2018 Best of the Year Nominees – Valiant Comics

- Advertisement -

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

Nominations were collected from Valiant Comics as well as the MFR team. Bloodshot Salvation#7 warrants a shout-out in particular. The issue broke new ground by plunging the reader into total darkness and telling almost an entire story in narration. It was a wonderful display of the range and possibilities of comic books.

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