In the weekly Atomic Books Comics Preview, Benn Ray highlights notable new comics and graphic novels.
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.

This excellent, retro space opera reads like a funny, alternative Infinity Gauntlet meets Guardians of the Galaxy - but way cooler than both.
Wicked Vibes #2
by Dillon Hallen
Wicked Vibes is like an indie/alternative Creepy or Eerie. Inspired by those kinds of horror anthologies - Hallen's stable of artists provide a refreshing array of styles that keep you turning pages.
by James Stokoe
It's another cool, intergalactic epic of a graphic novel. This one will appeal to fans of Brandon Graham and Tampopo (the classic cult movie).
