The Spider

Fatale is my favorite at the moment. I've been falling of the Saga bandwagon slowly as the series wears on. Really want to start up reading X-O Manowar but just waiting for a Comixology sale.

CHEW needs moar votes.

#4 Posted by Renchamp (2397 posts) - - Show Bio

Went with the Walking Dead, but I love that K4tz got Five Weapons in there. More people should read it.

This is tough. Both Chew and The Walking Dead are fantastic titles. I ultimately went with The Walking Dead though.

#6 Edited by TDK_1997 (14895 posts) - - Show Bio

Probably Saga.

Prophet. Beyond amazing.

#8 Posted by longbowhunter (7083 posts) - - Show Bio

Picked Saga, Witch Doctor is nipping at it's heels though.

I picked Saga, but I would've had a harder time of it if Bloodshot or Shadowman were options.

Invincible! My favorite ongoing series.

I'm an Invincipal for life.

#11 Posted by ArturoCalaKayVee (11591 posts) - - Show Bio

I put Invincible because I recently started the series. But there are a lot of great comics listed on there. Some I want to start pulling.

#12 Posted by yo_yo_fun (643 posts) - - Show Bio

Fatale!

#13 Posted by capuga (43 posts) - - Show Bio

Invincible is the best book on the stands. Runners up on that list would be The Walking Dead, Luther Strode, Saga, and Chew.

Um, how is Fatale not on this list? Just saying.

#16 Posted by verbaleuan (40 posts) - - Show Bio

Elephantmen

#17 Edited by kennybaese (1114 posts) - - Show Bio

Those of you not voting for Chew are doing it wrong.

#18 Edited by Xwraith (18174 posts) - - Show Bio

I really wish I could vote for both Star Wars and TMNT, but I'll go with Star Wars.

Fred Perry's GOLD DIGGER

#20 Posted by kantrip (144 posts) - - Show Bio

I voted Saga, but I'm also seriously hooked on The Massive right now as well. That book deserves a lot of love for doing post-apocalypse without resorting to a Mad Max or Zombies gimmick.

#21 Edited by YourNeighborhoodComicGeek (20245 posts) - - Show Bio

Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles

Invincible isn't "indie" for me anymore. If it was it would be my number 1 though.

#22 Edited by Mr. Kamikaze (526 posts) - - Show Bio

X-O Manowar counts as an indie?

Then I chose other, going with Archer & Armstrong. Love that book, so great!

Human error, that's how. I had it as part of the final draft of the list but must have accidentally not included it in the final post. Regardless, you can still vote other and state what it is you voted for. I'll be counting those.

Meh, anything non-Marvel/DC is being deemed "indie" for this.

@k4tzm4n: Ah...then I should have voted for Invincible. Since Invincible is published by Image, I think Image (as well as Dark Horse) are popular and have enough sales to not be independent. IDW is on the thin line of independent comics. They have popular characters/franchises such as Transformers, G.I. Joe, and Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles, but they seem to not sell as much.

@k4tzm4n: Yeah I know what you mean. Sorting out all the comic books that have below _____ amount of sales and other categories would take a while to sort. So which is your favorite indie comic book currently?

#28 Posted by MadeinBangladesh (6885 posts) - - Show Bio

CLONE!!!! It's the most Underrated book in the pool.

#29 Edited by Ellie_Knightfall (4819 posts) - - Show Bio

Saga

I've been pondering picking up the first trade of this book. What would you compare it to in tone and content?

#32 Edited by Mucklefluga (2563 posts) - - Show Bio

I think i love SAGA the most out of that, THE WALKING DEAD and CHEW, but CHEW probably doesn't have a lot of votes so i'll pick that.

I really love Glory. :'[

I was torn between TMNT/X-O/Five Weapons/Strode. Ultimately, X-O earned my vote -- wasn't an easy choice, though.

Without question, my favorite non-big-two comic is Saga. However, The Manhattan Projects or Fatale really should have at least been options over stuff like East of West, which is wonderful so far but has only released a single issue. How can that be anyone's favorite?

#36 Posted by inferiorego (24588 posts) - - Show Bio

These books aren't indie enough. I only read comics drawn on notebook paper featuring characters only used once.

#37 Posted by Cavemold (1682 posts) - - Show Bio

I went XO as well east of west only has one issue out.saga has been good but not great.

#38 Edited by Dark_Guyver (2315 posts) - - Show Bio

TMMT! One of my favorites any any comic publisher.

#39 Edited by JairamGanpat (952 posts) - - Show Bio

Other: Nowhere Men. It's better than everything you're reading and you've never even heard of it.

#40 Edited by Strider92 (16462 posts) - - Show Bio

Harbinger!!!!!!

#41 Edited by thenexusrebound (245 posts) - - Show Bio

Other: Carbon Grey. It is pretty awesome and I am a sucker for dieselpunk story lines.

#42 Posted by SmashBrawler (5732 posts) - - Show Bio

Invincible for sure.

#43 Posted by akbogert (3222 posts) - - Show Bio

I'm not voting because I haven't actually read enough indie titles to have formed a preference (only one issue each of a handful mentioned here, though for what it's worth Fatale is probably the number one indie title I am actually planning to get into when money makes it possible).

However I just read the first trade of Morning Glories and was kind of blown away by it, so that might get my vote for now if I were voting.

Judge Dredd is the only one I'm reading so I just voted for that.

Tall Tales From The Badlands... I may be a little biased, though.

Notebook paper? That's so mainstream.
