The Famous Five: my top five NEW comic collections released in 2015


A quick browse of my shelfs and a check on release dates and I have come up with a top five new collections for 2015. Lots of other great books are still going strong — Saga, East is West, Velvet, Southern Bastards, The Wicked and the Divine, Uber, Lazarus, Black Science, Deadly Class, Daredevil, Elephantmen, Ms Marvel are all brilliant and the amazing Hawkeye finally wrapped this year as did the epic Fables.

Batgirl is the only DC book I am still reading which is probably the fewest of their titles I have picked up in 30 plus years. I hope that changes. Over at Marvel I am picking up Daredevil and Ms Marvel and looking forward to the Karnak and Vision collections but not much else.

Anyway — here are my favourite five for 2015 →
