gutters. There's some surprisingly extra well-written and researched articles in this issue. Warning - this zine is Adults Only!

Number 1

Number 1
by Box Brown

I hope what Box is doing here more cartoonists start doing - he's beginning a new, ongoing comic anthology of his own work. This issue contains two stories, one involving a wise wrestler and one about a documentary filmmaker.

Weekend Alone

Weekend Alone
by Noah Van Sciver

Weekend For Two

Weekend For Two
by Noah Van Sciver

These two books collect work straight from Noah's sketchbooks and straight out of his head. And it's unfiltered Van Sciver in full color! It includes his now legendary Johnny Cash story and more. Noah's sketchbooks are better than most people's final, finished books.

Questions, concerns, comments or gripes – e-mail 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.
