Howdy Gatherers and Grand Geeks! I hope everyone’s week is going well. It seems some mild temps have returned to the realm, giving me some chances to enjoy a good book outside for a change! You’ll certainly have no complaints from me being able to enjoy my fandoms under a warm sun! In fact, I think its long overdue for me to do just that. But before I do so, let’s see what looks good this week in the indie comics world!
