    Atomic carries lots of eclectic titles, but it also serves as the Post Office Box for John Waters fan mail. Write a fan letter across the street while you get a bite to eat at the Golden West Cafe!

    Awesome books plus comics (graphic novels) and more indie zines than you can shake a stick at. Then toys and a record store in the back too!
