Independent Comic Book Companies
« on: November 08, 2010, 09:01:58 pm »
I was sorting through my comics and I ran across 7 brothers by Virgin Comics and Ruse by Crossgen and it got me thinking. What comics by Independent Comic book companies do you enjoy reading the most right now and which ones do you miss the most if the publishing company folded. For the sake of this conversation lets say that independent comics are anything outside of Marvel and DC. To start off, I enjoy reading Irredeemable by Boom  and The Boys by Dynamite right now,but I really miss Negation by Crossgen

Very much digging IRREDEEMABLE from Boom.

CROSSED from Avatar.

Did SUPERGOD finish?  Want more of that. 

All the different HELLBOY permutations from Dark Horse.

LOVE AND ROCKETS when it appears.

I enjoyed Star Wars:  Legacy, but that has just ended, but a mini-series based on it is about to begin.

Invincible. (Along with spin-offs like Guardians of the Globe.)

yeah, it is ill.  Definitely needs bagging.  In the same catagory, NECROMICON.

I forgot to mention WALKING DEAD, but that should be on my indie list too.  Along with INVINCEABLE and SAVAGE DRAGON.

Hey, Reggie. You ever thought of releasing a new Image or independent/creator owned book?

For some reason I can see a RH hero drawn in the style we see in Invincible or Wolfman.  Don't know why.

(Hey Reggie, have you read Invincible 75?  Wanna ask you a question about it, but don't want to spoil it.)

Is that the latest issue?  The war in space?  Yes.

Do you think that Oliver is really dead?  Part of me is hoping his insect heritage might save him; and Invincible did survive some impressive wounds previously.

Yeah, I don't think he's dead either.

Between Redjack and you, I'm even MORE inspired.
