[Scroll To Bottom For Poll]
If you missed the introduction post to the Indie Comic Throwdown, you can read it HERE, but the brief recap is every month, we’ll announce a match-up and start the poll. At the end of the month, we’ll announce the results and offer our take on the battle. These Throwdowns are meant to be light-hearted, fun, and a feature to bring the fans together! Novemmber’s Throwdown, Helios Versus Shock, can be found HERE.
The poll for Caliber vs Omen will be open through 12/13/20. It will then be locked and we’ll begin writing the battle based on the poll results!
