Taking no prisoners with my first interview for The Indie Index, I aimed high, moments later - Dirk Manning was knocking down my door. Well, if instant messengers had doors... Let's proceed.

The Indie Index is here!

Time to get this party started! Wow! This is totally happening. The Indie Index has come to life! That’s pretty special and Jesse at geek-genie.com thought so too because I've been invited to host The Indie Index on this incredible website! Thanks Jesse! Over time The Indie Index will grow and evolve while showcasing the happenings within the independent comic industry. The Indie Index will include interviews with creators and indie publishers, information regarding Kickstarter campaigns run by creators and general bits’n’bobs. I guess what I’m trying to convey is that there’s clearly an affinity for these independently created funny books. I mean, within 24 hours, I was offered a great platform to host such written pieces. The Indie Index is here as an effort to assist in getting the word out to/for those who would have otherwise never come across various indie titles. How many times can I use...
