Media Release — From highly trained, covert operatives, to anthropomorphic noire, to murder foul, Indie Comics Magazine #9 explores feats of excitement and peril in a special Adventure Issue, for order from February 2015’s Previews catalog under Aazurn Publishing!
“There’s a lot of straight forward, butt kicking action in this issue,” chuckled Publisher Gary Scott Beatty, “but all eight tales are still done-in-one, complete stories. We have heroes on both sides of the law, an agent of the Vatican who is a law unto himself, space adventure, super heroes, and even (shudder!) lawyers in Indie Comics Magazine #9!”
The Adventure Issue features stories from Omar Morales, Ramon Gil, Terry Cronin, Devastating Roulette Studios, Guys ‘N’ Ties, Paul Bradford, Marta Tanrikulu, Troy Vevasis, and a monstrous cover by Beatty himself. “We are half returning talent and half brilliant newcomers, and every one of them kicked it up a notch!”
“Cruzader, Agent of the Vatican” runs deadly missions for the pope! Omar Morales is the energetic writer, creator, and publisher of the action-packed “CruZader” graphic novel. With the tagline “Prophecies, Aliens, Sinners and Saints,” CruZader features pencils and inks by Joel Cotejar.
“The Professional(s) kick butt to save a city and build a legend! Writer Ramon Gil spent 20 years working advertising in New York City. He taught at the Parsons School of Design, started his own design and marketing company, and now writes SciFies, The Men from Darpa, The Hard Code and more.
A mysterious hooded cult appears for “The Harvest!” Troy Vevasis’ latest anthology series is Ghostly Comics #2. Fan favorites Furry Qaileny (all ages comics), Vaxdor and The Ikton Conflict, and the Trolik series featured distinctive art by Lee Milewski.
We investigate a brutal murder in “The Case of the Misused Grant!” Marta Tanrikulu is an American writer of comics stories in various genres. Her work has appeared on the Verticalismi website, in Red Stylo Media anthologies, and in the Cellar Door: Ancient, the 215 Ink Ignition Volume 1, the Arcana Steampunk Volume 2, and the Indie Ladies Comic: Ladies Chatter anthologies.
Microman is let go from his super-group in “The Downsizing of Quentin Mykroh!” Devastating Roulette Studios is a team of creators formed in 1993 by writer Derek Adnams and Brandon Bullock.
Uncle Pat reveals the story of a maiden, disease, Conquistadors and death, in “The Womanatee!” Writer Terry Cronin is a creator of Students of the Unusual, author of The Skinvestigator novels, and writer of the new, all ages comic series “Horse Power G.”
Heresy shall not be tolerated as the Astral Crusaders return! Writer Paul Bradford lives in Western Australia and 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.
Plus, we introduce “Toots Malloy, Blues Ninja,” a no-nonsense musician with a passion for his art. The series is written by Patrick Cline and produced by Guys ‘N’ Ties Comic Studio: Matt Rooke, Stephen Sharar, David Andres, and Jon Scrivens.
“You know, other companies are always saying how an issue is a jumping on point for new readers. All of our issues are great for new readers — nothing continues!” said Beatty.
