COMICS2MOVIES was created through sheer love and passion for comics and film alike.
COMICS2MOVIES was born in 2007 as a collectable business, in conjunction with some of Australia’s finest artists we created a series of collectable limited-edition prints. these prints were based on everyone’s favourite characters from comic books to films and even fan favourite TV shows.
Travelling the world doing comics conventions fuelled our love for comics and in 2013 COMICS2MOVIES turned its attention to the creation of its own comics and graphic novels with its first series the Xtreme Champion Tournament (XCT), which became Australia’s #1 selling independent comic book series. After the success of XCT in 2018 COMICS2MOVIES launched its second series Terralympus and then in 2020 became a full-time publisher producing series Talos of Sparta, The 13th Labour and teamed up with actor Dan Feuerriegel to create the dystopian cyberpunk detective series Fractured Shards.
COMICS2MOVIES main focus is to create new worlds & universes through interaction, inclusivity & ownership. Helping creators grow, fast-tracking their development and producing high-quality stories and products for readers of all ages.
As a Publisher, we love comics and it’s our goal to help you fall in love with them too!
