Publishing quality prints at quality prices.— Hubris Comics Publishing slogan

Hubris Comics Publishing, often shortened to simply Hubris Comics, was a pre-War printed entertainment company founded in 2021.[1] It was a branch of Hubris Publishing and headquartered in Washington, D.C.[1]

BackgroundEdit

While most notable for its Grognak the Barbarian series, Hubris Comics has produced various comic book series as well expanding into other projects and media. While primarily a publishing house, Hubris Comics had begun to expand into radio, television, toys, and games. The Silver Shroud and Grognak the Barbarian were two of its most popular properties.[2] The Silver Shroud franchise was particularly popular in Boston, thanks to the serialized radio drama broadcast by Galaxy News Radio. Hubris attempted to broaden its appeal with a television series shortly before the war that was instantly mired in creative differences, petty squabbles, and executive interference.[3] In addition to print, Hubris Comics Games Studio published holotape games, such as Wastelad and Grognak & the Ruby Ruins.

Hubris Comics also collaborated with several other companies, such as Vault-Tec Corporation to include Vault Boy in their Hell's Chain Gang series and the Underground Life series, and produced propaganda comics for the U.S. government, like Tales from the Front.[1] Hubris Comics partnered with Don't Be Bored Games Company to produce a UnStoppables ShiNdig, which allowed up to five participants to take on the roles of the Unstoppables heroes.

Hubris Comics partnered with United States Space Administration for the Captain Cosmos televised series. After the incident at ArcJet Systems and the setbacks to the Mars Shot Project, the USSA intended to use sponsorship of the show to generate "good press." Additionally, the USSA provided Hubris Comics with equipment, such as the new Captain Cosmos space suit and the CC-00 power armor, as well as on-site technicians to assist during filming. [4] Due to the "star-struck" USSA technicians fraternizing with the cast rather than performing safety checks on the Cosmic cannon "prop" weapon, Johnny Morton, a guest star, was injured when the weapon discharged live ammunition during filming.[5]

    I met with General Tucker like you asked. They were excited to have their new equipment featured in the season finale, and even offered to have some technicians on-site during the shoot. It's going to save us a bundle on production costs!
    He said they need all the good press they can get after that whole incident at ArcJet with the reporter, and if this helps get the Mars Shot project back on track they'll buy up all of our commercial airtime! I smell a bonus in the air for both of us. Come down and have a drink with me to celebrate!

    Things are going pretty good so far, and we're on schedule to wrap shooting the season finale. Although, these technicians the USSA sent over are star-struck. They spend more time chatting up Captain Cosmos and playing with Jangles than they do with safety training. We only have 2 days left to shoot and haven't even gone over the weapon prop they brought yet!

    I can't believe it, the weapon the USSA delivered to us wasn't a prop, it was a live weapon! Our guest star Johnny Morton was wounded pretty bad during one of the fight scenes a few minutes ago. People are freaking out, and they're taking him upstairs to wait for the paramedics. We were told to put Carl into a space suit and try to shoot the rest of Johnny's scenes with him as a stand-in. Yikes.
