Hello, Gatherers and Grand Geeks! It seems things have cooled down again in my neck of the woods. Spring has a strange way of being like that, alternating between warmth and cold. Not that it stops me from engaging in my fandoms, of course! And it should not for you as well! With Easter’s Day having come and gone, we now have much to look forward to as the seasons change. Con-season is in full swing! Free Comic Book Day is around the corner. And a good round of tabletop roleplaying games is to be had! I plan to enjoy all of them and then some. But before I get to planning, let’s see what looks good this week in the indie comics world!

And there we have it for the week, Grand Geeks and Gatherers! Compilations of Dredd’s world in the future combined with public domain deities involved in a maniacal multiverse. These gems and so many more await you at the mere click of a button on your keyboard or at the touch of a screen on your phones and/or tablets. But since many of you love supporting local businesses, I will encourage you to head down to your comic shops 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!
