Troma is a fiercely independent film studio with an impressive catalogue of horror and exploitation titles. The brand has been around since 1974. It was co-founded by Lloyd Kaufman and his college friend Michael Herz. It is now one of the largest and longest standing independent film studios in the US. Through the Troma brand, we’ve been introduced to a series of cult icons like The Toxic Avenger and Sergeant Kabukiman. Troma has also served as a jumping off point for genre film celebrities and household names alike. Writer/Director James Gunn (Gaurdians of the Galaxy) got his start working with Troma and splatter master Eli Roth began his career acting in Troma pictures.
Today, Team Troma has announced that they will be releasing the 11-issue Toxic Avenger comic from the early ’90s as a digital download. The books will see release under the newly established Troma Comics label. This is the first time the Toxic Avenger comic series has been made available to fans since it was initially published in 1991. It is also the first time the books have been available digitally. The comics are now available for purchase via the Troma Shop. As a special ‘thank you’ to fans, the comics are being made available through the end of the year at the price point they sold for in 1991!
