Hot tidings of summertime to all you wonderful Grand Geeks and Gatherers of the cosmos! Time draws closer to my vacation and this year once again I’m going down to San Diego for Comic Con.  But until that time comes, I’m still wallowing away under this balmy sun ready and willing to find all those excellent choices for you guys and gals to read in the indie comics realm.  Let’s see what’s out there for you!


Strangelands #1
Writer(s): Magdalene Visaggio, Darcie Little Badger
Artist(s): Vanesa R. Del Rey
Cover Artist(s): Mike McKone,
Publisher: Humanoids Inc.

Synopsis: “The Humanoids H1 Universe brings you another smash series! Adam Land, an indigenous American, and Elakshi Land, a British-Asian, have what some might call “a love-hate relationship.” They’d probably be better off without one another, except for the fact that they have superpowers that cause mass destruction whenever they are separated. Now, their greatest challenge is to stay together-even if it tears the world apart.”

PREVIEWSworld

Sometimes it’s better to stay together, even when two opposing parties typically hate each other’s guts.  Said nobody ever?  Think again. It seems Adam and Elakshi have that issue in this new ongoing, living in a world where separation actually may cause worldwide catastrophe.  My only question is, just what kind of superpowers do the two of them possess that require them to stay by each other’s side anyway?  I’ve heard of the opposite being the case but never this!

Available in digital format from https://www.humanoids.com/ and https://www.comixology.com/.  Hard copy format available at your LCS!

PREVIEWSworld

Anyone who knows me also knows I am a big time lover of cuisine, and this book gives you just that in a visual smorgasbord of delightful dainties to be eaten.  I just recommend that you’ve proximity to a snack if you read it, otherwise you might be regretful!

There we have it for the week, fellow Gatherers and Grand Geeks! Tales of food combined with superpowers gone awry due to separation anxiety.  These gems and many more await you at the mere click of a button on your electronic devices or on the screen of your phone or tablet.  But being the supporters of local businesses you are, I trust you’ll head down to your local stores this Wednesday and pick up the hard copy issues themselves.
