Australian Paul Bradford introduces his “Noir” inspired Undercurrent series of comic stories with The Good Samaritan in Indie Comics Magazine’s Spring Issue, scheduled for preorder in Diamond’s April 2012 Previews under Aazurn Publishing.

Originally from Scotland, Bradford was brought up on the British comics that helped twist him into the writer he is today. Now living in Western Australia, he writes comics containing a broad spectrum of themes and ideas. He also writes Gothic poetry under the pseudonym Hierophantom and has produced small press “zines” through his company Inertia Publications.

“Paul picked artist Randy Valiente and his stark, realistic, black shadow style is eerily beautiful for this kind of black-hearted story,” said Indie Comics Magazine Publisher Gary Scott Beatty. “Undercurrent works really well in our format of done-in-one tales.”

Undercurrent is Bradford’s second story in Indie Comics Magazine. “Paul writes well in a variety of genres,” said Beatty. “This dark tale in our Spring issue is a world away from his Astral Crusaders in last year’s Indie Comics Magazine #3. Noir or war, Paul molds adventure and fear together superbly.”

In Indie Comics Magazine, short biographies and contact information are included with done-in-one stories so readers can easily seek out more of the creators’ work. For ongoing updates on all things relating to Bradford’s comics visit his blog at

Indie Comics Magazine’s Spring Issue will feature eight complete stories, from creators as diverse as Terry Cronin (Students of the Unusual), Eisner and Harvey nominee Douglas Paszkiewicz (Mad magazine) and Italian creator Maddalena Carrai (Creepy Gaga).

An alternate cover from Douglas Paszkiewicz will receive limited distribution through comic shops as well, said Beatty. “Arsenic Lullaby is Pasz’s comedy that is too twisted for Mad. Expect that kind of cover!”

No huge overprint, no digital version, no back issue sales, April’s Previews under Aazurn Publishing is the ONLY way comic readers can get Indie Comics Magazine’s Spring Issue!
