Hello all you adoring Grand Geeks and Gatherers out there. I hope everyone’s fandom life continues on. Even mine marches forth day to day, though with this sudden windy cold spike come to the Southern California realm I must say I’m back to seeking comfort by my bedside heater and finding a hot cup of cocoa to keep me warm. And in due time I shall read a good book or two with said cup. But before I do so, let’s see what looks good this week in the indie comics world!

And there we have it for the week, Gatherers and Grand Geeks. More of Rick Sanchez’s shenanigans combined with the delightfully macabre miniseries design of Ed Piskor! These titles and so many more 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 since so many of you support local business, I will encourage you to head down to your local comic shop this Wednesday 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!
