Hey Kids, Comics! #235 - Independents Day

Hot on the heels of the "Period Pieces" story arc, the latest issue runs a bit late for the Fourth of July, but none the less carries that theme with a look at the various booms and busts and myriad titles that are collectively known as Indys.  

Andrew Farmer and Cole Houston are joined by comic book scholar Weldon Adams in an exploration of independent comic publishers and their work.  What defines a comic as an Indy?  What comics of this ilk managed to reach the pinacles of success?  Which ambitious titles failed miserable and which miserable titles failed even more so in the often flooded marketplace?  These and other questions are posed and answered as Hey Kids, Comics! declares independents!
