Your Creator-Owned Comics Shopping List for March 9th, 2011


What is this?

Every week I like to pull apart Diamond’s confirmed shipping list for the week, and create a list of all of the creator-owned titles that will be arriving in stores that Wednesday. I then use the magic of Flash to pull the details on the books from, and hey presto!


Good question! Well, the primary reason is that there are a ton of great creator-owned comics out there, and they are mostly being created on a shoe-string budget. This generally means that the creators are able to spend little to no money on marketing these titles, and so many books go by unnoticed, and just end up gathering dust on the shelves. My hope is that by reading through this weekly list, something might catch your eye, and you might decide to give something new a try. It’s by no means a list of everything you should be buying every week, but more like a guideline to let you know what is available, should you wish to try out a creator-owned comic.

Of the comics listed this week, I shall be picking up: Captain Swing #3, , Garth Ennis’ Jennifer Blood #2, Elephantmen #30, The Walking Dead #82, iZombie #11, Stuff of Legend: the Jungle #4. Buy them all!

What are you picking up this week?

As always, if you noticed something in the list that isn’t creator-owned, please let me know, and I’ll remove it. It’s sometimes hard to determine who actually owns what! One situation that I’m particularly unclear on is comics based on novels - is the novel’s creator the owner, or the original publisher?
