Having started a successful indie comics website selling platform, and launched a critically acclaimed anthology, we couldn’t help but wonder what Pete Genepool and the Comichaus guys would get up to next? Well it turns out they are branching into the world of digital comics, to launch a streaming service they are dubbing ‘a Netflix for indie comics’. With it’s mix of indie and digital comics being right up our alley, we knew we had to find out more!

The current world of global politics can often feel like they are the plots of an outlandish comic book. Which is great for those creating polically themed comic books as they can use it for inspiration. Two great example of this are R. Sikoryak’s Unquitable Trump which transposes the presdient tweets on to superhero covers. And just when you thought things couldn’t get worse, the guys from Man Vs Rock are back with their own take on things with UnPresidential!

We’ve had those moment where we want to try a new career direction and it hasn’t worked out, but in It’s Cold In The River At Night, the new book from Alex Potts and Avery Hill, our hero Carl takes on the challenge of building coffins for a surly local craftsmen, and gets much more than he bargained for. With it’s mix of melancholic isolation and futility in the face of attempted self discovery, we caught up with Alex to find out more about what drives Carl and co to do what they do.

We were lucky enough to round-up a slew of great books ahead of this year’s Nottingham Comic Convention, including Midnight Man: Gunspace, Perrywinkle and many more. But we also managed to pick up some great book on the day, and here are some of our favourites including the new chapters of Reckless Hero’s space western The Last Sheriff,  James Lawrences’ Legend of Mariposa zines, The Marionette Unit and Accent UK’s Westernoir.

The first volume of Alexis Deacon’s Geis was a dark fairytale that saw an evil sorceress takeover a kingdom and challenge the residents to compete for the right to be chief. But with new volume Geis Volume 2: A Game Without Rules, the stakes are higher than ever as the sorceress reveals her deadly intentions to two of the competitors, and the games become more complex and dangerous. But will A Game Without Rules be another winner, or could it do with better instructions?

What if a rock star was elected prime minister of the UK?! That’s the premise for the new Lizard Men mini series from Comichaus and writer Steve Horry that’s debuting on Kickstarter this week. With all the political upheaval in the past 2 years, this isn’t as ridiculous as it might seem (after all there’s a reality TV star in the White House), especially if the reason for this shock election was mysterious reptilian men who secretly run everything behind the scenes. We catch up with Steve to chat conspiracy theories and political upsets.

With the days having become shorter and the mornings colder, Winter is here in all it’s glory. And with this change to the harshest of seasons, we  decided to take a look at a webcomic which is equally harsh and unforgiving in it’s setting. David Derrick Jr’s Ghost of the Gulag tells the story of a Tiger and the war of beliefs he becomes embroiled in, but will we warm to this anthropomorphic webcomic, or will it leave us as cold as the Siberian winter?

Thanks to critically acclaimed books like Endless Summer and I Love This Part, Tillie Walden has become one of the most interesting voices on the indie scene today. But for her follow up to the surreal sci-fi of our Indie Comic Of The Year In A Sunbeam she has opted for an auto-biographical tale about ice skating in Texas. Will this be a gold medal winning performance or will it fall flat on the ice?

It’s the spookiest day of the year and to celebrate the day of ghosts and ghouls we take a look at three frightful indie horror comics including: Leah Moore and John Reppions latest collection of MR James short stories in Ghost Stories of An Antiquary Volume 2; the hilarious and horrible Horrere Halloween Special; plus Thom Burgess’ terrifying travellers tale Hallows Fell.
