Indy Books of the Week - Two for Tuesday

There's not much time left as we get closer to Indy Comic Book Week, so I thought I'd double-up on the home stretch to spotlight more indy books. Some of my best friends write indy books and here are the latest offerings of two of them.
At first glance, you might think you'd need a special permit from the CMLDF to purchase Gene Simmons' Dominatrix, but there's a lot more to this comic than the chosen profession of the main character. The KISS bass player may have his name on the title, but the book is all Sean Taylor. Sexy, fun, adventurous, intriguing, dangerous, and witty - all things the writer aspires to be someday! :) Artist Flavio Hoffe and Esteve Polls serve up the story with plenty of helpings of cheesecake and the series features gorgeous covers by Alex Garner. Dominique Stern is Diana Prince by way of Quentin Tarantino. If you liked J.J. Abram's Alias tv series, you'll want to check out the volume one trade which should be available at fine comic and book stores everywhere. Keep up with all that is Sean at the Taylorverse.

Last week saw the release of Fantastix, a graphic novel created by Jason Shane Powell, written by Bobby Nash with art by Daniele Serra. A dark tale of meta humans fighting for survival in a world not too different from our own. I have not yet had the chance to read this graphic novel, nor the Fantastix:Code Red novel by Bobby Nash, but I did recently complete the writer's suspenseful thriller Evil Ways. The man knows dark and I also happen to know he knows his superheroes too (even if we do have different titles at the top of our stack), so I'm extremely interested to read about the world of Fantastix. The graphic novel is on sale at IndyPlanet and to keep up with all that is Bobby, be sure to check out the Nash News blog.

Thanks for the plud, Mike. I too hope to one day be as witty as Sean Taylor. :)

Anytime Bobby! I am looking forward to the Fantastix trade! I hope you have some copies at the next show!

That is my plan. I have a small shipment scheduled to arrive early January. I did order a copy through the site that should arrive in a week or so. Looking forward to seeing how it all comes together.
