YOUR GUIDE TO ALL THE GOODS ON THE KLC PRESS SUBSTACK!
WELCOME TO KLC PRESS!
This post will be updated as new comics and shows are dropped, and you’ll always be able to find it pinned right here, to the front page of KLCPRESS.COM!
KLC was founded by DONNY CATES (Thanos, Thor, Venom, God Country), RYAN STEGMAN (Venom, Absolute Carnage, King in Black), and JOHN J. HILL (Crossover, Vanish), and features work by ETHAN S. PARKER, GRIFFIN SHERIDAN, KENNY PORTER, TYRELL CANNON, and more! This is our playground for developing creator-owned comics, publishing, and entertainment… Unshackled from the confines of big corporations.
Here at KLC PRESS, we’re publishing comics that break down the walls between the most exciting genres in the industry. With VANISH, a world of young-adult wizardry meets superheroes and heavy metal. THE SCHLUB finds the sweet spot between classic comic book adventure and bizarre oddball comedy. The upcoming “PROJECT 8” will take our imprint into new territory of horror and fantasy.
Since we launched this Substack in August 2021, we've even expanded into new areas like comics education! Through our ongoing series STEGMAN SPEAKS, Ryan Stegman shows subscribers how he works his artistic magic. Alongside this, we also publish regular podcasts and livestreams, through which we raffle off original pieces of art to those who enter the drawings in the comments!
Take a look at the guide below for the full tour, and make sure to hit the SUBSCRIBE button also below to gain access to all of the comics, instructional videos, and STEGWORLD SHOP offers that we have behind our subscriber-exclusive paywall! Thanks for helping support us to make more great comics!
KLC PRESS' FLAGSHIP SERIES. From DONNY CATES, RYAN STEGMAN, SONIA OBACK, J.P. MAYER, and JOHN J. HILL comes an all-new, truly brutal take on the classic hero's quest!
Oliver Harrison was a mythical hero who slayed the greatest threat to his realm before even hitting puberty. But that was then.
As an adult, Oliver leads an average cookie-cutter suburban life—aside from the fact that he's mentally unstable, massively paranoid, smokes like a chimney, and gets blackout drunk every night to hide from his horrific nightmares. Will the arrival of a superhero team called the Prestige prove the madness isn’t all in Oliver’s head? And what about all the epic fantasy crap from his childhood?
Join us for a brutal as hell tale of magical worlds, gifted youth, evil sorcerers, superheroes, war, blood, guts, and death that punches you right in the face!
