As we continue of rundown of the best indie and small press comics of the year we are blasted into space, get caught up in an unlikely election and meet a giant rabbit.

It’s been another amazing year for independent and small press comics, and so picking our favourites from the year has not been an easy task. It has meant missing out some big hitters from previous years line-ups, but this is a reflection of the calibre and quality of books we have discovered this year, many of which were from first time creators dipping their toe in the world of self publishing for the first time!

When told her of these Tillie had this to say… “So pleased that On A Sunbeam could win this award. I’m surprised because OAS is such a luxury for me – I make this comic solely because I enjoy doing it, and I’m honored that people enjoy it along with me.”

1. On A Sunbeam
2. Last Driver
3. Cognition

Just as we do with our Digital Comic of the Year award, we are going to leave it up to you to pick a winner.
