How do you discover new indie books?
« on: May 26, 2017, 06:00:51 PM »

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

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.

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.
