Hello Gatherers and Grand Geeks! I hope everyone is well enjoying their myriad of fandoms. As for me, its D&D weekend again and the gamemaster in me beckons the call. Many adventures to be had in the realm of tabletop. But before I do so, let us see what looks good this week in the indie comics world!
Emo Girl #1
Writer(s): Julian Lawler
Artist(s): Martin Montiel
Cover Artist(s): Martin Montiel
Publisher: Blacktooth Comics
Synopsis: “Emo Girl is a Noir-ish tale with an angry, moody, bipolar, with a take no prisoners attitude, troubled teenager at the center of its universe. Emo Girl, aka Jemini Moon, is in state custody…”
It would seem that Buffy Summers is getting some competition in the vampire hunting world nowadays! Jemini Moon hunts them but currently on her own due to her father having the misfortune of being behind bars. Not that it stops Emo Girl, of course! As long as she can balance school life and all, Moon should be able to handle it just fine. Right?!
Available in hardcopy format at your LCS!
Belle: Queen of Serpents #1
Writer(s): Dave Franchini
Cover Artist(s): Igor Vitorino, Vinz El Tabanas, Elias Chatzoudis
Publisher: Zenescope Entertainment
Synopsis: “32 Merciless Pages of Content! After Belle’s recent revelation that one of her friends has been transformed into the Queen of Serpents, she must risk it all to restore her humanity–but is it already too late?”
It seems Belle just can’t get a break nowadays! With a friend of hers having been transformed into the Queen of Serpents, our favorite heroine must find it in herself to put all on the line in order to save her. One has to wonder though how much she’d be willing to risk to do this. And on top of that, is it probably already past the point of rescue for her dear friend?!

Strong female characters represent the indie world this week, with tales of adolescent vampire hunters combined with warrior princesses on the move for justice. These tales are just a peak at what is available at the mere click of a button on your keyboards or at the touch of a screen on your phones and/or tablets. But since I know many of you prefer supporting local businesses, I will encourage you to find these gems at your comic shop this Wednesday! Read on and share with your friends. Start a conversation and be sure to leave a comment or two. But most importantly, remember…GGG!
