Hello to all my adoring Grand Geeks and Gatherers out there! I hope everyone is well, enjoying your fandoms to your heart’s content. As for me, I will be enjoying some birthday celebrations this weekend as well as a few good tabletop sessions. But until I get into the thick of all that, let’s see what looks good this week in the indie comic world!

Artist(s): Juan Doe
Cover Artist(s): Juan Doe
Publisher: Aftershock Comics
Synopsis: “A Quartet of Quintessential Horror Tales from the multitalented Juan Doe – presented in a single prestige-format one-shot!

Sometimes good all-ages fun is what a comic reader needs, and in this particular series we see just that. Meeky and Stig are the best of friends and have their furry friends Slothie and Ferry along for the ride. And the imagination is boundless between the two of them to allow for some good-natured fun and adventure. Let this roller coaster of fun and play begin!

And there we have it for the week, folks! Good natured tales of youngsters with boundless imaginations combined with cosmic horror tales to chill your bones. A truly dichotomous arrangement of indie literature if there ever was one! These tales and so many 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 since many of you do enjoy supporting local businesses, I will implore you to head down to your comic shop this Wednesday to pick up the hard copy 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!
