Howdy to all Grand Geeks and Gatherers, one and all! I hope everything is well in your neck of the woods. With me its been a rough couple of weeks but I’m holding on there and see nothing but light at the end of the tunnel. Now if only this carryover warmth from summer will go away and it finally cools down permanently here will things be perfect. Alas, this isn’t my soapbox to complain. Let’s see what looks good in the indie reading world this week!

Returning from one of her own adventures, Muertana gets her own horror-filled title straight from Verotika Returns!

And there we have it for the week midway through October, folks! Telepathic criminals amidst dystopian concrete jungles combined with new adventures of a horror icon. These stories and so many others await you at the mere click of a button on your keyboards or at the touch of a screen on your tablets and/or phones. But being the supports of local business that I trust you are, I’m sure you’ll had down to your comic shops this Wednesday and pick out the hard copy issues themselves. Read them and share with your friends. Start a conversation and be sure to leave a comment or two. But most importantly, remember…GGG!
