Indie Spotlight Series 15
Hello again everyone and welcome back to another edition of ISS. All in all this is not an overwhelming week by any means for Independent Comics. However there is always a hidden gem or two out there waiting to be found, and I hope this helps point you in the right direction to do so.
WYRD 1 comes to us this week from Dark Horse Comics and looks to be a good read from the previews I have seen. The book is about a special Investigator that the U.S. Government hires when they have messes that they can't clean up, or deal with themselves. The Protagonists first case is tracking down a super soldier experiment gone bad……. Seems interesting and the art looks good , so I will definitely be giving this one a shot on Wednesday.
I can honestly say I have been waiting on this one for a while! This new one shot from Boom Studios takes a behinds the scenes look at professional wrestling in its prime when the series was called WWF!!! I like this idea and hope that it sparks more issues following the same path. In my opinion when wrestling was under the WWF logo it was in a class by itself and I hope this book brings back some of those nostalgic memories for everyone. The Main Cover for this book is perfect in every way and is my pick of the week.
Absolutely love the cover on Edgar Allan Poe's Snifter of Terror 4 from Ahoy Comics as it is a homage to Jaws. Shark covers sell and I don't think this one will be any different, even though it is not technically a shark haha. Aside from the cover I do have to say that I’m enjoying the outlandish and far out stories from this series as well. Only one listed on Ebay as I write this , and its for $19.99….
I admittedly know NOTHING about this book , but it has been rumored to be an unauthorized tie in to Watchmen and Doomsday clock which definitely has put it on some collectors radar. If this is true it could get warm on the secondary market. If i see a copy at cover I will be picking it up and hoping for the best.
Over the last couple weeks Alterna has looked like D.C. and Marvel with the sheer amount of titles they are kicking out! Well not really , but not bad for an Indie Publisher haha. This week we get the release of Unit 44 and its unique premise. Two Incompetent guards of Area 51 forget to pay the rent on an off base storage unit that gets auctioned off to the public. What's inside is apparently something that could end the world as we know it. Tons of other titles releasing this week from Alterna as well, so make sure and check them out too.
