Thrill Murray

Thrill Murray
by Mike Coley / various

First you have the awesome Nirvana sticker book - loaded with artist-designed stickers all focusing on Cobain and pals. Then, there's Thrill Murray - a Bill Murray coloring book. Artist illustrations that you can color in on one side, and then the completed, full color artist's piece on the other to use as a guide or to contrast, who cares. It's a freakin' Bill Murray coloring book - and it's every bit as awesome as its title.

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.
