Awesome, nice to see this. One big recommendation for people to read from one of these companies would be Saga, from Image. Image also made the excellent Paper Girls, Man-Eaters, and Matt Wagner's Mage, which are all recently over, and Sex Criminal, which is still going. Dark Horse is publishing Wagner's Grendel: Devil's Odyssey, and also does Plants Vs Zombies. IDW is publishing the new volume of Usagi Yojimbo, one of the longest running comics by one creator, and for some reason does Star Wars Adventures, the kids' SW comic.
