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. 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 that was instantly mired in creative differences, petty squabbles, and executive interference. In addition to print, Hubris Comics Games Studio published holotape games, such as Wastelad and Grognak & the Ruby Ruins.
The word 'Hubris', from the ancient Greek (ὕβρις), refers to an individual's pride in their own abilities but in common use usually refers to an excess of such pride or an arrogance/belief in superiority.
Historically, U.S. Comics had been used as a form of propaganda during World War 2 and later as "red scare" during the Cold War. Famous comic book company like Atlas/Marvel and DC comics had produced comics with anti-communist messages up until the 1980s.

↑Hub 360 terminal entries Conference Terminal From: Roy Ward, Director To: Frank Marsh, Producer Date: October 17, 2077 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!
↑Hub 360 terminal entries Production terminal Shoot status October 22, 2077 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! Injury on set October 23, 2077 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.
