about us

Venture Comics, a new comic book company based in Southeast Missouri, began in late 2008 when long time comic fans Charles Winkle and George Anderson began discussing the concept of creating their own comics. After discussing a couple of ideas, the duo began work on their first book. Set to be released in 2009, the first Venture Comics publication will give comic book fans everywhere a new alternative.

Anderson and Winkle have been reading comic books since childhood. In middle school, the duo, along with a couple of friends, made their first comic book, based on the Detective Comics character Batman, adding a few original ideas. The black-and-white book was quickly distributed among their peers and, while crude in creation, became an immediate hit among fellow classmates.

Although popular, Anderson and Winkle gave little thought to the idea of starting a business at such a young age, and as time went on, the comics vanished.

In late 2008, Anderson contacted Winkle with ideas for original creations. Excited by his colleagues proposal, Winkle quickly began work on the first publication's script. In April 2009, the script was finalized and artwork began.

Wednesday, September 2, 2009 - VC discussed on ComicBookMovie.com
A friend and fan of Venture Comics, known around the web as WerewolfByNight, recently posted a little info about us on his ComicBookMovie.com fansite. We read the article and were blown away. Below is an excerpt from the article...

"So, I was just hit with the sudden urge to give a shout out to some of my friends at 'Venture Comics'. Haven't heard of them? Well, here goes... Venture Comics is a company created and managed by two long-time comic fans (and all around good guys) George Anderson and Charles Winkle. Now, I've known these guys for a while, and they're always kicking around some great ideas--and it seems like one day, they just got fed up with sitting around and letting those ideas go to waste...so they started Venture Comics. As of now, they only have one title, and it's in the middle stages of production. This title, as you may have guessed by the name of the article, is 'Johnny Superhero.'"

Click here to read the article in its entirety, including more info about Johnny Superhero, and show VC a little love around the web. We're sure WerewolfByNight would love to get some feedback on his article as well.

Sunday, August 30, 2009 - Site recoded!
We worked late into the night last night/this morning, redoing the site in a more "browser friendly" code as opposed to full-blown Flash.

Wednesday, June 3, 2009 - New link added!
Sorry for the delay in updates guys, I've been busy. Today, I bring you an update on the comic. After having issues with our scanner and inking tools, we decided to get a Wacom Graphire 4 Pen Tablet. It came in on Monday and we have been steadily working to get the learning curve out of the way. Things are starting to look good. We have revised the layout on page 1 and have been working to get the page done. We have finished the top panel, color and all, and are happy with the results.
Remember: Johnny Superhero is coming this summer.
Also, we added a new link to our pals from Grim Furry Tales. Their new book, DEAD FUTURE, is planned for an October release so show some love this Halloween!
