Howdy indie readers galore! I hope everyone is dealing with the summer heat in the best way possible. I myself am having difficulty trying to even type this up as I am just a puddle on the floor currently. Yeah, its THAT hot if you must know! I must find some way to cool down and fast. But before I do so, let’s see what looks good this week!

Synopsis: “The Spider Queen, Lord of Flies, King of Serpents and the Scorpion Queen have all tested their mettle against earths greatest heroes and come up short. Now with their powers combined to form the SWARM they are ready to take their revenge and destroy anyone who stands in their way.”
So it seems that some of the most vile of Earth’s villains have adopted the tactical philosophy of the Spartans, to alley their strength into a cohesive unit. Thus the inception of SWARM has come and they are determined to take down all who stand in their way. Only problem is, how will they fare against those accurate bodkin bolts of our favorite masked heroine?!
And there we have it for the week, my wonderful Grand Geeks and Gatherers! Villains allied against our favorite masked heroines combined with a world swarming with new telepathic powers. These stories and others are available 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 I know you all prefer supporting local businesses, I will encourage you to head down to your local comic shop 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!
