2016 was a great year for independent comic books and while some long running series like Walking Dead and Saga have had great issues, a lot of newer books stepped up and came to play. Here are my top 5 comic books for 2016 from independent publishers. Overall, these books might not be the best critically, artistically or have the best writing, but they are the books I enjoyed the most and the ones I would want to share with my friends.
