Howdy, Gatherers and Grand Geeks! It seems to be a bit of a “cool off” day here for the California southland and for that I am glad. A week on vacation certainly has been a bit of a scorcher! This week the Gathering will be down in San Diego for Comic Con International. I myself am unable to make it so I will just enjoy it from the sidelines. But for all of those that will attend I hope you have the best time and to enjoy it as well as your fandoms to the fullest. I shall do so as well, but first, let’s see what looks good this week in the indie comics world!
Haunted, Beloved #1 (one-shot)
Writer(s): Natasha Alterici
Artist(s): Natasha Alterici
Cover Artist(s): Natasha Alterici
Publisher: Literati Press
Synopsis: ” Til death do us part…? Following a fatal accident, a newly incorporeal lover makes an earnest attempt to reconnect with their widow. But will their paranormal meddling be for better or for worse?”
Sometimes death cannot even separate ones that were unified in matrimony. In this particular tale, a mortal accident brings an untimely demise to one half of a loving relationship. The newly made spirit, however, doesn’t necessarily want to call it quits with their mortal lover. Hence why they are going to try and reconnect with them. But could this be a good or bad thing? Who knows!

Synopsis: “A terrible beast has haunted the citizens of Poletown for decades. Although the monster hasn’t been seen in years, disappearances and gruesome killings still plague the townsfolk. Determined to clear her family name, Red hunts The Great Wolf in hopes of exonerating her grandmother, who lives in exile for spreading terrifying propaganda.”
Poletown has a problem of a monstrosity that hasn’t been seen for decades. But its terror is still felt about the premises. Red seeks to take down this canine terror, not really for glory but in the hopes of clearing his grandmother’s name.
