Back in the late part of 2012, New Jersey based comic artists and small press publishers Dave Ryan and Joe Martino started discussing merging Joe’s JGM Comics and Dave’s Red Anvil. Between the two of them, they have a combined experience of over 35 years of producing comics and publishing experience for a wide audience.
During the course of their discussions, they tried to come up with a company name that both grabbed and inspired but nothing really grabbed or inspired them! Ultimately, it finally dawned on them that they already had a great name - in Red Anvil.
And thus, Red Anvil Comics was born. One of the label's major goals is to make not just “great comics” but to make great comics that either one of the founders would spend their own money to purchase in stores if they weren't already the creators.
With this goal in mind, the company’s initial line up consists of Owlgirls, The Mighty Titan, War of the Independents and Cyberine Corps. There are also additional titles in production which will be announced as they each near their completion dates.
