A very Happy Easter to all you adoring Grand Geeks and Gatherers out there! I hope all is well with you and you are enjoying this pleasant day in the way you best see fit. I myself plan on simply relaxing and reading and…well not a whole lot else. But before I get to all that abject laziness, let’s see what looks good this week in the indie comics world!
Project: Patron #1
Writer(s): Steve Orlando
Artist(s): Patrick Piazzalunga
Cover Artist(s): David Talaski
Publisher: Aftershock Comics
Synopsis: “Thirty years ago, the world watched in horror as THE PATRON, a hero sent as humanitarian aid from a different dimension, went punch for punch with WOE, a primordial beast and a perfect match for our mighty protector. In the end, hero and villain alike fell…but the Patron returned – and continues to defend us to this day! At least, that’s what we’ve all been told…”
The world is led to believe that its great superhero savior died and was resurrected to protect it from evil. The only problem is, the current world’s Patron is actually a carbon copy of the original and led by an elite team to see that justice is done. Quite the interesting twist if you ask me!
Bloom #1 (of 4)
Writer(s): Ted Sikora
Artist(s): Butch K. Mapa
Cover Artist(s): Bong Dazo, Benito Gallego
Publisher: Hero Tomorrow Comics
Synopsis: “The year is 1969. Ramsey is an aspiring comic book artist who is trying to find inspiration for his femme fatale. When he meets wild dancer, Regina, at a street fair he invites her into the woods for a character photoshoot where she begins to “break on through to the OTHER side…”
Never thought I’d be so proud to see the lyrics of a Jim Morrison song entice readers to try a new comic miniseries! It seems Ramsey needs inspiration for finding a femme fatale for his burgeoning comic art career. Well, he finds one with the wild dancer, Regina, and his life is changed forever!
And there we have it for the week, indie reading folks! Tales of psychedelic wild dancers being inspirations for aspiring comic artists along with replicated superheroes to save the day. These gems 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 phones and/or tablets. But since you all are supporters of local business I trust you’ll 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!
