While primarily a publishing house, Hubris Comics had begun to expand into radio, television and toys. The Silver Shroud and Grognak the Barbarian were two of its most popular properties.Fallout 4 loading screens

Hubris Comics is a location in the Commonwealth in 2287, located just west of Swan's Pond.

BackgroundEdit

A local store and office of Hubris Comics, publishers of classic graphic novels before the Great War. The location also served as office space for production staff and as a television studio.[1]


LayoutEdit

The building is small with only four floors. The ground floor features the shop, progressing to offices on the second and third floors, and a television studio on the fourth floor. The entire building is infested by feral ghouls, with a glowing one on the top floor. A console is available on the top floor that allows the player character to control stage lights for the Silver Shroud set and also play the Silver Shroud theme over the system speakers.

Notable lootEdit

First floorEdit

  • Scavenger's lead - Note found just outside, on the corpse of a scavenger.
  • Grognak's axe - In an Advanced locked display case, behind the front desk. It can also be opened by hacking the nearby Advanced terminal.
  • Unstoppables issue #5 - On the shop counter next to the register, opposite Grognak's axe in the display case.
  • Hubris Comics storeroom key - Inside the righthand side cash register on the counter. It opens the ground floor storeroom, the wall safe behind the counter and a room on the third floor.
  • Scavenger's note (non-quest version) - On a dead scavenger inside the restroom.
  • Gametitle-FO4 CC A variety of graphic t-shirts and the manager's note in a wooden crate in the storage room.

Second floorEdit

  • Silver Shroud photo - Inside an office to the right of the top of the stairs from the first floor. Located in a broken display case, next to a bat and baseball.
  • Hubris Comics office key - In a corner room, in the desk with the manager's terminal. Another copy can be found underneath a desk by the manager's door.
  • Scavenger's list - On a corpse located through a hole in the wall, directly to the right after coming up the first flight of stairs, and through the doorway. It is under one of the two sets of stairs which lead to the third floor.

Codsworth Shop floor "Looking for the next issue of Grognak, sir/mum?"

Curie Shop floor "The human preoccupation with fiction is a mystery to me."
Top floor studio "A television studio. We are supposed to get autographs, yes?"
Danse Shop floor "I don't understand the logic in reading these illustrated manuscripts. The plots are ludicrous."

AppearancesEdit

This Hubris Comics appears only in Fallout 4.

Behind the scenesEdit

Hubris Comics is in the same location in Boston as the famous Newbury Comics original, flagship location, at 332 Newbury St. This can be confirmed, as an intact street sign for Newbury Street can be seen very close to the entrance. Also, the store entrance is below street level, just as the entrance to Newbury Comics is.
