Inspired by the Greek mythological boatman of the dead, Charon Comics leads the way for the next generation of comic entertainment. The publishing house was founded by Fred Packard & Josh Valliere who plan on releasing a plethora of original, genre-specific titles over the next few years. In a world where the 80-year old comic industry has been dominated by superheroes in bright-colored spandex, companies like Charon are a breath of fresh air for those with a more diverse appetite of entertainment.
This philosophy is further strengthened by the company’s status as an independent publisher. While the indie landscape was quite bleak 15-20 years ago; the rise of e-commerce, Social Media, and Digital Publishing has ushered in a new era of Independent Publishing. Charon is able to maintain full creative control over their brands, thus ensuring a unique artistic experience for its readers.
Spearheading this ambitious initiative are Charon’s flagship properties, Skylin and Sol Survivor. Covering High-Fantasy and Space Opera/Sci Fi respectively, both properties offer very different types of entertainment but with the same attention to detail and quality.
