Lunchroom Riot is a boutique comics press that places an emphasis on the foundational building blocks of any good stories: the characters. Character-driven stories are what made Lunchroom Riot publisher Adam Barnhardt fall in love with medium in the first place, and those stories are what you’ll find here.

From science-fiction to horror, fantasy, superheroes, and beyond, Lunchroom Riot will publish a variety of stories from Barnhardt, frequent collaborators, and other up-and-coming indie comics creators.


Lunchroom Riot-published titles are only currently available through our website or through local comic shops that order our titles directly from us. If you are a retailer looking to carry Lunchroom Riot titles, please email
