Hiya Gatherers and Grand Geeks! Hopefully all is going well for you whether you’re indulging in your fandoms or getting much needed rest. I am doing both today while counting down the days to when we finally get Spring, because frankly I am quite exhausted of the cold weather. So let’s sit back, find something warm to drink, and see what there is to read in the indie comics world this week, shall we?!


The Argus #1
Writer(s): Mark Bertolini
Artist(s): Darryl Knickrehm
Cover Artist(s): Darryl Knickrehm
Publisher: Action Lab Comics – Danger Zone

Synopsis: “Time travel is real! Scientific prodigy Randall Patton has had a breakthrough that allows travel through the timestream, which immediately led to the creation of The Argus, the temporal law enforcement organization that polices the time/space continuum. After an accident renders one of the members of The Argus insane, he begins killing off the others – except they are all versions of Randall Patton from various points in his own life! Who can stop Randall but himself?

PREVIEWSworld

This truly is one of those wibbley-wobbley and timey-wimey sort of books that has you scratching your head at times but seems to bring time travel into a new perspective. Since one member of the temporal police force known as Argus has gone insane and killing off versions of Randall Patton in various points of his life, who better to call than Randall Patton?!

Twin Worlds #1
Writer(s): Rami Al-ashqar
Artist(s): Jethro Morales
Cover Artist(s): Jethro Morales
Publisher: Action Lab Comics – Danger Zone

Synopsis: “Years ago, humanity became the “alien invaders” when the sky was lit up by a portal to the world of Tassaroth. Finding a medieval society with rich resources, the “Earthers” soon took advantage and occupied the planet. Today Vin Raja, the chieftain of the Drakkaran nation, leads an armed assault upon an Earther outpost. He will show no mercy to other natives who have sided with the Earthers. Vin Raja is a great warrior but has a dark secret; a secret that threatens to be exposed when his daughter breaks her house arrest with her mysterious twin children.”

PREVIEWSworld

For a change, it seems humans are the evil invaders in this new ongoing. Managing to portal to an alien world known as Tassaroth, humanity subjected the foreign world to its subjugation, and its up to native Drakkaran chieftain Vin Raja to defend it against this encroachment. Problem is, he has a dark secret his daughter could inexplicably reveal. Curious really!
