Robbie Morrison and Jim Murray bring us book 1 of Drowntown – a sci-fi, noir-thriller with one of the coolest covers I’ve seen in a long time…….and the big question is “Is it any good?”

Jon Lock’s latest release sees Afterlife Inc. hit its third volume following a VERY successful Kickstarter he ran earlier this year and given how good those first two volumes were – it’s no wonder that gave the Kickstarter the momentum it needed to meet its target.

With the first five issues of Lou Scannon going from strength to strength (see #1, #2, #3, #4 & #5) – it was always going to be interesting to see what creators Jim Bampfield, Kris Carter & Dan Harris would do next with their sci-fi, comedy masterpiece.

Another first for my growing independent comic sees Unthank Comics continues its new releases with Gonzo Cosmic #1 from creator Garry Mac and a proper sci-fi epic that I know from issue #1 is going to mess with my head……BRING IT ON!!!

We’re fortunate at Comics Anonymous to be able to pick up a broad range of indie/self-published titles from local and UK talent…..and we’re even more fortunate to be able to add these to our regular pull-lists. The latest from John Lees (story), Garry Mac (art) & Colin Bell (lettering) is Black Leaf #1.

The latest offering Black Hearted Press sees Britain in a new light……but the approach has brought with it an original idea as well as the media tag of being “sick”. As Indie titles have always been free of the shackles that a big publisher can bring it’s no real surprise that something like this was due to come along – but what makes this release different?

Debuting at this year’s Thought Bubble Comic Festival in Leeds on the 23rd & 24th of November is Sam Read’s first foray into the world of self-published comics although his recent Second place in Grayhaven Comics Apprentice competition was a definite indicator of how good Sam could be.

First release from Dogooder Comics sees an issue #1 that I’ve been hyped about since that first Facebook tease of an early image. With previous collaborators Neil Slorance & Colin Bell bring an issue full of all-ages fun and slap us in the face with it like a wet kipper in an “a-la-Monty-Python style”

Jeff Lemire has been a relatively new addition to my regular “folks to look out for” list – his work on Animal Man for DC’s New 52 “reboot” was the first real exposure I’d had to his work….and soon after that I met him at Thought Bubble a few years ago. To hear he was working on this sci-fi series had me hyped at first…..and although I didn’t pre-order it at first……it’s on that list now.
