Hell Yeah: A Classic Wrestling Coloring Book

Hell Yeah: A Classic Wrestling Coloring Book
by Mike Coley

This title is pretty appropriate as it's something you'll be saying to yourself a lot as you thumb through this art/coloring book - one side comes colored and the other is there for you to color in. The Macho Man, Koko B.Ware, Mankind, Hacksaw Jim Duggan, and more - all for your enjoyment! Hell yeah!

Henry Speaks for Himself

Henry Speaks for Himself
by John Liney

Reprinted for the first time since these strips ran in the 1940s/1950s, you can now enjoy the pranks of this oddball looking kid, Henry.

Nijigahara Holograph

Nijigahara Holograph
by Inio Asano / Matt Thorn (editor/translator)

Fantagraphics drops some gorgeous manga - Asano's artwork is just fantastic, and the story - well it involves the legend of a murderous beast, the possible end of the world and separate timelines. Complex, yes. But that complexity is earned.

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.
