Best Comic Books of 2015

Another year of comics!

While the main priority of the website is to keep you up-to-date with all things movies, we also love to dabble at those funny books here and there. So starting from the lowest to the highest, here are our picks for the BEST COMICS OF 2015! (echoes "teen-teen-teeeen")

5) The Fade Out

Ed Brubaker (W), Sean Phillips (A)

A noir revolving around a failing screenwriter stuck in the mysterious murder investigation of a young starlet. From the masterminds behind "Scene of the Crime", comes yet another crime-thriller that you'll want to pick up. 

4) Nimona

Noelle Stevenson (W)

Now, at the number 4 spot, I do have two different comics. But for good reason!

The first, is a sci-fi/fantasy about a shapeshifting apprentice who helps a super-villain take down an even more sinister organization. A graphic novel with fantastic characters that may have had its run early on as a web-series, but with it's trade printing in 2015, it's one that you definitely need to check out. 

Did I mention it's also being adapted by Fox Animation?

Last Man

Bastien Vives (W), Balak (A)

Bastien Vives (W), Balak (A)

A french graphic novel pairing the brute stranger, Richard Aldana, and the high-spirited boy, Adrian Velba, as they battle their way to the top of a gladiatorial tournament. 

Volume 3 continues to expand the background of these characters as well as depicting some of the best drawn action in comics of 2015. 

3) Roller Girl

Now, this may be considered a "children's book", but don't let that fool you. Any one within its intended age demographic will surely love this book about a roller derby middle schooler. It's those who are older, however, that will look back on its themes of friendship and growing up that will relate to it the most. 

2) Descender

Jeff Lemire (W), Dustin Nguyen (A)

Jeff Lemire (W), Dustin Nguyen (A)

After giving us an immersive science fiction world in "Trillium" , Jeff Lemire returns with his intense space opera of a young robot trying to survive in space. It's gripping, heart-warming, and full of secrets behind characters who may not be who they say they are. 

Again, another one that has been picked up for a feature film adaptation. 

1) Paper Girls

Brian K. Vaughan (W), Cliff Chiang (A), Matt Wilson (A)

Brian K. Vaughan (W), Cliff Chiang (A), Matt Wilson (A)

Brian K. Vaughan has done it again. Most of us are already addicted to "Saga", but here Vaughan gives us another monthly addiction with this mysterious young adult adventure. Taking place in the late '80s, we follow a group of newspaper delivery girls who uncover a story that will change their lives forever. But will they survive to tell it?
