How do you discover new indie books?

Do you feel there's a source that you go to for this stuff? A review place? See articles? Find out stuff at cons? I know Indie writers are probably super interested in reaching new readers, so how have they reached you in the past?

Great thread. Was looking for a more news oriented comic site as a side chick, but stuck with CBR which I've never really used before

If I'm browsing Viewcomic and a cover looks cool I check it out

My buddies seem to find a lot of indie stuff and tell me about them. I don't search out a lot on my own.

Also that. But 80% end up being shite. Could be my art preference

Like with avatar and Their series Uber I came across it in the comicbook store. 
I haven't really used the previews or other books for a heads up on upcoming titles. 
Otherwise, shit I see you guys talk about here or even shit I've seen Cbr post on Facebook or even randomly seeing shit on twitter. 
My negative Karma correlates to the amount of butthurt I've caused you!
