It may come as a bit of a surprise to many of you meatbags, but there are more comic publishers than just DC and Marvel. In fact, many publishers, that were once considered small, are now selling enough comics that they are now listed as Premier Publishers with Diamond Comic Distributors. That must mean a lot of you are reading comics from them, right?

So which publisher do you read the most comics from that is not DC or Marvel?

  1. Image, but only barely. I really only read Marvel or DC in trade anymore. My reading preferences are all over the place. Small publishers are where you find the real gems.

    Its really hard to say which but its either Dark Horse for manga & Hellboy or IDW for Transformers.

  3. Currently, I am picking up trades from IDW (Atomic Robo) and the occasional trade from DC. Nothing seems worth spending $4 a month anymore.

  4. Lately, BOOM! Studios. Not for lack of interest, there are a ton of series I would love to follow regularly from IDW, DC, Marvel and a couple others if I actually had more funds, but money is pretty tight so I’m sticking to a select few titles that I’m currently enjoying.

  5. Really wish I had got my vote in earlier, but I was too busy.

    I’m mainly reading books by Seven Seas, Yen Press, and Kodansha Comics, in that order, all of which are in the other category.
    I used to read Viz, but I’m pretty sick of pure Shonen titles these days and would rather read genres that are all but dead in US comics like Girl’s Adventure and Romance comics.

  6. I read books from a wide range of publishers including self-published and small print. However, looking over my last several books, First Second edges out everyone else.

    My “Other” is First Second, because I read so many gns and trades from libraries, and I’m almost never disappointed by what I find at :01. From all the great work by Gene Luen Yang to the Nameless City series to works by great YA prose authors and incredible biographical work, this publisher has everything I love about the modern comics industry.
