A Compendium of Cool Comics Cosplay: Indie and Small Press Edition

It’s time once again for our Friday comic book cosplay feature, casting the spotlight on the best comics related costumery from the cosplay community.  This week is a little different, as we’re presenting our long anticipated Indie and Small Press theme week, spotlighting some cool cosplay of characters who might not necessarily be as familiar as others, but no less deserving of a special place here. We’d like to thank all the cosplayers who submitted pictures for our enjoyment.

So, get ready and enjoy some awesome cosplay of Aphrodite IX, Gen 13, Ramona Flowers, Judge Dredd, Magdalena, GI Joe, Red Sonja, Hellboy, Modesty Blaise, the Scott Pilgrim crew, Witchblade and The Walking Dead!

Gamma Squad is committed to giving a voice to the cosplay community that thrives in groups like our friends at TheSuperheroCostumingForum.com. Each week we spotlight our favorite costumes and in addition we also host a regular cosplay contest, with the results forming a special theme week. We invite cosplayers, costumers and photographers to submit pictures of their work that relates to the theme (or any cosplay in general!) to our Flickr group to be considered. We’ll then pick our top choices and post them on Gamma Squad for the adoration of all.

For now, enjoy this week’s selection!
