Epic Comics


Epic Comics was started in 1982 by by then-editor-in-chief Jim Shooter as a spin-off of Marvel magazine Epic Illustrated. The line focused on creator-owned titles, but occasionally published series for Marvel heroes. The first title was Dreadstar, from Jim Starlin.

The company ran steadily from its founding in 1982 until its first closure in 1994 as a casualty of the burst of the comic-buying bubble. The line was again utilized for a short time in 1995-96 to publish closing issues of Akira.

The line was revived again in 2003, focusing solely on Marvel properties. The line was again shut down in 2004, with the last release being the sole issue of Epic Anthology.
