ComixologySubmitIt’s been another outstanding year for ComiXology’s indie publishing arm Submit. With hundreds of titles published every month, there has never been a better time to publish digitally or get into reading independent digital comics. Not every great comic this year has been published by one of the big three, so in case you missed any of these great titles or would just like to find out where to start, here is our round up of the very Best of ComiXology Submit 2014.

ComixologySubmitOur round-up of the week’s must-read indie digital comics in the Best of ComiXology Submit features: Quinton Miles slacker sci-fi book Xeno Trip #6; a new take on Victorian sideshow star Joseph Merrick in Merrick: The Sensational Elephantman; Welsh Zombie book The Stiffs #1 and the truly unique Sockford from Russell Ihrig. 

What would you do if you were an ordinary guy who woke up in the bed of a green-skinned alien princess only to find you were the new king of a warlike alien planet?! Quinton Miles and the guys from QAM Comics pose just that conundrum in their latest Guided View digital comic, Xeno Trip #1, but haven’t we seen this kind of story done a hundred times before?!

After the action-packed dystopian sci-fi of their debut offering, Template, QAM Comics are taking things a little more light heartedly with their new series Xeno Trip. This slacker out-of-time sci-fi comedy starts with Sir Cody of Bennett waking in the bed of a beautiful green skinned alien princess with no idea how he got there – we’ve all been there, haven’t we?! With the first issue available on ComiXology this week we talk to writer Quinton Miles to get the inside story.
