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.
The newest installment in the acclaimed Batman Black & White series reminds us of how awesome the Dark Knight looks when you strip away the color and focus on some really intense black and white line work. Batman Black & White - the cool Batman series.
Colour Me Good: Benedict Cumberbatch
by Mel Elliott
My favorite British actor with the most British-y name, my favorite Sherlock Holmes and my second favorite Khan gets his own coloring book!
This activity book is for the more advanced child who really wants to get into some serious drawing. Will appeal to the aspiring Metal, demonic, psychedelic, punk rock and just plain monster doodler.
by Mark Evanier / Sergio Aragones / Tom Yeates
Not since Archie Vs. Punisher (yes, that crossover really existed) has there been a match-up so odd and yet so fun. This is what it looks like when a parody character meets the character he parodies. It's the first of a several issue mini-series.
League Of Extraordinary Gentlemen Volume 3: Century
by Alan Moore / Kevin O'Neill
This nice, chunky hardcover collects the last 3 series of issues from Moore's acclaimed League series into a Technicolor delight.
Zombies Have Issues
by Greg Stones
In his follow-up to the surprisingly funny and oddly beautiful Zombies Hate Stuff, Stones still manages to find laugh-out-loud zombie scenarios while delivering captivating art.
