The final Indie Penance (for now) says farewell with mini-reviews of Glorious Wrestling Alliance, Murder, The Belles, Lonely Dogs Anthology and Herbert West.

This week: The Illuminati Ball, Dodge Danger and Going to the Chapel, Serious Creatures and Geek Girl.

Indie Penance is back from its summer break with Griff Gristle, The Legend of La Mariposa and Daughter of Titan.
