Your Creator-Owned Comics Shopping List for June 29th, 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 Javascript 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 many are 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 may 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 books listed this week, I shall be picking up: American Vampire #16, Butcher Baker: The Righteous Maker #4, Scalped #50, Skullkickers #8, Something Monstrous, Super Dinosaur #3,The Goon #34, The Sixth Gun #12, The Walking Dead #86, Usagi Yojimbo #138, and Witch Doctor #1.

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! Please also let me know if I have missed a book that should be on the list, and I’ll be sure to add it!

Please note though that not all of these comics may be available at your local comic shop, particularly those found in the non-premiere publisher section, so it’s best to check to check ahead to see if your retailer has ordered in the comics you are after.

  1. I LOVE this idea! So much of the “what’s new” columns are clogged to the brim with offerings from The Big Two and nary an indy title in the mix… KUDOS on a great idea!

    Now let’s get to some shilling. I’ve got a weekly web-comic that is more graphic novel in nature, just being released one page per week (Wednesdays). It is called “Birth of Venus” and we like to call it a “superhero noir”… about a pregnant superhero. Oh, and 100% creator-owned.

    Take a look and tell some folks if you like what you see!

    Much thanks!
