This thread is dedicated to the Indie/Alternative/Independent comics that surround the comics industry. In the recent comicvine podcast it was stated that some people do not know of the wonders of Indie comics and hopefully this thread can aid in this. Just post about whatever your reading and lets spread the word around.
Lately I've been reading Jeff Lemire stuff. His $1 (wow) Sweet Tooth #1 was amazingly good and had plenty of room for exploration in the world he is crating. I recently read his graphic novel, The Nobody, which was kinda like a reimagining of the Invisible Man which was amazing to read. Finally, I bought the collected edition of Essex County and other tales from Top Shelf which involves ghost stories mixed with Lemire's childhood surroundings.
Also, I've been reading back issues of Devil's Due Publishing and Image G.I. Joe tales. The Joe Casey run on America's Elite is probably my favorite Joe tale so I strongly recommend that. The IDW relaunch is really great too and I think the launch will stick around for a while.
Atomic Robo is a must have. Pure genious and fun on every page. Hopefully the distribution will become better on these books becasue they are a treat and I cannot recommend these series enough.
Killer of Demons is yet another good book from Image. Image has really been on fire lately with such works as Chew, Walking Dead (read it already), Invincible, and Astounding Wolf Man. Robert Krikman is a beast.
Fear Agent is also another enjoyable read by the great creator known as Rick Remender. Good stuff. Dark Horse is also putting out the always good Helboy stuff.
Ghostface is a comic I found in an ad of Wizard. Its pretty good and is black and white for an interesting change of pace.
Finally, Icon (creator owned works from Marvel) has put out some great things. Powers, Criminal, and Incognito. Read 'em all. Also Marvel has put out a type of Indie anthology that uses Indie creators who put their own unique spins on Marvel mainstays. This is called Strange Tales. The Wonderful Wizard of Oz could also fit in the Indie category and maybe not but this is one of the best comic stories on stands.
I am also waiting for the new Pinocchio: Vampire Slayer series to come out which I think will be a fun read fromSlave Labor. Be on the lookout.
Thats what I'm reading. Post up!
