Orang Utan Comics is one of the UK’s leading independent comics publishers. Founded in 2007 by Ian Sharman and Peter Rogers, it hit the UK comics scene running with the launch of Eleventh Hour, an anthology title which picked up an Eagle Award nomination for Favourite Black & White British Comic Book after its initial two issues.
Since then Orang Utan Comics has gone on to release several popular series, including Alpha Gods, FTL, Particle Fiction, Shrapnel: Case Files and the Comixology Comixologist’s Choice Award winning Hypergirl. It has also worked with Matt Dyson and Mike Georgiou to produce trade paperback collections of their comics, Moo & Keo and Elemental Micah.
Orang Utan Comics work closely with AAM/Markosia, who handle most of their digital distribution, and have also developed a number of titles that have been or will be published by them, including Eleventh Hour, Hero: 9 to 5, Hypergirl and the forthcoming Intergalactic Adventures of Zakk Ridley and Shrapnel: Case Files.
