Indie Spotlight Series 52

 

Hello everyone, and welcome back to another edition of Indie Spotlight Series. Another strong week on the Independent front, so without hesitation let’s jump right in.

 

Heartbeat 1

Boom! Studios

Well it seems as if Boom! Studios has another hit on their hands with the release of Heartbeat 1 this week. The story centers around a high school outcast who finds out a gruesome secret about one of the most popular kids in school. Morals go out the window when he turns the tables though and offers her the escape she has been craving. Sales are strong on this book, and as of now the one per store looks like the one to have as its going for $65.00 plus. The cover being done by Mirka Andolfo and a smaller print run is a win win.

Glow Vs. The Babyface 1

IDW

I admittedly know little to nothing about this series, other than the fact that it has a Netflix show on the horizon. However Netflix has nothing to do with why this one is on my radar. For me it's all about the Catherine Nodet 1:10 incentive. She has a huge following that seems to be rabid for her work. Sales are in the $20 to $30 range with not a ton of them out there.

Marked 1 Second Print

With this title supposedly optioned, Marked 1 second print may be a book to watch. If we learned anything from Monstress, this is a book that should not be slept on. New cover art and a small print run are two of the key ingredients to second print success, and for $3.99 I will take my chances on this one if I can find it tomorrow. Sales are steady, and very few listed.

 

Machine Girl 1

Red 5 Comics

Premise is out there on this one, but I will be giving issue 1 a shot. The story centers around a young human girl who is battling her way up in gladiator esq. style on a Multicultural planet.  Earth is just a long forgotten place, but one that Machine girl is obsessed with. Could be a cool ride, and if so I will be on board for issue 2. Keep in mind there is also a SDCC flip book Ashcan for this one. I will be looking to pick up the A cover tomorrow.

 

 

B.A.D.A.S.S. 1

Antarctic Press

In a day and time where area 51 and all things Alien related are the rage this may be a book to watch. The Acronym stands for Bureau of Alien Detection and Supernatural Sightings and definitely has that new age Men In Black feel to it. Be careful though,  as there are print on demand versions of this book out there.

 

 

 

Sleeper Pick

 

 

Hazel and Cha Cha Save Christmas

Dark Horse

Two fan favorites from the Umbrella Academy that are sure to see their own spin off someday. Love the cover on this one and will definitely be trying to pick it up tomorrow. There is also a North Carolina Comic con Variant that is Limited to 500 copies.
