i'll be going through my indie stack slowly over the next few days, but here are some of the ones i've really liked so far:
skin art - a strong debut from kay aranzanso, where she adapts a short story by angela pasion into a wordless comic. it's bittersweet, touching and very well-told visually.
plague - writer fidelis tan headlines this mini-anthology about the human toll of a mysterious plague that turns people into brittle shells (it's not a zombie plague). especially loved sunday morning and the title story plague for their succinct, lyrical storytelling.
bellboy and the hotel universe: pie in the sky - the little prince meets classic hanna-barbera cartoons in this wonderfully-drawn comic about an outer-space bellhop and his t-rex pal. some storytelling wrinkles could use some ironing out, but i'm definitely watching out for the next issue.
kubori kikiam 7 - a contender for best kubori kikiam story ever. it's the kikiams vs. survival reality show host "bur grills", and you know that guy eats anything. 16 pages of gut-busting laughs. michael david is a sick, twisted genius.
the elbimbo adaptations - josel nicolas' most ambitious and challenging work yet. a comic based on a book based on a song--so meta it makes my head hurt. virtuoso comics-making.
