2015 was an outstanding year for comics; a year of great books by amazing talents, both new and established. But what were the highlights? We're asking you to pick the best comics, creators, and more in 2015.

This poll is your chance to vote for the best first issue published in 2015. First issues are some of the hardest comics to write, but great first issues really shine.

For each poll we asked readers on Twitter to help us compile a list of nominees, and we whittled that down to a short-list with the help of our expert panel --- the ComicsAlliance writers and editors. Now it's up to you to vote for the winners --- and share the poll with everyone you know to help give your favorites a boost.

The nominees for Best First Issue are Archie #1, by Mark Waid, Fiona Staples et al (Archie); Fresh Romance #1, by Sarah Kuhn, Kate Leth, Sarah Vaughn, Arielle Jovellanos, Sally Jane Thompson, Sarah Winifred Searle et al (Rosy Press); Island #1, by Brandon Graham, Emma Rios, and Ludroe (Image); Jem And The Holograms #1, by Kelly Thompson, Sophie Campbell et al (IDW); Kaptara #1, by Chip Zdarsky and Kagan McLeod (Image); Monstress #1, by Marjorie Liu and Sana Takeda (Image); Omega Men #1, by Tom King, Barnaby Bagenda et al (DC); Paper Girls #1, by Brian K Vaughan, Cliff Chiang et al (Image); Prez #1, by Mark Russell, Ben Caldwell et al (DC); Unbeatable Squirrel Girl volume 1 #1, by Ryan North, Erica Henderson et al (Marvel); and Vision #1, by Tom King, Gabriel Hernandez Walta et al (Marvel).
