Gorilla Comics was a short-lived American comic book imprint launched in 2000 by creators Kurt Busiek, Tom Grummett, Stuart Immonen, Karl Kesel, Barry Kitson, George Pérez, Mark Waid, and Mike Wieringo. Characters were creator-owned, and books originally were published through Image Comics.
The founders intended to finance the company through a comics-themed website, eHero.com, which proved unsuccessful. This left creators financing their own books, and only a handful of issues saw print. Only Shockrockets and Tellos completed their initial storylines. The last Gorilla Comics book, Superstar, consisted of a single issue printed in 2001.
Shockrockets was later reprinted by Dark Horse Comics. Further Tellos stories were self-published directly through Image. Empire was later completed as a miniseries at DC Comics.
