Vincent Ferrante created Witch Hunter in 1976 and first had his adventures published as a comic strip in Comic Culture magazine from 1993-1994. He self-published a Witch Hunter convention special comic book in the ‘90s which he sold and used for promotion at a number of shows and signings. Vincent formed Monarch Comics in 1995. He secured comic book legend Frank Brunner (Dr. Strange, Howard the Duck, Creepy, Eerie, Vampirella, and numerous fantasy art books) as one of Witch Hunter’s regular cover artists as part of assembling a staff of veteran and up-and-coming artists with a love of classic horror, superheroes, and pulp adventure novels. After releasing the Witch Hunter 48-page 1st Issue Special to introduce the hero and company online and at conventions in 2008, Monarch Comics began publishing Witch Hunter on a quarterly schedule in 2009. Monarch Comics has made Witch Hunter available through a number of print format and digital distributors like DriveThruComics, ComicsPlus, and ComicsFix in addition to selling it through monarchcomics.com and select comic book stores, is adding several titles to its line prior to distributing through comic book stores at which point Witch Hunter will be published bimonthly, exhibits annually in the publishers section at the New York Comic Con, and is a guest of exhibitors like Secret Identity Podcast at other shows.
