Who We Are

Last Ember Press (LEP) is an independent comic publisher focused primarily on fantasy themed or fantasy adjacent titles. We strive to be inclusive and progressive in our approach to storytelling, and sincerely hope that comes across in our various projects.

Founded by Brant Fowler, Lisa Fowler (Moore) and John Wilson in February 2015, the creators behind LEP have a combined 30+ years of experience in the comic industry from every side and angle. We’re all also lifelong fans in one way or another, and we hope both of those factors show in the work that we produce.

We hope that you find something that speaks to you at LEP, and we can’t wait to take this journey with you.

“From a single ember, an endless fire can grow.”
