Wish I could make this a poll.

What is your favorite, most "consistently providing" publisher outside the big two? We know who would win that one... but what about the independents?

My vote goes to First comics, now defunct.

Thats a good question.

I think for a larger independent publisher my vote would go to Dark Horse and Bongo.

Then for a smaller independent I would have to go with Red 5 because they have some real good titles coming out.

I've seen some good stuff come from IDW, but I rarely venture outside of Marvel.

I tend to buy stuff from Dynamite though, cause they have the Army of Darkness property.

Since the only other publishers I've collected outside of Marvel is Image and Dark Horse, I have to go with them. Unfortunately, I don't have a lot of experience outside Marvel.

That's like only reading the New Testament. You have got to try some DC.

I have every book Timb Bomb Comics has published to date. Dancing

My favourite publisher has to be Marvel probably, but with DC gnarling on their heels becuse DC are swiftly getting one over on Marvel in my mind as of late.

1.Marvel/DC
2.Dark Horse
3.Image

Dark Horse are awesome, they never fail to put out something brilliant. Image because of Robert Kirkman and Madman.

D5 and anyone else interested. If you guys want to post a list in this thread I will turn it into a poll for you. I fall into the same boat a Jeff. I have Marvel, Dark Horse and embarassingly enough, DC comics in my collection. If I went ahead and listed the smaller companies I know, I am sure people would be disappointed in me for leaving out their favourites. List them and I will create a poll.

First Comics!?!Think
So you are thinking about old independent companies as well.

I really like Pacific, with their Dave Steven's stuff like Rocketeer, and I really liked Eclipes with their Miracleman stuff!!!!Drooling

I also really love America's Best Comics for obvious reasons!

First and Dark Horse are great as well.


Come check out the new story line in

"FEET OF CLAY".

I think polls are limited to just 9 choices, so why not make two polls. One for current publishers and one for publishers that are no longer in business.

Past publishers:
Dell
Gold Key
Charlton
E.C.
Pacific
First
Eclipse
Valiant
Malibu

Present publishers:
Dark Horse
Image
Archie
Top Cow
Dynamite
Zenescope
IDW
Bongo

Hmmm...
right now, I get the following-
Dark Horse (can they truly be called "independent" anymore?)-Star Wars, Solomon Kane, Conan, Hellboy

IDW- Angel, Star Trek, Dr.Who properties

Dynamite- Lone Ranger, Man with no name, Zorro (Avengers/Invaders as well)

DDP- Drafted

I do have some First!, Valiant (Archer&Armstrong), Pacific, Aardvark-Vannaheim (Cerebus), and probably a few others as well.

I don't know about including Epic and Vertigo, as they're just "other imprints" of Marvel and DC.

I love Image Comics and Dark Horse. They are publishing some of the best comics today.
