AfterShock Comics announces 100th comic title ‘Campisi: The Dragon Incident’

AfterShock Comics announces 100th comic title ‘Campisi’ after only launching in 2015.

Press Release

AfterShock Comics has announced their 100th title is on the way and it’s called Campisi: The Dragon Incident. It’s quite an achievement to reach 100 titles in an industry dominated by Marvel Comics and DC Comics, but AfterShock has done it in less than 6 years. Campisi: The Dragon Incident will release this August and is by James Patrick and Marco Locat.

“As we near the debut of our 100th title, we’ve exceeded even our own expectations,” said Editor-in-Chief Mike Marts in press materials sent to AIPT. “From collaborations with the industry’s most sought-after creatives to our boundary-breaking titles that have positioned AfterShock as a publishing company unafraid to take risks, we’ve accomplished an incredible amount in a very short time. With much more on the horizon, the best is yet to come as we continue to bring the most ‘dangerous’ stories to life.”

AfterShock has been producing some of the most compelling indie comics from creators rising up like Paul Jenkins, Donny Cates, Marguerite Bennett, Stephanie Phillips, Eliot Rahal, The Miranda Brothers, Patrick Kindlon, Olivia Cuartero-Briggs, and Leila Leiz to established creators Garth Ennis, Cullen Bunn, Steve Orlando, Frank Tieri, John Layman, Adam Glass, Tim Seeley, Brandon Thomas, Amanda Connor, and many others.

Los Angeles, CA (July 13, 2021)—AfterShock Comics, the independent publishing company that’s taken the industry by storm since its 2015 debut, announces its 100th title, CAMPISI: THE DRAGON INCIDENT, from James Patrick and Marco Locati. Patrick’s last book with AfterShock, THE KAIJU SCORE, was picked up by Sony Pictures. Slated for an August release, CAMPISI: THE DRAGON INCIDENT marks a major milestone for AfterShock, which is best known for acclaimed series such as ANIMOSITY, DARK RED, A WALK THROUGH HELL, BABYTEETH, WE LIVE and many others.

With early hits from the likes of Paul Jenkins, Donny Cates, Marguerite Bennett, Stephanie Phillips, Eliot Rahal, The Miranda Brothers, Patrick Kindlon, Olivia Cuartero-Briggs and Leila Leiz to critically-acclaimed titles from established creators Garth Ennis, Cullen Bunn, Steve Orlando, Frank Tieri, John Layman, Adam Glass, Tim Seeley, Brandon Thomas, Amanda Connor and many others, AfterShock is responsible for some of the industry’s most memorable comics of the past six years.

“As we near the debut of our 100th title, we’ve exceeded even our own expectations,” said Editor-in-Chief Mike Marts. “From collaborations with the industry’s most sought-after creatives to our boundary-breaking titles that have positioned AfterShock as a publishing company unafraid to take risks, we’ve accomplished an incredible amount in a very short time. With much more on the horizon, the best is yet to come as we continue to bring the most ‘dangerous’ stories to life.”

“Unlike comics featuring characters that have had decades to build multigenerational fanbases, AfterShock comics don’t sell themselves,” said SVP of Sales and Marketing Steve Rotterdam.  “Aside from continuing to release cutting-edge content that comic book fans love, our growth and success is directly linked to our grass roots efforts, shop-by-shop investment, ambassador program, and ancillary projects such as our Save Our Shops (S.O.S.) Pandemic Benefit Book.” AfterShock Publisher Joe Pruett added, “Our first 100 titles would not be possible without these efforts and our invaluable retail shop partners across the country, who have supported us since day one.”

AfterShock’s 100th title will coincide with the debut of Seismic Press, a new Young Adult imprint from AfterShock aimed at furthering the brand’s mission to create content for all audiences while bringing the same caliber of creative talent to tell stories for a younger demographic.
