Howdy Gatherers and Grand Geeks! I’m currently frozen in place and am sequestered to this cold chair on account of the dropping temperatures and pelting rain. So I guess there’s really no nonsense to speak of and thus I will get onto enumerating what looks good this week in the indie reading world! But on one quick note: Source Point Press is KILLING it this week!

Heeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeere’s kiddies! Seriously though, this is a world that’s overrun with, well, damned cursed children.

The Eighth Immortal #1 (of 4)
Writer(s): Jake Murray
Artist(s): Alice Li Barnes
Cover Artist(s): Tiffany Turrill, Gracie Bifulco
Publisher: Source Point Press

Synopsis: “Curipan has spent her immortality protecting humanity from the threat of an ancient prophecy. But time and a secret trauma have worn her down, forcing her to choose between her duty and her sanity.¬†The Eighth Immortal is a scandalous fantasy that asks the question, should anything last forever?

PREVIEWSworld

Well, should they? Honestly should anything last forever? This first issue of a four-issue series in a roundabout way seeks to answer that rhetorical question as it centers on the tale of a female immortal who has devoted her time to the protection of humanity from evil prophecies. Only problem is she’s gotten sick and tired of it over time, with her sanity hanging on by a thread.

And there we have it for the week, folks! Source Point is on fire this week with four new issues as parts of miniseries. Stories of anthropomorphic space warriors, burned out immortals, PTSD-stricken kids turned adults, and people banding together to survive in midst of a child-infested apocalypse! These tales and so many more are available at the mere click of a button on your keyboards or at the touch of a screen on your tablets and/or phones. But knowing that you are the conscious supporters of local businesses that I trust you are, I know you’ll head over to your local comic shops this Wednesday to pick up the hardcopy issues themselves – many of which I might add offer curbside assistance! Read them and share with your friends. Start a conversation and be sure to leave a comment or two. But most importantly, remember…GGG!
