Whether it is Indie comics or Indie movies you know the so called "fans" are going to totally ignore you unless you are over hyped and from a big studio (comics -Marvel/DC).
The proof is there in abundance as a couple more small publishers pass on into comics purgatory and...well, I'm guessing lack of giant robots, huge explosions and no shit storyline did it for Shia -notice how they laugh and make it all about him? What about the other actors? The film crew? The script writers?
Being "Independent" anything these days is bad and yet the trendy hip crowd are supposed to be big supporters of "Indie stuff".
Creators are doing their bit....you hang your heads in shame.
You people are killing us off one by one while bemoaning the lack of independents and diversity
