With major distributor Diamond Comics taking the week off from shipping comics this week, many stores are promoting indy comics. Check out www.indycomicbookweek.com for more details.
Here are a few indy recommendations from Nerdage:
Atomic Robo: This Red 5 title features a robot fighting Nazis. Lots of action and humor from Brian Clevinger and Scott Wegener.
Breathers: In the near future, everyone must wear breathing devices to protect them from the earth’s poisoned air. But is the government telling the truth about the atmosphere? This much talked about minicomic is being developed as an independent film, as well.
Robot 13: Another robot hero, this one was discovered on the ocean floor in 1939. It’s got elements of Frankenstein, steampunk and Greek mythology, and should appeal to “Hellboy” fans.
