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 best historical comic of 2015. History comes alive in comics; it's perhaps the perfect medium for recreating intimacy, detail, and a sense of place, whether recounting the rise of a tyrant, the devastation of a city, or a personal recollection of a great event.

The nominees for best historical comic are Freedom, by Seamus Heffernan (Studygroup); Shigeru Mizuki's Hitler, by Shigeru Mizuki (Drawn & Quarterly); The Lion of Rora, by Christos Gage, Ruth Fletcher Gage, and Jackie Lewis (Oni Press); March Book Two, by John Lewis, Nate Powell, and Andrew Aydin (Top Shelf); Nanjing: The Burning City, by Ethan Young (Dark Horse); Rasputin, by Alexander Grecian, Riley Rossmo, and Ivan Plascencia (Oni Press); and Showa 1953–1989: A History of Japan, by Shigeru Mizuki (Drawn & Quarterly).
