Happy July, Gatherers and Grand Geeks! The temperature rises as I write this despite whatever overcast consumes the horizon. Soon that sun will just burn it away entirely and the blazing summer season consumes all of us. But seriously, as we near the celebration of our birth as a nation I’d like to say how much I love this time of year, especially for the chance to relax and cool down while enjoying some wonderful indie books. So let’s see what I will suggest for you this week!
Belle vs. Black Knight #1 (one-shot)
Writer(s): Dave Franchini
Artist(s): Martin Coccolo
Cover Artist(s): Martin Coccolo, Igor Vitorino, Michael Dooney, Ron Leary Jr.
Publisher: Zenescope Entertainment Inc.
Synopsis: “Legendary beast hunter, Anabelle “Belle” DiMarco, and defense attorney, Peyton ” The Black Knight” Parks, are two driving forces for good in the Grimm Universe, but they are about to meet for the first time and it’s going to be anything but friendly. Can both of these warriors survive this chaotic meeting? Don’t miss this epic story where hunter meets knight and all hell breaks loose.”
When worlds collide within the Grimm universe of Zenescope, you know it’s going to turn into a full on slobberknocker. So is the case between Anabelle “Belle” DiMarco and Peyton “Black Knight” Parks. Sure, they are both a paragon of virtue and fight the good fight for justice but, is the world big enough for the two of them when their paths cross? Two different personalities colliding after all. Honestly, at this point its hard to say who’d win the fight. What say you?!
Devil’s Highway #1 (of 5)
Writer(s): Ben Percy
Artist(s): Brent Schoonover
Cover Artist(s): Brent Schoonover
Publisher: AWA-Upshot Studios
Synopsis: “Ben Percy (Wolverine) and Brent Schoonover (Batman ’66) present a nerve-racking thriller examining murder in the dark underbelly of America’s heartland. A young woman with a dark family secret embarks on a quest to hunt down the serial killer that brutally murdered her father – only to discover he is just one piece of a national network of evil that snakes across the country and hides in plain sight. To catch the devil she must first embrace the darkness within.”
This particular tale takes a very dark turn almost from the get go. Apparently a young lady from America’s heartland wants to seek vengeance on a serial killer that murdered her family. Let’s just ignore the fact that she hails from a family with a dark past itself but, how about we combine the fact that evil hardly begins or ends with her father’s killer? Read on!
And there we have it for the week, folks! Superheroes colliding in the Grimm Universe combined with tales of vengeance compounded by darkness. These stories and more await you at the mere click of a button on your keyboard or at the touch of a screen on your tablets and/or phones.
