Howdy Gatherers and Grand Geeks! For a change, it’s actually starting to cool down a spell here in my realm, so all is well! The weather feels pleasant and all-around I can sense Fall is really making it’s impact upon the California Southland area. Bring on the pumpkin spice and all that nice stuff! Before I indulge, however, let’s see what looks good this week in the indie reading world!

Butcher Queen: Planet of the Dead #1
Writer(s): Jim Ousley
Artist(s): Ben Sawyer
Cover Artist(s): Ben Sawyer, Tim Bradstreet
Publisher: Red 5 Comics
Synopsis: “When a young boy discovers a never-before-seen lifeform, Syd Kiowa and her team of misfits must unravel its connection to a series of global attacks from another dimension.”
It seems that a new form of life has been discovered, and definitely not one that is native to this world or even this plane of existence. Thus, Syd Kiowa and her band of undesirables are on the job to figure out just what this thing is and where it comes from. Apparently it could have some link to some strange attacks coming from another realm and thus, its up to these misfits to find the connection.
And that’s it for the week, folks! Tales of kickass women becoming latter day royals while combined with strange occurrences of interdimensional proportions. 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 please, be sure to show your support for local business and head down to your comic shops this Wednesday to get the hard copy issues themselves as many LCS are having curb-side pickup. Read them and share with your friends and tweet out at the creators. Start a conversation and be sure to leave a comment or two. But most importantly, remember…GGG!
