Indie Spotlight Series 31


Hello everyone and welcome back to another edition of Indie Spotlight Series. Once again we have a smaller week quantity size but quality is a different story. I’m looking forward to a lot of things this week, so let's jump right in.


Road of Bones 1


Road of Bones 1 comes to us this week from IDW and it's one of those books that screams at me for a couple reasons.  First off we have to take notice of what IDW is doing with these creator owned properties. They seem to be moving more in that direction and the quality of the stories has been fantastic with books like Ghost Tree and Amber Blake.  Next thing that has this book on my radar is the premise… Russian Folklore horror story uh I'm in!  This one will follow a couple of prison escapees who find out that the life behind bars is the same as the journey to freedom.  Love the cover on this book as well.


Drawing Blood Spilled Ink 1

Kevin Eastman Studios

Drawing Blood Spilled Ink is a title that will appeal to a variety of collectors and I myself can't wait to pick this up as an Eastman Fan.  The book is a four issue mini series that follows a comic writers fall from grace.  Shane “Books” Bookman is the creator of Radically Ronin Ragdolls, a title that got super hot when it was released and then faded away.  We will see highs and lows in this book and I feel certain Eastman will have the perspective from which this book is told spot on!!!  Selling well on the secondary market already.


Radically Ronin Ragdolls One Shot

Kevin Eastman Studios

Ok, this is part of a perfect double play by Kevin Eastman… Radically Ronin Ragdolls is a story within a story that goes hand in hand with the other Eastman title releasing this week called Drawing Blood Spilled Ink.  Love the idea behind these two books being intertwined and think this concept will do well.  Can't wait to see how the whole thing is executed.


These Savage Shores 1 (Fourth Print), 2 (Third Print), 3 (Second Print)


Since we just mentioned the Double Play we will stick with that concept and this will be my triple play of the week. Vault is releasing all new printings to issues 1 – 3 of These Savage Shores  and having the same style covers for each book.  As a collector the first thing I said was” I have to have all three of these” and I’m probably not alone in that mindset.  That being said, if you can find sets of these I think they will do well on the secondary market. Can't say enough about the quality of content on this title. Hats off to Ram V!


Faithless 2

Boom Studios

The highly anticipated Faithless 2 comes out this week from Boom! Studios. The first issue saw rave reviews, sold out and has gone to a second print.  Issue 2 will see another Erotic variant and this time it's done by the very talented Vanessa Del Rey.  Don't think this one will be as explicit as the first but with Boom! Studios you never know.  I expect it to sell well and be highly sought after by Del Rey’s fanbase!  Lots of sales on the secondary market already.


Knights of The Golden Sun 7

Mad Cave Studios

What can I say about this series other than epic!!!!!  Issue 7 is the thrilling conclusion to the first arc and after the way issue 6 ended this is the most anticipated one for me!  We saw the introduction of a new character in the last issue and I can't wait to see how it all plays out in this one.  HIGHLY recommended read! Copies are already going for above cover price on the secondary market.


Sleeper Pick



Faithless 1 Second Print Erotica Cover

I spoke about this with issue 2 earlier but this second print variant may be one to keep your eye on. No image has been released and it will definitely be another erotic cover with different art!  I think this one will be massively underordered as it flew under a lot of shop owners radars.  Keep your eye out for this one for sure.

Last Week’s Updates


Last Stop On Redline 1

Dark Horse Comics

I enjoyed the story enough to pick up issue 2. Books are going for $10 to $12 on the secondary market as of now, with a few copies listed for $7.99. No doubt that the Netflix deal is helping drive sales on this book.


All Time Comics Zerosis Deathscape

Not doing much on the secondary market and I have not had the chance to read the book myself.  Less than 10 copies listed on eBay though is something to keep in mind.


Aberrant Season 2 #2

Action Lab Danger Zone

All cheap copies have dried up on eBay with very few listed.


Alexandria Ocasio Cortez and Freshman Force Who Dis One Shot

Devil's Due Comics

Cheap copies of this one have dried up as well and you will have to pay $8 for the main cover. There is a retailer incentive for this book that is going for over $300 though because of a Cease and Desist letter from D.C. comics……….Hmmmmmmmmmmmm.  Something to keep an eye on for sure.


The Devils 2

Antarctic Press

Cheap copies still available everywhere. The delay from issue 1 to 2 killed this book.


Thanks again to everyone who reads and good luck out there tomorrow.
