AdHouse Books is an independent comic book publisher based in Richmond, Virginia. It was founded in 2002 by graphic designer Chris Pitzer. Its small annual output and high-end production values have earned it the nickname "The Boutique Juggernaut."

Adhouse is known primarily as a publisher of graphic novels, beginning with 2002's Pulpatoon: Pilgrimage, and continuing with books like Salamander Dream, and Mort Grim. This output includes the Project series of themed anthologies: Project Telstar, Project Superior, and Project Romantic. In 2004, AdHouse announced that it was expanding to include the traditional comic book format. The AdHouse line now includes several ongoing comic book series, such as Skyscrapers of the Midwest. In 2005, Adhouse began to publish art books, with James Jean's Process Recess, and a forthcoming PulpHope: The Art of Paul Pope.
