Publishing Quality Prints at Quality Prices.— Slogan, Hubris Comics Publishing

Hubris Comics was a pre-War entertainment company founded in 2021.[4] It was a subsidiary of Hubris Publishing and headquartered in Washington, D.C.[4]

Background

Hubris Comics has produced various comic book series, such as Grognak the Barbarian, as well as expanding into other projects and media such as radio, television, toys and games. The Silver Shroud and Grognak the Barbarian were two of its most popular properties.[5] 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 shortly before the war that was instantly mired in creative differences, petty squabbles and executive interference.[6]

In addition to print, Hubris Comics Games Studio, founded in 2062,[7] published holotape games, such as Wastelad and Grognak & the Ruby Ruins. The Hubris Comics subsidiary also produced software, beginning with the project entitled Reign of Grelok, which was in its beta stages before the Great War.[8]

Hubris Comics also collaborated with several 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.[4] Hubris Comics partnered with Don't Be Bored Games Company to produce a Unstoppables Shindig board game, which allowed up to five participants to take on the roles of the Unstoppables heroes.

Publications

Best known for their series Grognak the Barbarian, Hubris Comics Publishing produced several lines of comic books starting with their founding in 2021. The fantasy, sword-and-sandal adventures of Grognak sold alongside titles including noir vigilante series Silver Shroud and U.S. propaganda comic Tales from the Front.

As the brand grew, they broadened the scope of their fictional realms. Hubris Publishing expanded to bring their storytelling to radio, television, branded toys, and holotape games. They also collaborated with companies such as Vault-Tec, receiving permission to use branded mascots as characters in their fiction. Despite the popularity of their other titles, Grognak continually dominated the market for all forms of media.

After the War
Though not as useful as a nuclear shelter or a weaponized industrial laser, the products of Hubris Comics play a vital role across the wastelands. They provide escape from the grueling, half-boring/half-terrifying days of life after the War. Most issues of their comics and games are partially destroyed, but that stops nobody from enjoying them as fully as possible, filling gaps in the story from their own imagination. The few intact copies of any comic, but especially Grognak are treasures to command a hefty price... or a concerted attempt at its theft.

Hubris Comics’ headquarters in the Commonwealth still stands intact, though feral ghouls and radroaches lurk in its darkened corners. Scavengers will find no high-tech weapons or supply caches there but may well emerge carrying a pop culture relic worth a lifetime of luxury.
