Poll | Comic Book Underground’s Favorite Publishers

The poll Question I posed to the members of my Facebook group The Comic Book Underground last week:

The majority of your monthly and/or trade paperback reads come from which of the following publisher?

With only 21 participating votes, the results were:

DC_Logo_RGB_031816

DC Comics (Including the Vertigo imprint)

The resurgent #2 publisher in the market with 8 total votes, which ties them with the #3 publisher.

88b87-25506imagecomics_logo-md

Image Comics (including the Top Cow, ShadowLine & SkyBound imprints)

The #3 publisher took the early lead in the poll (a charge led by yours truly, of course), but ultimately tied with the house of DC: Rebirth with 8 total votes also.

Marvel Comics (including the Icon & MAX imprints)

The currently battle-tested #1 publisher takes the third spot with only 4 total votes, which is a surprise because 12, 18, 24 months ago this would not have been the case. If the CBU is but a tiny microcosm of current fandom, then it appears Marvel has fallen from grace a bit.

Valiant Entertainment

Arguably “the best” non-premier publisher under Diamond’s distribution umbrella, the house of Harbingers brings up the rear at the fourth spot with merely one vote. However, it beat out AfterShock, Boom! Dark Horse (my current #2 personally), Dynamite, IDW and Other, which all had zero votes, so there’s that at least.
