2018 Best of the Year Nominees – Dark Horse Comics

Next week, Monkeys Fighting Robots will be announcing our awards for Best Cover and Best Single Issue of 2018; here are your nominees from Dark Horse.

Nominations were collected from Dark Horse Comics as well as the MFR team. Black Hammer, the publisher’s smash hit franchise from Jeff Lemire and his various collaborators, received three nominations (including the one for its spinoff series, Doctor Star). Last month, it was announced that the series received a major film and TV deal from Legendary Entertainment.

We’d like to offer a special thank you to Dark Horse for participating; each of these choices are award-worthy. Readers: please be sure to pick up these comics if you haven’t already!
