In the weekly Atomic Books Comics Preview, Benn Ray highlights notable new comics, graphic novels, and books.
Atomic Books has been named one of BuzzFeed's Great American Bookstores, as well as one of Flavorwire's 10 greatest comic and graphic novel stores in America.

I would say "Feel The Bern" if I didn't think it sounded creepy. Can we all acknowledge that it sounds creepy and just stop saying it now? Regardless, Rall presents current Democratic presidential candidate Bernie Sanders in graphic novel form.
Founding Fathers Funnies
by Peter Bagge
Bagge's hilarious take on the the Founding Fathers is both amusing and informative. But mostly, it's just a lot of ridiculous fun.
Sugar Spread #1: Coloring Book for Adults
by Robin Bougie
Robin Bougie, of Cinema Sewer fame, delivers this Adult Coloring Book in which he really puts the ADULT in "Adult Coloring Book." You'll feel weird coloring in some of this stuff - but weird in an interesting way.
Zap Comix #16
by Robert Crumb / various
Years in the making - well, years in the waiting - the final issue of the seminal underground comix anthology is finally here. All of the Zap artists have pieces in this issue, including a few group jams. This isn't just a comic, this is history being made here.
