BIG Comics & Graphic Novels

In addition to film, animation, and broadcast television, BIG Studios also functions as a boutique publisher of indie comics and artisan graphic novels. Through our collaboration with Eisner winning writer Mike Baron, we publish premium graphic novels featuring superheroes, science-fiction, supernatural horror stories, action-thrillers, and more.

Here's a list of our current and upcoming titles.

Florida Man


Mike Baron & Various Artists

Gary Duba and his gal Krystal epitomize the quintessential Florida Man and Florida Gal. Eisner winning writer Mike Baron delivers comedy gold in a graphic novel inspired by his series of novels. Successfully crowdfunded in 2020 and published in 2021, the smash-hit graphic novel was later adapted with new artwork and new pages and published monthly by American Mythology in the summer of 2022.


Mike Baron, Joe Arnold, Jeff Slemons

It's the critically acclaimed, gritty graphic novel, with a completely different street-level hero... a female cop. Thin Blue Line  follows rookie officer Valeria Baca as mobs burn down city hall, forcing the her and her partner to improvise on the run, relying only on their training and wits as the city crumbles.

Successfully raising six-figures in crowdfunding capital in 2021, with the help of police and first responders supporters, the book was distributed in 2022. Antarctic Press later published it as an over-sized one-shot comicbook in May 2024

Thin Blue Line
Private American


Mike Baron & Richard Bonk

America’s southern border is a WAR ZONE! Overrun with lawless coyotes flowing across the Rio Grande, bringing in weapons, smuggling drugs, and trafficking sex slaves! Border Patrol agents are overwhelmed… but one man takes matters into his own hands. This book was successfully crowdfunded in 2022, after being actively suppressed by activist media, and some crowdfunding platforms due to the political topic of the border crisis.


Mike Baron & Pat Broderick

No one goes to the old silver mine. There’s something there… something in the shadows. And when a villainous posse arrives, all the secrets of the town of Cobb’s Gap will be exposed. In this weird western, the monster isn't quite what you think it is.

Described as a Sergio Leone & H.P. Lovecraft mash-up, this book was the number one crowdfunded project at Fund My Comic in 2023 and published in the fall that same year.
