Atomic Books Comics Preview - June 1st, 2011

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 was recently 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.

Baltimore Time Travel Anthology
by Melody Often (editor)

This anthology features a collection time-travel related stories by a bunch of Baltimore cartoonists. Including Eamon Espey, Dina Kelberman, Ben Claassen III, Monica Gallagher, Chelsea Carr, Emilja Frances, Mike Bracco and more.

Citizen Rex
by Mario Hernandez / Gilbert Hernandez

When a gossip blogger starts looking into a celebrity robot, a sci-fi adventure ensues as only Los Bros Hernandez can deliver.

Life With Mr. Dangerous
by Paul Hornschemeier

Amy struggles for an adult identity while finding addictive catharsis in the cartoon Mr. Dangerous. Her romantic interest is on the other side of the country, her life is lived in the shadow of her mother and her career is of the retail sales clerk variety. How does one get a life?

Lose #3
by Michael Deforge

There are so few alternative/indie/underground comix being produced anymore, it's always a treat when one comes out. And it's an extra treat when the comic is as good as Michael Deforge's Lose series. Weird, funny, expertly crafted.

The Tooth
by Cullen Bunn / Shawn Lee / Matt Kindt

The Tooth is a horrific hero who has offbeat adventures and fights ghouls and demons. If you like quirky and weird, you'll want to pull yourself a copy of The Tooth. Get it? Pull? Tooth?
