The Company

Our debut title, Dead@17 was an instant hit and was noted as a top 10 Hot Comic in Wizard Magazine.

Viper has published over 100 comic books and 45 graphic novels. Viper has had four graphic novels recommended by the American Library Association, The Middleman (TV show on ABC Family), Daisy Kutter, Emily Edison, and Oddly Normal.
