Howdy to all you Gatherers and Grand Geeks of the realm! I hope everyone is doing well out there and holding their own. I certainly am. Its starting to get lighter earlier and hints of warmth are breaking through this cold. Still though, until then I will gladly curl up before my bedside heater and warm up while enjoying some great indie books. Let’s see what looks good this week!
Beware the Witch’s Shadow Winter Special #1
Writer(s): S. A. Check, James Kuhoric
Artist(s): Jean-Jacques Dzialowski, Puis Calzada
Cover Artist(s): Puis Calzada, Mike Wolfer
Publisher: American Mythology Productions

In this issue we discover that the undead are everywhere, even in the dark reaches of space. And a con man tries to work the system but finds out that one’s grip on sanity is indeed a slippery slope…”
A nice wintry special revolving around classic horrors to chill you to the bone! Whether its about the witch or undead across the world and space or even a con-man’s grip on reality being lost, this special issue has plenty to keep you entertained!
Chariot #1 (of 5)
Writer(s): Bryan Edward Hill
Artist(s): Priscilla Petraites
Cover Artist(s): Jeff Dekal, Mike Deodato
Publisher: AWA-Upshot Studios
Synopsis: “The Chariot was a Cold War-era secret government project to provide its star agent with a weapon unlike any other in the form of a supercharged muscle car. It sank into the ocean decades ago, and the agent along with it. Now, a petty criminal looking to reform his life has stumbled upon the Chariot, and he’s about to find out that the agent’s consciousness is still controlling it in this synthwave thriller.”
It’s like James Bond and Michael Knight have chosen to combine forces in this miniseries thriller! Chariot is a Cold War-age contraption that has been found by a petty criminal in today’s world, only to find that it’s definitely no piece of junk!
And there we have it for the week, folks! Tales of classic wintry horror combined with synthwave thrillers! These gems and others 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 since you are all very supportive of local businesses, I trust you’ll head down to your comic shops this Wednesday to pick up the hardcopy issue 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!
