Located off The Avenue in Hampden, Atomic Books has everything for the word nerd or comic geek hidden deep down inside. Filled with comics, 'zines, imported magazines, toys, notebooks, even vinyl, and a surprisingly large food writing section, this shop is the perfect place to get lost for hours. When you're in the mood for something new to read, but not quite sure what, five minutes in Atomic Books will leave you with a armful of required reading you never knew existed. Or, if you need to write John Waters a fan letter, they'll gladly pass it along, since he drops by on a regular basis to pick up such mail.
