Howdy all you wonderful Grand Geeks and Gatherers! As we draw closer and closer to the yuletide celebration I find that the weather is getting that much more colder. Nowadays I find myself indulging in my fandoms wrapped in several layers with a hot cup of coffee or cocoa at my side! And in a bit I plan on doing more of said activity. But before I do so, how about some much needed selections to satisfy your indie reading needs, hmm?!

Take a time machine to thirty years in the past. That’s right, baby! ’89! Alas, in a day and age in which roller derby was at an all time high of popularity, it seems the Bowl-O-Rama is in a tight fix and has been shut down.

Publisher: Silver Sprocket
Synopsis: “Fed up with wealthy techies blip-blipping on their wangdangs and destroying the formerly gritty culture of Fog City, a punk lady moves out to the sticks to soothe her soul. Though she is only looking to escape, a mysterious and hairy stranger disrupts her plans and causes her life to change in unexpected ways.”
Seems life in Fog City isn’t what it used to be to a punk lady. She decides then out of the blue to just leave and head for nature. But what she finds there may be more than she bargained for!
And there we have it for the week, Gatherers and Grand Geeks! Roller derby twosomes unwittingly unleashing the forces of Hell combined with a punk lady wanting to get away from the staleness of life in the big city. These picks and others 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 I’m sure you will go that extra mile and head down to your local comic store this Wednesday and show your support for them by buying the hard copies 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!
