Well met, my dear Grand Geeks and Gatherers! We are on the road to a double-headed holiday with the Superbowl and Valentine’s celebrations back to back. I certainly hope your favorite team takes the top honors and that love is in the air for you as well. As for me, I’ll continue indulging my favorite fandoms and enjoying some reading. But before I do so, lets see what looks good in the indie comics world!
Destiny, NY: Valentine’s Day Special #1 (one-shot)
Writer(s): Pat Shand
Artist(s): Chiara Colasanti, Rosi Kampe, Rachel Dukes
Cover Artist(s): Chiara Colasanti, Rosi Kampe, Rachel Dukes
Publisher: Black Mask Studios Entertainment
Synopsis: “In the first special Destiny, NY one-shot, writer Pat Shand (Snap Flash Hustle, Thirsty) tells three stories of love, yearning, and romance set in a world where magic is a real and accepted part of everyday life. In these slice-of-life stories, a cat escapes, a Necromancer is scorned, and vows are renewed. If you haven’t jumped on board the ongoing Destiny, NY title, this one-shot is the perfect jumping on point.”
A perfect jumping on point for those not familiar with the Destiny, NY ongoing. Three wonderful romantic slice of life tales to warm your hearts this Valentine’s!
From Blood #1 (of 3)
Writer(s): James Whynot, Zach Bassett
Artist(s): James Whynot, Zach Bassett
Cover Artist(s): James Whynot, Zach Bassett
Publisher: Cosmic Times
Synopsis: “The story of a super powered mental patient. From Blood is an action packed tale that follows the mysterious Patient 27 as he discovers the truth about who or what he is. For years he has kept silent, a hulking indestructible mountain of a man, but after a visit from Doctor Reese the door has been opened and all hell breaks loose.”
Just what do you get when you mix super powers with an inmate of a disturbed ward? Why, you get Patient 27 of course! For quite a while he has laid dormant, but, when Doctor Reese comes calling one day, the straw comes broken!
And there we have it for the week, Grand Geeks and Gatherers! Mental patients gaining superpowered abilities combined with romantic slice of life stories all in time for Valentine’s Day! Tales like these and more await you 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 love supporting local business, I will encourage you to head down to your local comic store this Wednesday in order to pick up the hardcopy 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!
