Radio Comix is an alternative comic book publishing company based in San Antonio, Texas, United States. Founded in 1996 by former Antarctic Press employees Elin Winkler-Suarez and Pat Duke, Radio Comix has published hundreds of comics from many genres, from both American-created and translated Japanese manga to anthropomorphic to adults-only books under their Sin Factory imprint. Their Furrlough title is the longest-running comic anthology in the U.S.

History[edit]

Radio Comix was formed in late 1996, shortly after a change in publishing strategy at Antarctic Press. Looking to cut costs and focus more on more mainstream properties, Antarctic discontinued publishing all translated manga, anthropomorphic and adults-only titles. Radio Comix was formed by two former Antarctic Press employees, Elin Winkler-Suarez and Pat Duke. Two of the cancelled titles, Furrlough and Genus, both of which were long-running anthology titles, formed the backbone of the company, and helped provide a platform that allowed Radio Comix to add more titles and artists.

As of 2013, Furrlough is the longest-running anthology comic book at over 190 issues, and Genus is the longest-running adults-only comic book at over 90 issues. Other long-running titles include the adult anthology Milk at over 60 issues, and Mangaphile at 24 issues. As of 2006, Radio Comix has published over 400 comic book issues and a dozen trade paperbacks.

In 2001, Radio Comix created the Sin Factory imprint, to help distinguish its adults-only titles (such as Milk and Genus) from the general-audience titles.

In 2009, Radio Comix began publishing on their website several titles in a free to view webcomic format.
