We know who the big 2 are (Marvel and DC just in case some poor slob didn't know). Who is #3?

Valiant or Image.

Right now, I have to say Image. Image has so many great books going right now like East of West, Saga, Walking Dead, Invincible, Lazarus and Zero.

I thought Image also. Then I saw some people saying Valiant was making the Big 2 turn into the big 3 (or something along those lines I read it this morning before work). I looked up Valiant this morning and they don't have jack for comics (only 10 comics coming out). Image has 18 coming out just on November 6 (Although I only care about 2 series from Image).

@manchine: Valiant has only been back in business for about 15 months. Their books are very high quality they just don't have the sheer numbers that Image puts out monthly.

Ahhh That makes sense. I didn't realize they went out of business. Although because of them talking about it I have decided to pick up one of the comics.

Valiant has gone out of business two or three times, I think. But has been rebooted with each new owner.

Image is 3 in quality/quantity. With time Valiant can make #4.

Either image or dark horse

#18 Posted by BattheMan008 (308 posts) - - Show Bio

Image, then IDW, Dark Horse, and Valiant. Based on sales, I believe.

X-O Manowar and Possible Unity.

I think this is pretty much the top 5 outside of the big 2. Ascending Order:

  1. Image (Saga, The Walking Dead, Invincible, Thief of Thieves, Spawn, Witchblade)
  2. Valiant (X-O Manowar, Bloodshot, Harbinger, Archer & Armstrong, Shadowman, Quantum and Woody)
  3. Vertigo (Fables, The Sandman, Transmetropolitan, 100 Bullets, American Vampire)
  4. Boom Studios (Adventure Time, Bravest Warriors, Fanboys vs Zombies)
  5. Dynamite (Red Sonja, Green Hornet, The Boys, Vampirella, The Spider)
