Comments

  1. Torsten Adair says:

    Walking Dead isn’t an independent title?
    Betty and Veronica is?

    *scratches head*

  2. LukeCage says:

    Tale of Sand is pretty high up there for a book that’s pretty impossible to find.

  3. Is this list from Diamond? It seems to be every not “front of Previews” publisher.

    (Boom and Dynamite show up. Image, Dark Horse, and IDW do not.)

    So, what is indie and what is small?

Speak Your Mind
