About Us

Fracture comics is an independent comic company founded by writers Joe Thompson and Christopher Adams.  Upon meeting in college Joe and Chris immediately hit it off, discovering simlarities in interest such as Comics, Manga, Games, and Anime.


After spending time going for their Master's Degrees in their prospective fields, they decided to embark on a quest to create a comic book universe.  This meant not simply one comic, but two based in the same world; thus, Hellfire and Death of Darkness were born, but it would not end there.


Each comic would be drawn in a different style, the style of American comic books and Japanese Manga respectively.  The idea being that these two mediums are ripe for inspiration and storytelling, but too often do fans get bogged down over which is better.  Fracture Comics seeks to bridge that gap, delivering engaging stories told through both mediums, but occuring in one world.  That's right!  If you want to get the full effect of the universe it means diving into both stories and allowing yourself to be surprised by what you find.  This is Hellfire.  This is Death of Darkness.


Welcome to the dark universe of Fracture Comics!

Joe is a screenwriter by trade based in San Francsico Ca. Joe has now adapted his style for comics, working long and hard to see the story of Kane Kage come to life.​
