Indie Comics Corner: March 2012

Welcome to another edition of Indie Comics Corner. I didn’t plan on making this an ongoing feature, but it seems like every month smaller publishers like Image, Vertigo, and Dark Horse are putting out intriguing new series. Here I’ll be giving my opinion on four new series, 3 from Image and one from Vertigo. While super hero comics from DC and Marvel are the bread and butter of the comics industry, it’s really great to support up and coming creators and smaller publishers. Who knows, one of these books could be the next Walking Dead. Check out the books after the jump and head over to Comixology or another digital comic provider to give them a shot. Continue reading

February saw the release of the sixth issues of the New 52. We’re officially halfway into the first year of the New 52. The first story-arcs are wrapped up (well, mostly) and the foundations have been laid. Because of this, there were some really exciting developments this month. However, you may notice that I only have 9 comics in the top 10 this month. Each month I’ve cut back on the New 52 books I’m reading in an attempt to get to a reasonable number. It is my hope that I end up reading the cream of the crop, the best the New 52 has to offer. However, this month I had only had 9 books that rated above an 8.0/10. I did not feel like a comic that rated below an 8 on my scale deserved recognition in the top 10, so I left it empty. If you’re interested, my next highest ranking book was Aquaman, which featured a one-off tale of a day in the life of Mera. The issue started off weakly, but ended up getting a lot better. It was the book’s art that really ended up hurting it for me. Anyway, click to read my impressions of the top 9 New 52 books of February.
