Wow, MICA is just down the street from me. Her site said that she will be doing a short story in an upcoming issue of House of Mystery. Which is my opinion is one of the consistently best written and drawn book out there! It's not uncommon to see art stories in that book by Darwin Cooke or Jeff Lemire in that book. If you are a fan of the Sandman or stories in that vein, you should pick up that book.
I feel this site does an excellent job with letting us know about books outside of the big 2. I remember an article promoting DHP. Also Sam Costello has a monthly feature called Indie Comics Coming Attractions. I know I've pick up a book or two each month from that list.
For me, I don’t want to give up an indie book that I am buying in order to pick up a new DC book. I feel that DC will have to work extra hard to make me want to spend more on their product. I much rather spend more money one issue of DHP then buy 2 extra Batman books.
