Atomic Books Comics Preview - December 12, 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 BuzzFeed's Great American Bookstores, as well as one of Flavorwire's 10 greatest comic and graphic novel stores in America.


Bitch Planet #1

Bitch Planet #1
by Kelly Sue DeConnick / Valentine De Landro

This new series by DeConnick and De Landro is a comic version of a feminist, sci-fi, women in prison, sexploitation flick. Think Orange Is The New Black meets Barbarella starring Pam Grier. There's an awesome feminist essay in the back, and the back cover is loaded with ads for patriarchy. It's a fascinating vision, one I'm very curious to see developed.


Cars

Cars
by Gary Kachadourian

I can look at drawings of monster cars and old comics like CARtoons while talking old Weird-Ohs-type model kits for hours. In fact, I did exactly that with the artist of this book earlier this week at our Eightbar. Gary draws a host of iconic vehicles in "kustom" form here. It's page after page of psycho-hot rods! Looking at his Cars reminds me of looking through one of my old middle school notebooks - only, y'know, with much better art.


Eamon Espey Holiday Card Set

Eamon Espey Holiday Card Set
by Eamon Espey

Each year I endeavor to find holiday cards that will befuddle, alarm and/or disturb my family - and Eamon's holiday card set is what I sent out this year. Have YOU been good? Oh yeah, and Eamon also just came out with a new issue of his awesomely strange comic series, Wormdye.


The Existential Coloring Book

The Existential Coloring Book
by Archie McPhee

The pages and lines in this coloring book are as empty as existence itself. But here at least you can fill the void of nothingness with color. Loaded with quotes from Sartre, Kirkegaard, Camus, Kafka, Steven Wright and Woody Allen. Consistently hilarious - but my favorite is the Existentialist Connect the Dot which reveals the truth of existence.


Mutiny On The Mousey

Mutiny On The Mousey
by Steven Weissman

Never has Mutiny On The Bounty been this adorable. Weissman retells the story with cats and mice in a full color mini-comic format. If you're a sucker for all things cats and a sucker for a sea-farin' tale, Mousey will have you hooked.


Sub Pop USA: The Subterranean Pop Music Anthology, 1980–1988

Sub Pop USA: The Subterranean Pop Music Anthology, 1980–1988
by Bruce Pavitt

In 1980, Bruce Pavitt began a zine called “Subterranean Pop” - focusing on a localized approach to music and art. By the mid-80s, Sub Pop was a record label. By 1988, the label signed an unknown local band named Nirvana. While the rest is history - Sub Pop USA is an important document of music and a pathway of how they got from a 500 copy print run of their first zine to one of the largest independent and most influential record labels still operating. So if Dave Grohl's Sonic Highways series on HBO ignited something in you, this will keep that fire burning.


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.

Librairie Drawn & Quarterly Books of the Week - December 11, 2014

In the weekly Librairie Drawn & Quarterly Books of the Week, the Montreal bookstore recommends several new works of fiction, art books, periodicals, and comics.

Librairie Drawn & Quarterly is one of Montreal's premiere independent bookstores.


Pippi Won't Grow Up

Pippi Won't Grow Up
by Astrid Lindgren

Everybody's favourite red-pigtailed, seafaring heroine is back in this third volume of comics, with shenanigans a-plenty! In keeping with her reputation as the strongest girl in the world, when she visits the tropical island where her father resides, she tangles with (and makes short work of) several fearesome beasts! When her friend Tommy is about to be eaten by a shark, she saves him by jumping into the sea and hoisting the hungry shark overhead. Being the kind-hearted soul that she is, she cries after the rescue, thinking of how the baby shark will get no breakfast that day. In another strip, Pippi uses her characteristic smarts to outwit a quiz-happy teacher bent on making kids stand in the corner when they answer incorrectly. In all of her many adventures, Pippi's compassion, cleverness and bravery shine through. Truly a delightful collection for kids, which adults will also adore.


New Comics #5

New Comics #5
by Patrick Kyle

Toronto-based cartoonist and illustrator Patrick Kyle is makes refreshingly strange comics, the latest of which are presented in New Comics #5. Kyle recently published the epic and excellent Distance Mover with Koyama Press. New Comics #5 introduces us to a lonely pumpkin, a magnificent suit, and a fungus-powered humanoid robot who "can make anything out of anything." Weird and compelling!


Becoming Richard Pryor

Becoming Richard Pryor
by Scott Saul

This new biography of American comic genius Richard Pryor promises a more intimate portrait of the man than we've yet seen, thanks to Scott Saul's extensive interviews with people who knew him. Saul traces Pryor's trajectory from his difficult childhood, through his early Bill-Cosby-esque stand-up, through stints in Greenwich Village and Berkeley, to the key point at which he emerges from Cosby's shadow to become the challenging and dangerous performer we remember.


Little Nemo: Dream Another Dream

Little Nemo: Dream Another Dream

This tribute anthology to Winsor McCay's hallowed creation comes to you in a gloriously large 16 by 21" tome! Locust Moon Press successfully used Kickstarter to bring together an impressive array of comic artists, all of whom contribute their own visions of Little Nemo's world. Each artists adds a new dream to Little Nemo's slumberscape, begun by McCay in 1905. Expect creative uses of space, and even some unexpected media like cut-outs, dolls, and sculpture!


Vapor

Vapor
by Max

Vapor is the latest English translation from award-winning Spanish cartoonist Max. Follow bird-faced man Nicodemos as his quest for the meaning of life causes him to flee the modern world, and brings him to a mysterious desert. Here, he encounters various helpful creatures, as well as a mysterious entity called Vapor, whose purpose remains an enigma. The relatively simple, stark black and white drawings belie a complex story dealing with existential and philosophical questions. Keep your eyes peeled for symbolism, as this book is brimming with it.
