Indie Cover Spotlight: Puma Blues #3

So in completely unexpected news, it looks like the seminal indie series Puma Blues, which introduced artist Michael Zulli to the world, is going to be completed and collected!

This is one of the books from 80s that I’m aware of, and even have a few issues, but have never read. part of my hesitation was knowing that the creators had a falling out and never completed it. But now it looks like I’ll be able to finally dig into the experimental series.

      Indie Cover Spotlight: Unicorn Isle #5

      Since I kicked off the week with an 80s fantasy comic, I figured I’d stick to the theme, so here’s the cover to Unicorn Isle #5:

      UnicornIsle5

      Cover art by Nicholas Koenig, published May 1987 by Apple Comics (issue 1 & 2 came out through WaRP Graphics). I know nothing about this series, though. And I have a feeling it never completed its planned 12-issue run.

        Starting this week, the ICS feature will be moving to a Tue/Thr update schedule, so I can free up Wednesday for a new (old) feature. What could it be? Tune in tomorrow and find out!

        Today’s cover is from a black-and-white fantasy comic titled Dragon Of The Valkyr, published in the mid-80s by RAK Graphics:

        That’s the same publisher of these previously featured comics.
