About Shot in the Dark Comics
Shot in the Dark Comics started out as “Two Guys Comics” with two guys, a huge passion for comics and a dream. Frank Dunbar had been drawing and creating comic book ideas since he was sixteen. Gene Tipton had always had a deep love for comics and had been writing short stories and other forms of literary art for as long as he could remember. It seemed only natural when these two first met in the summer of 2001, that something exciting would happen.
Two Guys Comics was the result of that meeting and over the next few years Frank and Gene had tons of fun creating comic book ideas and juts hanging out doing the things that normal guys their age do..well, ok, that last part, maybe not so much.
The kind of guys who never really grew out of having any kind of fun, Frank and Gene would take a break from the grind of their regular jobs and comic creating to do all sorts of crazy things, like laser tag, squirt gun fights, and extremely challenging scavenger hunts along with Frank’s awesome daughter, Kate.
Although Frank and Gene still maintained regular and at times grueling day jobs, they continued to pursue comics as a dream.
After the Baltimore Comic Convention of 2007 Frank and Gene Began to take their business a bit more seriously and changed the name from Two Guys Comics to Shot in the Dark Comics because of the presumed ‘Shot’ they were taking by getting involved, full force in the comic publishing business.
We knew there were tons of talented people out there that would not likely have a fair opportunity through the larger companies and we knew that we could provide equal or superior quality art and story than any other competitor because we search out the talent regardless of whether they are known or published, and we are eager and have never become complacent.
Frank has since left the business for personal reasons and due to family illness but he still keeps Shot in the Dark in spirit.
We now have incredibly talented individuals working with us all over the country and the world and we have a few contracts even to turn Horror Novels into comic/graphic novel adaptations. We have contracted with Nicholas Grabowsky who wrote Halloween IV, and 2007 sci-fi book of the year "The Everborne". We have a contract with him to adapt each of the short stories in his novel Red Wet Dirt, into comic format. We have also contracted with Vince Churchill, author of the Buthcer’s Bride and other Sci-fi and horror tales, to adapt his sci’fi thriller novel, The Blackest Heart into a graphic novel.
We have developed a unique universe and offer comics for all ages and genres from fun kids books, to mainstream superheroes to Crime Noir graphic Novels. Take a look and I’m sure you’ll find lots of comics you can’t live without.
