In 2008 a new comic book publishing company burst into the direct market. Now six months later Radical Comics continues to grow and flourish.Founded by Barry Levine, David Elliott, Jesse Berger, and Matthew Berger, Radical Comics has shown great potential by not saturating the market and by making an impact with each new release. Radical Comics has demonstrated that it’s not the typical comic book publishing company in producing lackluster titles. In fact each title that Radical Comics has fashioned has quality in print, story, and art.
Future Titles Include: City of Dust (written by Steve Niles)
The year is 2166. Since the 20th century the entire world has collapsed. Records show the Earth we know was consumed by religious wars and rebuilt from the ruins of the old world right on top of their prior foundations into a dark global metropolis. There is no religion. It was made illegal for everybody’s safety as were Fairy Tales, Science Fiction, Horror or anything else from the imagination. This is the real world and the powers that be intend to keep it that way.
Aladdin is the story of a young man whose dreams of traveling the world become a reality and he soon realizes he should be more careful what he wishes for. After his father is murdered by the dark magician Maugrah, Aladdin is tricked into opening a secret cave to find a magic lamp. Soon realizing he was fooled he quickly discovers how to use the magic lamp for his own means. But the magician is not going to give up easily and steals not only the lamp but the princess that Aladdin has fallen in love with. The only hope he has to find the magician and retrieve the lamp is by enlisting the help of a greedy, ambitious pirate called Sinbad. Aladdin can only hope that the hotheaded Sinbad will keep his word to captain his motley crew across the sea halfway around the world to darkest Africa and help him defeat the magician and the genie of the lamp.

Recently at the San Diego Comic Con, Radical Comics spotlighted a new refreshing website showcasing comics, previews, product information and merchandise purchasing. Everything has been thought of from user-friendly navigation to interactivity. It’s looking to set the standard of new website design.
