As we close in on the top 10 for Indie and Small Press Comic of the Year 2018 we have a motley bunch of books that include skeletal villains, sweary superheros, 60s spaceships, fantasy adventures, flawed writers, bawdy tales and giant space cathedrals!

An evil skull face villain attempting to take over the universe may sound like a familiar tale from Saturday morning cartoons of our youth, but Steve Gregson and Matt Simmons’В Bastard Galaxia takes some of the more ludicrous ideas from those cartoons and milks them for everything they’re worth in this hilarious webcomic, which is now collected into an epic trade.
