Ediciones La Cúpula was established in 1979 with the appearance of the first issue of the monthly
underground comic magazine, El Víbora, which was, for many years, the banner publication of the company.
The favorable economic yield of El Víbora allowed the creation of the first album collections, which compiled
the most interesting works published in the magazine. In 1991, the erotic comic magazine Kiss was launched.
It caught on immediately and soon became the market leader in its genre. Various related album collections were developed
at the same time and formed a part of our catalogue. As a consequence of Kiss's success, an English version destined
mainly for exportation (French Kiss) was created at the end of the 1990's.
In recent years, the editorial line of Ediciones La Cúpula has diversified, with particular focus on graphic novels. This effort has led to the incorporation of young authors, such as Joe Matt, Adrian Tomine, Johnny Ryan, Kevin Huizenga and many others, who have taken up the reins of the classic underground comic authors such as Robert Crumb and Gilbert Shelton, and their second generation, Peter Bagge, Daniel Clowes, Charles Burns, David Lapham and Beto and Jaime Hernández.
Special mention should be made of the complete works of Max, one of the most important authors in Spanish comics and winner of the National Illustration Award, in the collection Todo Max, as well as the celebrated work of Nazario.
The growing involvement of women in the creation of comics is also reflected in our catalogue, with the incorporation of the following authors: Debbie Drechsler, Alison Bechdel and Phoebe Gloeckner.
Lastly, new lines targeting a younger audience are currently being opened, with the manga (Yellow) and manhwa (Tarot café, Chunchu, Model...) series, as well as terror manga (Hideshi Hino and Junji Ito) and adult manhwa (Otomo, Tanaka, Yoshihiro Tatsumi and Byun Byung-Jun).
