    You only noted a few “indie” titles (technically, if it’s coming from Dark Horse, Image or IDW, it’s not really “indie”, but I’m guessing you simply mean “not Marvel, not DC/Vertigo” so I’ll continue) so I don’t know if you’ve checked into the following titles, but you might give them a shot:

    From Dark Horse: Colder, 47 Ronin (both limited series–the former is horror/thriller; the latter is historical with art from Stan Sakai showing he can draw things other than critters) and Empowered (this usually comes out as OGNs with the occasional standard comic-book format one-shot)

    From Image: Fatale, Saga, Happy (the first two are ongoing–a noir/pulp-flavored series and an SF series; the last is a mini, a crime story from the mind of Grant Morrison)

    From Boom!: Roger Langridge’s Snarked (should be out in TPB), Peanuts (the new stuff might not be quite up there with the classic, but it’s very well done), Steed and Mrs Peel (if you have any love or affection for the old 60s TV series, you’ll like this one)

    Dynamite (D.E.) has a lot of licensed properties so there’s pretty much a “something for everyone” feel, ranging from the Green Hornet and the Shadow to the Bionic Man and Bionic Woman to the Lone Ranger and Sherlock Holmes. But, the company’s also begun doing some non-licensed material such as “Damsels” (which isn’t quite as much the “Fables” rip-off it might have seemed to be, due in no small part to the writing team of Leah Moore and John Rippion), “Masks” (which is technically licensed, but also a “crossover” of the great pulp heroes like the Shadow, the Green Hornet and the Spider with a few other period-appropriate heroes) and Garth Ennis’s Battlefields series (the first two miniseries have been collected and there’s a new miniseries out now).

    • Thanks for the suggestions Joe! Just to note: Yes, when I say “Indie” I mean anything NOT marvel or DC. And for what it’s worth: I’ve read Saga, and it wasn’t my cup of tea. Neither is Empowered (which I in fact hate…). There are some in your list that I will certainly give a try though, for sure.

    The Indy world is the hotness. It respects the fan.

    p.s. Leave on Claire and Cliff. They’re good for the heart.
