Hello to all you adoring Grand Geeks and Gatherers out there! I hope all is well with you and that you continue to be the fans you are, delving into your fandoms at will in however way you see fit. For me, I bundle up again in this cold weather and intend to enjoy some indie comics with a hot cup of coffee by my side. But hey, enough about me. Onto the Picks!
Betty and Veronica, Friends Forever: Spring Break #1
Cover Artist(s): Dan Parent
Publisher: Archie Comics
Synopsis: “Spring is in the air, flowers are in bloom, and the days are getting longer-which means there’s even more time to have some fun with Betty and Veronica! Enjoy this collection of sweet spring stories featuring everyone’s favorite BFFs!”
I honestly never understood the whole rivalry, nor the need for people to identify as either “Team Betty” or “Team Veronica.” I have always enjoyed both characters for who they are. And as springtime nears, both get to be just who they are as their friendship continues on in this wonderful collection of springtime tales. Have come fun with this, indie readers!
Nottingham #1 (of 5)
Writer(s): David Hazan
Artist(s): Shane Connery Volk, Luca Romano
Cover Artist(s): Shane Connery Volk, Luca Romano
Publisher: Mad Cave Studios
Synopsis: “In this twisted medieval noir, the Sheriff of Nottingham hunts a serial killer with a penchant for tax collectors. The Sheriff’s investigation makes him the target of England’s most nefarious power-brokers. That’s to say nothing of the Merry Men, terrorists lurking amongst the trees of Sherwood, led by an enigma known only as “Hood.”
This is definitely a twisted tale that is the first issue of a five issue miniseries. It seems Robin Hood and the Merry Men are evil entities preying upon innocent tax collectors and that the Sheriff of Nottingham is the honest investigator wishing to restore order. Curious story indeed!
And there we have it for the week, folks! More tales of everyone’s favorite BFF’s from Riverdale combined with a classic medieval England tale turned on its head. These gems and more await you at the mere click of a button on your keyboards or at the touch of a screen on your tablets and/or phones. But being the supporters of local business that I trust you are, I know you’ll head down to your comic shops this Wednesday to pick up the hardcopy issues 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!
