Boom! Studios

The company that was founded in 2005 by Ross Richie is one that should be on your radar. Any comic book enthusiast will tell you about hours of fun reading adaptations of Adventure Time.

Kodansha Comics

Attack on Titan created huge waves among readers. Creators like Scott Snyder, Gail Simone & Cameron Stewart are out there preparing an entire anthological series. Kodansha although a fairly new publication house (founded in 2008), but they are definitely headed to become the next big thing. Do keep a look-out for these publishers.

Comic book publishers

Udon Entertainment

If you are a comic book lover, and haven’t read anything by Udon Entertainment, you are missing out on something. They not only feature new characters from Street Fighter V but also feature three new short stories about Rashid butting heads with the classic World Warriors.

Valiant Entertainment

One of the oldest publications on this list, this long-standing publishing house is now rolling out the solo series, Faith that features a superhero who is a fangirl-turned-hero. The previous comics under this banner, including Squirrel Girl and Batgirl, have been very successful. There is no reason why this one won’t match the popularity of its predecessors.

Comic book publishers

Aftershock Comics

The youngest publishing house on the list, launched just last year (2015), is already in league with the big names in the comics industry due to their originality.
