ComicAttack.net’s Best of 2015 Fan Poll Results!

1450947373013 (1)

The fans have voted and the top five in each category are all in for the Best of 2015 Fan Poll! It was an intense voting process only made better by the fan participation and sheer number of nominees submitted for this year’s poll. It was a fantastic variety of talent from across the comic industry with some familiar names along with some new additions we didn’t see last year!

The breakout category was “Biggest Surprise Good Read” which consisted of titles from several different genres of comics and the most collection of votes. There were several surprises to come out in some categories and we even have a new number one for “Best Publisher” which according to several fans, is very well deserved. Also, it’s looking like another great year for creator owned projects just from the sheer number of submissions that came through. Once again proving that it’s not all metahumans and mutants from the Big Two that comic fans are craving either!

    The lack of variety in the manga category makes me sad. Clearly I’m not doing my job well enough.
    But I am REALLY happy to see Stjepan Sejic everywhere. Also ALL THE LADIES.
