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!

Growing up as a geek in the 1980s there was nothing cooler that Ian Livingstone and Steve Jackson’s Fighting Fantasy – a series of role-playing books that would see you making choices flicking between different chapters in the book. With the franchise celebrating it’s 35th birthday this year, what better time than to turn one of it’s most infamous titles Freeway Fighter into an all-action comic book series. We catch up with writer Andi Ewington and buckle up for a high octane¬†thrill ride!
