About Rising Sun Comics 

Rising Sun Comics is an independent publisher known for its past work in fan comics. In 2013 Hawk Graves, an Otis College of Art and Design graduate that has worked in both toys and comics since 2002, relaunched the company with a new vision of creating unique comics driven by the artists and writers that work on them. 




Rising Sun Comics was created by Jamar Miller in 2008. Jamar has eleven degrees, is financially successful, and has a happy marriage with two children in Japan and Florida. Jamar is a long time GI Joe fan and started Rising Sun Comics as a way to share his stories that expanded the GI Joe Universe. Rising Sun Comics has since released over 50 issues of comics.


Rising sun comics had began to expand in a few short years other divisions where established in Japan, New Zealand, and the United kingdom. The divisions where reformed in 2013 to be under one company.

Jamar was inspired by GI Joe characters created for the UK Battle Action Force series as well as Joe characters from other countries and toy lines. He has written a complex story that interweaves multiple stories from different series. Some of these story lines reference comics from as far back at the 1980’s.

The uniqueness of these international characters and the adventure waiting in their untold stories is Rising Sun Comic's main goal. An additional goal is to help foster up and coming talents, and help them get exposure and notability in the comic field. So that one day these talents might get their foot in the door with the bigger, for profit companies. Jamar has volunteered his time doing this and accepts no money under any circumstances. Rising Sun Comics fan related books is a NON PROFIT ENDEAVOR.
