4. long lost - only one issue so far, but probably my comic of the year. every word and image perfectly judged. reader is so involved, and therefore so ready to be horrified.

I saw the third issue of this whilst trawling through Comixology for forthcoming releases so on a whim I ordered the first two issues off of E-bay, should be delivered tomorrow.  Sounds like I made a good investment.

Well they came yesterday, I've read them and yep pretty good going so far, will certainly order the rest when they are released.  One slight quibble is that the art style sometimes edges towards "tumblr-esque" but on the whole a good read, would recommend.

Late to the party, as usual  :-[

Like others, keeping it down to just five is tough, but I've had a go:
1. Black Hammer
2. Southern Bastards
3. Postal
4. Super Sons
5. Dept. H

I feel like 2017 was a great year for creator-owened titles. I hope 2018 continues in the same vein.

1. Black Hammer


That's another one that didn't make my list for reason that bemuse me... then I look at what's on my list and I remember why.

As you say an astonishing good year for comics!
