John Vest On The Days Of Reading Indy Comics
posted July 23, 2010

It was wonderful picking up CBGB #1 with the new Jaime Hernandez cover at the comic book store yesterday. It reminded me of the days of finding his jackets more often, on titles like Renegade Romance, Vortex, Amazing Heroes...

I knew at the time in the 1980's how good I had it as a reader. Many independent serial comics came out regularly and the Hernandez Bros could often be found at your fingertips.
