Atomic Books Comics Preview - March 27, 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.

Glorkian Warrior Delivers A Pizza

Glorkian Warrior Delivers A Pizza
by James Kochalka

Kochalka's back with a fun, all-ages story (which is right in his wheelhouse) about a galactic pizza delivery man and his talking backpack.

Jans Atomic Heart And Other Stories

Jan's Atomic Heart And Other Stories
by Simon Roy

Half of the team that's made Image's Prophet series a hit delivers this collection of short comics stories - loaded with odd aliens. While Roy's awesome artwork might be the lure for many, his space stories are also pretty cool.

Occupy Comics

Occupy Comics
by Alan Moore / various

This volume collects the 3-issue series celebrating the ideas behind the Occupy Movement, featuring over 50 artists, including Alan Moore, Art Spiegelman, Joshua Hale Fialkov, Josh Dysart, Bill Ayers, Simon Spurrier, David Lloyd, Mike Allred, Charlie Adlard, Ben Templesmith, and many more. Occupy this comic!

Sandman Overture #2

Sandman Overture #2
by Neil Gaiman / J.H. Williams

So some deadlines were missed, well, the new issue of Sandman is here now, and it's gorgeous. Almost overwhelmingly so.

Silver Surfer #1

Silver Surfer #1
by Dan Slott / Michael Allred

Marvel restarts their Silver Surfer series, this time with Mike Allred doing the art (a stroke of genius, really). Slott's story captures the pop spirit of Allred's art - and the art really makes this book fun - there are times when the page almost seems too small to contain everything going on.

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.
