Atomic Books Comics Preview - October 22, 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.


Bumf Volume 1: Buggered The Kaiser

Bumf Volume 1: Buggered The Kaiser
by Joe Sacco

The early 1990s was a time rich with surrealist underground comics: famous for artists like Jim Woodring and seminal works Ed The Happy Clown by Chester Brown and Like A Velvet Glove Cast in Iron by Daniel Clowes. Joe Sacco, primarily known for his comics reportage of war zones, has taken his decidedly conflict-based frame of reference and turned in this first installment Bumf, a modern take on the surrealist underground comic. Bumf if ripe with post 9/11 images, Nixon, and a hard focus on buggering. It's brilliant, bizarre fun - loaded with intricate linework and a story that delights in both disorienting and reorienting the reader. Essentially what he have here is a new modern, underground, surrealist comics masterpiece.


Cream City Maryland #1

Cream City Maryland #1
by Andre Novak / Grace Slit

This new zine looks at the sleazy underbelly of Maryland. Cream City includes reviews of Ladies Night at a strip club, a playlist of Baltimore music to have sex to, a survey of Baltimore glory holes, and an overview of the sexy art from Baltimore's Club music scene. This zine provides a unique and fascinating look at the sexlife of folks in the "Land of Pleasant Living."


Poet Poe #1

Poet Poe #1
by R. Sikoryak

Poet Poe was initially done as a 24 (or in this case 26) hour comics challenge. Sikoryak takes Edgar Allan Poe's famous poems "The Raven," "Alone" and "The Conqueror Worm" and adapts them to fun comics form, with Poe given a classic Harvey Comics/Richie Rich-esque style. The inside back cover also includes a layout for "Annabel Lee" that you can use to draw your own adaptation if you so desire.


Subterranean Level: 6XZ03188V

Subterranean Level: 6XZ03188V
by Rodger Binyone

It's been a long time since I've seen such precise screenprinting. Subterranean Level is the story of a mission gone wrong. It's also a publication as art object. Page after page of beautiful art - oh yeah, and break out the blacklight to get the full effect, this sucker was printed with UV ink.


Questions, concerns, comments or gripes – e-mail benn@atomicbooks.com. 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.
