The Showcasing of the Indy Comic Book Week Sampler continues…!


The back cover to the book tells us that Solomon Azua is the galaxy’s most reckless adventurer and thief. He retrieves the gems of the universe from the jaws of death. If angels fear to travel there, Solomon’s already gone and come back…

This two-fisted adventure stands on its own as an entertaining romp on a backwater spaceport where ships crash and things blow up. Yet is is also a terrific first issue setting up the characters and scenario within a far-future space setting.

Solomon Azua is the first of six issues in this limited series. As creator Jake Ekiss told us in our Indy Comic Book Interview, he has production scheduled and expects issues to publish throughout 2010. I really dig Solomon Azua. It’s a beautiful, full-color book expertly produced with wit and style.

Our Grand Prize winner gets both issue #1 of Solomon Azua and a Solomon Azua print.  Our second and third prize winners also receive a copy of issue #1.


Ultraist Studios answered the call of Indy Comic Book Week, by using ICBW 2009 as a platform to launch SPY GUY #1 into the direct market.

Spy Guy #1 kicks off the First Strike storyline and includes the 16-page Ultraist Manifesto.

Our Grand Prize Winner and both second and third place winners receive Spy Guy #1.
