Next week, Monkeys Fighting Robots will be announcing our awards for Best Cover and Best Single Issue of 2018; here are your nominees from AfterShock Comics.
Nominations were collected from AfterShock Comics as well as the MFR team. AfterShock has been making a name for themselves in the indie publishing game after only opening shop in 2015, offering more and more high quality content from top tier creators. Hot Lunch Special, which is up for both our Best Cover AND Best Single Issue awards, has been a favorite among comic creators this year.
We’d like to offer a special thank you to AfterShock for participating; each of these choices are award-worthy. Readers: please be sure to pick up these comics if you haven’t already!
