March Previews 2020 – Indie Spotlight Books

Previews gives us a glimpse of what’s to come. Here’s the independent spotlight new books coming out of March Previews.

Another Dracula book.. but not your typical one. Could be interesting.

Vlad Dracul #1 (of 3)

Vlad Dracul II, the Impaler, the Son of the Dragon, was a Warlord, a Voivod, a Guardian Warrior, an iconic historical figure who was able to successfully strike fear into the hearts of the fearsome Ottoman Empire.

Vlad is an epic story of love and war, a historical ride with rivers of blood, tears, swords and love and a discovery of a man that was, perhaps, the most famous warrior of his era that inspired the Dracula legends. This is the story of the man behind the myth.

This next one is a yes please… type of book for me. Sci-fi mixed with some Indiana Jones..

Osiris Path #1 (of 3)

An archaeologist is recruited to join a covert, military space program where he and his team must face a black magic cult that will stop at nothing to prevent the crew from deciphering the meaning of The Osiris Path.

The Osiris Path is like Indiana Jones in space!

The new Bunn book I’m anticipating to be a great read.

Rogue Planet #2

The crew of the salvage vessel Cortes set down on Lonely Orphan with dreams of getting rich.

Now, they desperately hope to escape with their lives, as the planet itself displays a malicious intelligence-an intelligence that turns the crew’s worst nightmares against them.

The book that’s limited even in pre-orders to 1 per customer. Matt Kindt rarely disappoints with his stories and writing as well.


LIMIT OF 1 COPY PER CUSTOMER. ANY CUSTOMERS ORDERING MORE THAN 1 COPY WILL HAVE EXCESS ORDERS AND COPIES REMOVED! At the height of World War II, the world’s most ingenious minds began a race to create a super-weapon capable of ending the war with the push of a button. One of those projects gave us the atom bomb…. and another produced the world’s first supercomputer: ENIAC — an immeasurably complex mathematical model built to target the Axis war machine. Everybody knows that. It’s real life American History. Or so we were told. On August 6th, 1945, the United States dropped the nuclear bomb on Hiroshima. Three days later, a second bomb was dropped on Nagasaki… Only President Truman wasn’t the one who gave the order. It was ENIAC. And now, 75 years later, its real plan is only just beginning… 

This next one just looks like a fun read.

Loggerhead Bloody Bayou One Shot (Cover A – Silverbax)

Loggerhead Bloody Bayou One Shot (Cover B – Ostlie)

Loggerhead Bloody Bayou One Shot (Cover B - Ostlie)The world as we knew it changed after the last of the great wars leaving a large portion of North America a dead wasteland. It’s in that wasteland that tales of a monster only known as Loggerhead exist.

Within this wasteland valuable elements and minerals have been unearthed creating a hotbed of illegal mining and overrun with scavengers. When some children find themselves endangered while witnessing an illegal scavenger mineral hunt a protector rises from the murky depths of the wasteland to exact retribution.

Featuring covers by Bryan Silverbax and a special variant cover by Walter Ostlie (Metalshark Bro!).

Any Planet of the Apes fans? This new book from Red 5 / Stonebot might be the book for you. For me, it’s really got to stand out (particularly from Planet of the Apes) but it’s still a definite check out.

Xira #1

Xira has been experimented on her entire life to help mankind create the perfect astronaut, making her smarter, faster, stronger.

When Xira is allowed to have a baby who will also be experimented on Xira has had enough and will do whatever it takes to get herself and her child to freedom.

AWA seems like it has some promising books on the way. I’m still going to keep these guys on probation though since this is the same guy/people who have attempted to break into the comic industry with a twist on how they do their books in the past.

The only thing they do have this time around is more well known writers and artists to help push these comics.

Old Haunts

Three Made Men, standing at the brink of retirement, find their unbreakable bond put to the ultimate test when they are suddenly assaulted by the ghosts of their past.

Confronted by decades of buried secrets – resentments, affairs, doublecrosses, and murders – the three friends have no choice but to unearth the deepest, darkest sin from their past and pray they don’t find an empty grave.

I really enjoy Max Bemis’s writing, so this new book he’s got coming out of Vault Comics is a must pick up.

Heavy #1 (Cover A – Donovan)

Heavy #1 (Cover B – Daniel)

Bill may be dead, but he’s got a job to do. Welcome to the Big Wait, where folks who do’t quite make the cut go to work off their debt. Everyone in the Wait’s got a job. Bill is a Heavy, whose job is policing the multiverse, making sure bad eggs get what’s coming to them. He’s on track to earn his Climb and reunite with the woman he loves… until he meets his new partner: the worst dude of all time.

Heavy is The Punisher for neurotics; Inception for the impatient; Preacher for… well, it’s a lot like Preacher. Max Bemis and Eryk Donovan bring you a story about the existential purpose of dumb boys with big guns.

Very typical story but it’s these types of stories that make great movies and shows that draw us in. Mystery, drama and seeking the truth!

Stargazer #1 (of 6)

Years ago Shae, her brother Kenny, and two childhood friends experienced a traumatic, unexplainable event that left Kenny scarred for life.

Kenny commits himself to the belief that what they experienced was an alien abduction.

Twenty years later and the friends have since drifted apart, but the sudden, mysterious disappearance of Kenny leads the group to reunite and discover the truth of what took place all those years ago.

This is likely in our near future as our technology advances. We’re losing a sense of socializing with others and will seek the help of technology, but when it fails, we lose our sense of hope, purpose.. and sanity!

Lonely Receiver #1 (Cover A – Hickman)

Catrin Vander, a lonely video producer, buys an Artificial Intelligence partner that’s meant to bond for life. After ten years together, her holographic wife suddenly discon-nects without a warning. The breakup drives Catrin to the point of near insanity.

She’s alone for the first time in years and reeling from a loss she can’t comprehend. Set in the new future, drenched in pastels and sunshine, LONELY RECEIVER is a horror/breakup story in five parts.

Written by Zac Thompson (UNDONE BY BLOOD, THE REPLACER, HER INFERNAL DESCENT, No One’s Rose, X-Men) and illustrated in color by Jen Hickman (MOTH & WHISPER, Test). Who are you/ //in another’s eye It’s not what you think// /don’t you cry.

I’m not big on most Titan books but this new one has me likely checking it out.

Cutting Edge Sirens Song #1 (Cover A – Guice)

Cutting Edge Sirens Song #1 (Cover B – Alberti)
Cutting Edge Sirens Song #1 (Cover C – Guice B&W)

Tomb Raider meets The League of Extraordinary Gentlemen in brand new series by renowned fantasy author and award-winning Italian artist.

Brought together by a clandestine corporation, the world’s greatest minds are set a challenge of epic proportions: the dodecathlon. Unlikely alliances are made in order to fulfill the quest, and uncover the mysterious truth behind it all. But as the conspiracy is unveiled, how many will survive…?

35th Anniversary special from it’s original issue, dubbed as the Godfather of American Manga. I’m not big on Manga but it’s got my interest to check out.

Pre-order to save some money cause I don’t think most shops will be going heavy on a $9.99 remastered reprint book, which seems to still be pretty affordable on the secondary market.

Ninja High School 35th Anniversary Ed One Shot

On our 35th Anniversary, we give you a little perspective on how much we’ve learned by going back to class…at Ninja High School!
