The Wednesday Waffle: Issue Fifteen - The Saucer Awards 2018!!!!!!!!!!!

We asked you, our loyal customers, to tell us what you thought were the best comics of 2018. Take a seat, grab your beverage of choice, and join us for the results of the 2018 Saucer Awards...

You, our loyal and valued customers were invited to vote for who you considered to be the best Ongoing Series, the best Limited Series, the best Character, the best Writer, Artist, Major Publisher, and Minor Publisher was in 2018.

Well, you have spoken, and these are the results.

Drum roll please...

Ladies and Gentlemen...

The 2018 Saucer Award for best "Minor Publisher"

We defined "Minor Publisher" as anyone who wasn't Marvel, DC, Image, or Dark Horse. You voted and decided the following...

In third place we have Vault. The company that gave us the sublime Heathen, the story of a gay Viking girl and her attempts to make her way in the world. Fearscape, perhaps the most meta narrative we've ever read in comics and Submerged, a gloriously strange horror story.

Also the only publisher whose boss has actually 'phoned us to find out what we and our customers think about their comics. We like Vault. To date we haven't read a bad book from them and we absolutely urge you to check out their stuff.

The runner up in this category was Boom! To be fair to the rest of the publishing world we're including Boom!, BoomBox and KaBoom, in this entry, which means we're mashing up the people who brought you new Firefly comics as well as the sports comics Fence, Slam! and Dodge City. There's nothing these folk have done that we didn't like in 2018. If we're honest we would have thought they were a shoe in for the title, were it not for the independent juggernaut that is the company that narrowly took the crown.

Ladies and Gentlemen, the winners of the Saucer Award for "Best Minor Publisher 2018" goes to Aftershock - the publisher responsible for Animosity, Dark Ark, Pestilence, A Walk through Hell, Jimmy's Bastards and so much other amazing work.
