PLUS Multimedia Production Company, UPROAR Comics
Uproar Comics are based in Derry, Northern Ireland. With a focus on production, publishing and services, the company has expanded rapidly from its humble origins – Started in the summer of 2011 by a group of passionate hobbyists, the company produced its debut release – the Award winning comic series ‘Zombies Hi’. With climbing sales and critical success, the series continued, and the Uproar team began hosting workshops to share all they had learned along the way.
Officially established in October of 2011, the company would continue to grow and evolve to cater to new markets. We believe in the power of stories, the power of words and the power of pictures. We have a ravenous appetite for all forms of storytelling and we employ the very best home grown talent that Northern Ireland has to offer. Whether it’s creating comics, brochures, apps, video games, animations or workshops, our team have the skill to meet any needs.
In the 3 years since its birth, Uproar Comics have worked with a number of prestigious clients including the BBC, NI Screen, The Western Trust, Culture Company, Public Health Agency and the European Business Network.
