The Spirit Stalker is On the Trail of Evil in Indie Comics Magazine's Spring Issue

It's night at a nearly empty western town, and Spirit Stalker Long-Stare Jepson is on the trail of the Horned Prince. It's Indie Comics Magazine's Spring Issue, scheduled for preorder in Diamond's April 2012 Previews under Aazurn Publishing, and blood will be spilled.

Dan Davis' Legend of the Spirit Stalker visits Indie Comics Magazine in a short story, fresh from his supernatural western tale graphic novel A Storm of Reckonings. The Stalker is both a shaman of Choctaw descent and a bounty hunter of the "supra-natural," whose sole duty is to defend his tribe and his world from evil men and spirits of darkness.

"Davis may be based in New York City now, but he was born in Texas and it shows," said Indie Comics Magazine Publisher Gary Scott Beatty. "He's not one of those city boys dreaming about the old west. You can tell Dan has spent some time in the saddle."

That doesn't mean Legend of the Spirit Stalker is a dusty, old fashioned western, said Beatty. "Davis does a great job of combining science fiction, fantasy, suspense, horror, and the old West into a new kind of adventure. The hero may be chasing the supernatural, but the story feels real and grounded, touched with comedy, until all hell breaks loose."

In Indie Comics Magazine, short biographies and contact information are included with done-in-one stories so readers can easily seek out more of the creators' work. Preview selections from the graphic novel and learn more about the Spirit Stalker screenplay at

Indie Comics Magazine's Spring Issue will feature eight complete stories, from creators as diverse as Terry Cronin (Students of the Unusual), Eisner and Harvey nominee Douglas Paszkiewicz (Mad magazine), Australia's Paul Bradford (Undercurrent) and Italian creator Maddalena Carrai (Creepy Gaga).

An alternate cover from Douglas Paszkiewicz will receive limited distribution through comic shops as well, said Beatty. "Arsenic Lullaby is Pasz's comedy that is too twisted for Mad. Expect that kind of cover!"

Indie Comics Magazine is 64 pages of the best story and art from today's independent comic book creators. No huge overprint, no digital version, no back issue sales, April's Previews under Aazurn Publishing is the ONLY way comic readers can get Indie Comics Magazine's Spring Issue!

About the Author - SuperginraiX

SuperginraiX is the biggest sap on The Outhousers' payroll (wait, we get paid?). He reads every issue of every crappy Marvel crossover so you don't have to. Whats worse is that he pays for his books, thus condoning Marvel's behavior. If The Outhouse cared for his well being at all, they'd try and get him into some sort of rehab center. But, alas, none of us even know how to say his name. For a good time, ask Super why Captian America jumped off the Helicarrier in Fear Itself. Super lives in the frozen wastland that is Minnesota with 15% of the state's population living under his roof: a wife he makes wear an Optimus Prime mask, two gremlins, and his mother-in-law.
