Founded by Ben Dunn in 1984, Antarctic Press has produced over 850 titles with a total circulation of over 5 million. Among its titles are some of the most respected and longest-running independent comic series.
Its earliest titles were Mangazine and Extremely Silly Comics.
Many now-established names have started at Antarctic, with most continuing to work there including Brian Denham, Ben Dunn, Eisner-nominated Rod Espinosa, Guru eFX, Joseph Wight and Chris Bunting.
The company also produces a wide range of 'how to' and 'you can' comics, instructing on many areas of comic book creation and craft.
Many of Antarctic's staple characters from titles including Warrior Nun Areala, Ninja High School, Gold Digger, The Courageous Princess, and Dragons Arms, came together in the 2005 How to Break into Comics, which also featured their creators in the narrative.
In April 2006, popular title Warrior Nun was re-launched as Warrior Nun Lazarus and included CGI coloring.
