Hello Gatherers and Grand Geeks! I hope everyone is making a smooth transition into the fall season and continuing to enjoy your myriad of fandoms. I certainly am and do so by a warm heater with a hot cup of coffee in hand. Of course, that reminds me, I do have some indie reading to do. But before I get to that, let’s se what looks good this week!

Synopsis: “Arriving at the start of a mysterious race three days late isn’t ideal, and discovering that the entire race is one long battle might be worse. Monolithic rock monsters, hoards of lizards, sharks and truck driving birds face off in the first issue of this humorous battle comic mini-series.”
Humorous comics have always been at the cornerstone of the indie comics industry. This issue provides that combined with a mysterious race in which our main protagonist is already three days late for! Suffice it to say here are plenty of frights along the way to avoid, whether lizards or sharks or truck driving birds! On your mark, monster-racers galore!

Synopsis: “British SIS agent Charlie Stratford is brought in to investigate one of the most vicious mass shootings in recent memory. After finding a link to a defunct cold war era cryptology op called “The Numbers Station,” he teams up with Sasha – an ambitious young GCHQ codebreaker – to shut down the numbers station before anyone else dies.”
When a long defunct Cold War era cryptologic initiative is beginning to create mass shootings, MI6 operative Stratford is sent in to investigate along with a youthful GCHQ codebreaker to see that the next slaughter is prevented. Only question one might have is, how much time do they have until the next killing?!
