Arch Enemy Entertainment is an independent comic book studio based in
Los Angeles, California, United States. It was founded in 2004 by writer William Wilson (G.I.JOE: Frontline and John Carpenter's The Snake Plisskin Chronicles) with the help of artist, Tone Rodriguez (John Carpenter's The Snake Plissken Chronicles and Violent Messiahs).
The creation of the company came about when the two founders came together and shared their thoughts and ideals about the comic book industry as a whole. Both of them wanted an environment where they could create the stories that they wanted to see and characters of their own creation. Both men agreed that this would allow a fresh and innovative voice to be heard, and for new and compelling ideas and storylines to reach the general public. Thus, Arch Enemy was born.
From this business model, the founders filled the ranks of the company with members who held similar ideals. As a whole, the mission statement of the company is to not only work on other people's comics, but to have the ability to create their own, and to tell the stories that they want to see told. The other mission of the company is to springboard new and emerging talent into the comic book world, and to help young artists and writers get a start in the competitive business of comic book making, giving them an opportunity to work in the industry. Many larger publishers require writers or artists to have a body of published work before they can work one something with their label on it, and Arch Enemy is a forum in which new talent can find its voice before moving on to other publishers.
Arch Enemy Entertainment launched its first comic book U.T.F., released in 2006 as a three issue mini-series published through Ape Entertainment.
With a wide arrary of content, Arch Enemy Entertainment is striving to set a new, innovative standard for creating comic books. Their goal is to win over fans, one book at a time.
