Hubris Comics Publishing was a pre-War company which had been producing printed entertainment since 2021.[1] It was a branch of Hubris Publishing and headquartered in Washington, D.C.[1]


While most notable for its Grognak the Barbarian series, Hubris Comics has produced various comic book series as well expanding into other projects. While primarily a publishing house, Hubris Comics had begun to expand into radio, television and toys. 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 that was instantly mired in creative differences, petty squabbles, and executive interference.[3]

Hubris Comics also made several sponsorship deals with 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]

Behind the scenes

The word 'Hubris', from the ancient Greek, 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.
