Fight Frogs #2

Fight Frogs #2
by Jimmy Giegerich

Jimmy Giegerich's Fight Frogs are back, and this time they're battling the preppy Shit Sharks. Now with more fights!

Lucifer #1

Lucifer #1
by Holly Black / Lee Garbett

Picking up where the old series left off, and just in time for the premiere of the new FOX TV series of the same name, Lucifer returns to Earth at the same time that God is discovered dead. The Archangels send Gabriel after Lucifer, but if Vertigo comics have taught us anything over the years, it's that angels are bigger dicks than devils.

Patsy Walker AKA Hellcat #1

Patsy Walker AKA Hellcat #1
by Kate Leth / Brittney Williams

If you watched the Netflix series Jessica Jones and were left wanting more of Jessica's best friend Patsy Walker, this new series delivers just that.

Revenger Is Trapped

Revenger Is Trapped
by Charles Forsman

In this stand-alone issue, Revenger finds herself trapped in a pit, fighting her way out and then fighting a bunch of hillbillies. Did I mention fighting? There's a lot of fighting.

Test Tube

Test Tube
by Carlos Gonzalez

Test Tube is the sort of grimy, surreal comic, full of odd characters and odder ideas, that make underground comics so appealing. It's page after page of 6-panel grids, with each panel loaded with fascinating visual litter surrounding the characters living their lives in a mysterious city.

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.
