Indie Spotlight Series 27

 

Hello everyone and welcome back to another edition of Indie Spotlight Series. Huge week for Indie comics with a slew of great titles releasing! That being said let's not waste any time and jump right in!

 

Amber Blake 2 (1:10 incentive)

IDW

I am really looking forward to issue 2 of Amber Blake from IDW publishing and apparently I’m not alone as this book seems to be gaining a bit of a fanbase.  Issue 1 was nothing short of spectacular, as the world building is fantastic and the art is on point, working magnificently with the story!  Pre Sales on this book are outstanding!!!!  Cover A is selling well with most items getting picked up within hours of being listed. The 1:10 variant is going WILD!!!!!  Once again Catherine Nodet has killed the cover art and and it’s showing on the secondary market!  This book has seen multiple sales above $150 and should be harder to find then the number 1 incentive variant. This is my Pick of the Week.

 

Weed Magic Volume 3

Bliss on Tap

Homage cover to Guns and Roses Appetite for Destruction album!?!?!?  Are you F****** Kidding me! Give me 10 please!!!  Couple that cover with the content of the book and this is one of those ones that screams at me.  I think this will be a cool piece to have in a slab and will appeal to many types of collectors as well. Print run will be tiny on this one I assume as well so I  wouldn't be surprised to see it heat up.

 

Achilles Inc. 1

Source Point Press

Story premise is what has this book on my radar.  People realizing they have superpowers only to use them to turn the world into a hopeless dark place.. Sounds epic to me!  However, all of these so called “Boosters” have a weakness that can be exploited and Achilles is the firm that is letting this info out while doing its best to right the world that has gone so terribly wrong. If your LCS misses this book it can also be found on the publishers website and is already available to order.

 

Electric Black 1

Scout Comics

The Electric Black is a new horror comic from Scout Comics that sounds like a great read and one that I will definitely be picking up as a long term hold on Wednesday.  Horror is HOT right now and Scout has a ton of ties to Hollywood so this is something I would keep in mind if you see this book at your shop tomorrow. The premise is the store has a mind of its own and uses beings to move throughout different dimensions. It gets what it wants out of the customer so to speak. Sounds interesting. Another thing to keep in mind is this is Scout Comics top selling Pre Order Book OF ALL TIME!  Don't sleep on this one. There is also a special web store variant available through the publishers website.

 

Spawn 296

Image Comics

Todd McFarlane keeps promising big things in the issues leading up to #300 and I think this is where you might want to get on the train. The start of a new storyline that will take you up to the big 300th issue is the billing for this one. I actually love the cover and will be picking up a few of these as another long term hold.  

 

Sleeper Pick

 

Queen of Bad Dreams 1

Vault Comics

Once again horror is hot right now and I will definitely be giving this book a shot come Wednesday. The concept sounds very interesting to say the least.  Imagine parts of your dreams coming to life. Well in this book it's a reality and it's up to one woman to determine if they stay part of this world or have to be relegated back to dreamland. I love the homage cover B for this one and that's the one I will be grabbing tomorrow.

Also, if homage variants are your thing, make sure and head over to the CBSI variant page and check out there amazing homage to Detective Comics for Queen of Bad Dreams 1 from Vault Vintage.
