Howdy Gatherers and Grand Geeks! I hope everyone is well. As for your favorite indie comics blogger I wish I could say the same. A little under the weather this week, but fear not its just a simple headcold. Its more of a nuissance than anything though. So I’ll just content myself with some hot tea and lemon, drinking lots of fluids, and reading plenty of good things to make the time pass by. But before I continue, let’s see what looks good this week in the indie comic reading world!
Dead Legends II: Premier Edition #1
Writer(s): James Maddox
Artist(s): Gavin Smith
Cover Artist(s): Gavin Smith
Publisher: A Wave Blue World Inc.
Synopsis: “After winning the last Dead Legends tournament and taking revenge on her husband’s killer, Yan is on the run with a new daughter in tow. Luckily, she has friends like Red Death, Jee Sin and Stalk to look after her and the child. But Tigress and her hordes of assassins are closing in! This leads into the Dead Legends II graphic novel to be offered in August’s PREVIEWS catalog.”
It seems we return to Yan’s shenanigans in a new installment of this saga that leads in to a new graphic novel! With a new baby on the way and targets writ all over her, Yan is on the run from Tigress and her assassins. Luckily she has help along the way though!
Campisi: The Dragon Incident #1
Writer(s): James Patrick
Artist(s): Marco Locati
Cover Artist(s): Fran Galan
Publisher: Aftershock Comics
Synopsis: “Sonny Campisi is a small-time fixer for the mob-controlled neighborhood of Green Village. If you don’t pay your gambling debt, he’ll come and collect. If you get a little rough with one of “the girls,” he gets a little rough with you. But when a dragon flies into town and Sonny is the one who’s tasked with getting rid of it, it’s a problem unlike any he’s ever faced…”
This honestly spells the sumtotal of two of my most favorite things, fantasy and mobsters. It seems Sonny Campisi tends to be the big enforcer in Green Village. But what happens when a dragon comes to the Village and he must dispose of it? What happens when the muscle is outmuscled? Find out, friends, capisce?!
And there we have it for the week, folks! Tales of martial arts champions on the run from assassins guilds and mob enforcers tasked with dispatching of dragons. These precious gems and others 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 hey, its always good to support local business, right? So had down to your local comic store this Wednesday and get 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!
