It would help if you would tell us something more specific about your tastes.
I've already heard of or read most of those.

I was looking for recs for more recent, more under-the-radar stuff. Any recent indies worth reading?

Out of those, which would you say was the best?
Rachel Rising
Glitter Kiss (so bad it's good)
Godzilla in Hell
Paper Girls
>Out of those, which would you say was the best?
Man, that's hard to answer. They're all mostly different from one another.
Cat & Mouse I recently started reading, about some ninjas that work for the Mafia. They meet this veterinarian dude who got transformed into something resembling a devil. Really interesting, well written characters, great late 80s/early 90s indie B&W art.

There should be mirrors on the archives, if you don't like Tus, or if any link is broken.

I really have to go now, hope you find something which you enjoy.
Well, there's other people in this thread, so here have some more.
> Any recent indies worth reading
I don't know how under the radar it is but Southern Bastards is great and clearly where Aaron is putting his efforts.

Sheriff of Babylon is two issues in. It's by Tom King (He's doing the Vision comic and did that great Grayson FE Tie in). It's Vertigo so technically DC.

Godzilla in Hell. Maybe not an indie but fantastic all the same. Every issue is a new creative team and it's all good
Death Vigil is fun. So is Wayward.

>This good? I'm interested in reading it.
Check out the first issue. If you like it keep going because it maintains a similar tone and atmosphere throughout (we're only on issue 4 though). It's really hit-or-miss but I enjoy it alot.

>Godzilla in Hell. Maybe not an indie but fantastic all the same. Every issue is a new creative team and it's all good
I've read the first few issues but fucked up and didn't read the rest of a storytime while it was up. It was great reading though.


I'll check it out.

>Godzilla in Hell
Definitely read it, the trade should be coming out within the next month or two if you can't find the individuals anywhere. Greatest book of 2015 in my opinion.
Godzilla in Hell got me so pumped for Godzilla stuff its ridiculous
How the hell did you get that from GiH?
A whole lot of Ninja Gaiden involves tanking Fiend after Fiend and pushing through different planes. Gave me a similar impression to Big G going through his demons and fighting through the layers of hell.
Oh fuck, that's a good point.
Half of these are fucking amazing 10/10 must read comics and half are indie garbage. But great taste overall.

>Badger (I don't really consider it to be capeshit)

It's not. It's literally about a dude who wears a costume because he's mentally ill. There really aren't any "cape stories" or characters that fit the "superhero" mold.
Some people are really anal about capeshit and costumed characters.
Not that guy, but Badger is the best fucking thing I've ever read. Cherry Poptart is also must read, though it's porn fyi. Dark Horse's first volume of Conan is also the best indie book of the 21st century and you're missing out if you don't read it.

Reminder that Mister X is STILL the most singularly unique vision in the comics medium over 30 years later. AND it's had probably almost definitely the single greatest revival of any classic series in history.

Great book. Mannion nails that weird pinup style
Any of it. Mainly find/read the Hunter Rose related arcs. "Black, Red, White", "White, Black, Red", etc.

1) Hero Discovered
2) Hero Defined
3) Hero Denied forever never

>Sandman Mystery Theatre
Matt Wagner fucking loves the 1920's-1930's
Grendel vs. The Shadow is my personal favorite Grendel story and easily one of the most underrated crossovers of all time.
What're some OPERATOR AS FUCK comics worth reading?

Literally the greatest post-apocalyptic story ever told.
