Indie Comics Corner

Lately I’ve become more and more interested in independent and creator owned comics. I keep hearing such great things about books outside of the Big 2, and sometimes it’s nice to get outside of the superhero genre. I’ve also really started to enjoy buying comics digitally. I’m still buying my Big 2 stuff in print, but I like being able to just it down with my iPad and download a comic, often at a cheaper price than in print. In this post I’ll be discussing two books that I’ve started reading digitally, one that is well into its run and one that is just getting started. The first is The Sixth Gun from Oni Press, written by Cullen Bunn with art by Brian Hurtt. The second is Prophet from Image Comics, written by Brandon Graham with art by Simon Roy. I’ll also list some other books I’m interested in and that you should be checking out.

Initial Reactions to DC’s “Before Watchmen”

Today, the other shoe finally dropped. DC has announced 7 prequel miniseries to 1986’s seminal Watchmen, by Alan Moore and Dave Gibbons. Under the “Before Watchmen” banner, these 7 miniseries will range in length of 4 to 6 issues. An epilogue issue will wrap up the series, bringing the total number of issues to 35. I’ve already weighed in on my opinion on the idea of Watchmen prequels here. Now that DC has come clean and revealed the prequels, as well as their creative teams, I’ll re-examine the matter and give my initial impressions of the project after the jump. You can check out the original story here at DC’s blog.
