Official Press Release:
Readers tired of corporate comics’ constant reboots rejoice! Indie Comics #1 features six adventure tales that could end anywhere. The first issue of Indie Comics will be listed in June 2016’s Previews catalog under Aazurn Publishing.
Rick Bonn asks “Why Did the Caveman Cross the Sea?” Brad Olrich’s mercenaries attempt a raid on Rectory VII, “At Galaxy’s Core.” Terry Cronin plunges three college students on spring break into an underground world of bloodsucking women. Gary Scott Beatty follows The Maketch Girl and elder gods into darkness. Michael R. Carr presents two aging adversaries converging for a final encounter. And diesel punk meets modern world in Paul Bradford’s “The Night Errant!”
“I’ve found escape from constant corporate continuity reboots in the indie comic community,” said Aazurn Publishing’s Gary Scott Beatty. “The big two rehash slightly different versions of the same story and I find that boring. Readers who crave consistent creative teams and stories that could go, quite literally, anywhere, should give Indie Comics #1 a try.”
“With all of these talented people and genre adventures, we’re specializing in bang for your buck,” said Beatty. “An Aazurn subscription at your comic shop will not land you in the middle of a mega-series. Indie Comics #2 and #3 will be in Previews in August and October.”
Mature themes, 48 pages, B&W, $4.99.
