Hyperwerks Entertainment was founded by Karl Altstaetter and Jamie Douraghy in 1997, it is mostly noted for its comic book series. The two most notable Hyperwerks projects are the Deity and Rostam series.

Since its inception, Hyperwerks has created a three-part Deity mini-series: Original Series, Darkness & Light and Revelations which was published under the Image Comics banner. Additional titles from the Altstaetter/Napton creative team are two Deity spin-offs: Catseye and Kosmic Kat as well as the fantasy genre mini-series Saint Angel.

Additionally, artist and writer Steve Buccellato created the Weasel Guy / Witchblade crossover as well as the black & white comic Weasel Guy: Road Trip.

Hyperwerks product line includes Requiem: The Deity/Catseye crossover 3 issue mini-series.

Film Roman, the animation studio behind The Simpsons and King of the Hill optioned the rights to Deity with the intent of developing the comic book into an animated primetime television series marketed to a young, hip audience.
