Our latest round-up of fantastic indie comics includes: Submerged, a subterranean adventure story from the team at Vault Comics; The Herebey Dragons an all ages fantasy comic from writer Simon Birks; and Glacier City, the latest from Brian K Vaughan’s Panel Syndicate platform, with a story by Copperhead’s Jay Faerber.

For his follow up to the psychedelic Void Trip, writer Ryan O’Sullivan’s latest creator-owned series for Vault Comics sees a failed writer wrongfully picked to be the saviour of mankind. Packed full of smart dialgue, stunning artwork and an arch deconstruction of comic book conventions, we see whether Fearscape is anything worth being afraid of.

We were drawn into the world of Barry Keegan’s The Bog Road from the minute we saw that iconic cover with it’s title etched in the tangled roots of foreboding tree. But can this Celtic monster story live up to the intricate potential of it’s iconic opener, or will we get bogged down in the journey once we take a trip down the road?

With the first full issue of Mike Sambrook’s Bun proper coming very soon, and the first 11 pages now available for free on Gumroad, we look back at that sampler issue about a giant bunny trying to find his way in the world. But does writer Mike Sambrook manage to create a sweet all ages tale, that still has a touch of the mixed up Madius magic to it?

Our latest spotlight on the world of small press comics features: A Projection, a new slice of interesting avant garde comics from Avery Hill; Samuel London’s quirky and quant debut Milford Green; and 10 page freebie comic The Train Terminates Here that is anything but cheap and cheerful!

Digital comics giant ComiXology have turned publisher with their new collection of ComiXology Originals. This opening collection of four titles include all ages superhero adventure Super Freaks; a new series of Richard Starkings’ long running Elephantmen; a Starkings original called Ask For Mercy; and Savage Game from NFL player Ryan Kalil. 

This month’s small press spotlight looks at three very different genre tales: starting off with the collected edition of Jordan Kroeger’s crazy combat comic The Fist; following that is goth monsters in the wild west courtesy of Frankenstein Texas; and last but by no means least is wordless zombie sci-fi comic Z from D4VE’s Valentin Ramon.

The latest book from Brighton’s Mad Robot Comics, home to Cadavers and Last Exit to Brighton, sees a tough as nails London detective investigate some grisly murders in a quaint country village. But will Murder Most Mundane manage to be more meaningful than it’s murders.

The ‘annoyingly good’ Matt Garvey returns with yet another new title this month in Red Rocket Comet the tale of an aging hero plagued by nightmares from the past. The prolific creator of white NOIR, The Ether and The Devil In Disguise has teamed up with Circusside’s Grayham Puttock and Captain Cosmic’s Andy W. Clift to create a dark and twisted superhero tale that reads like Watchmen reimagined by Mark Millar or Ed Brubaker. So buckle up for launch!
