BOOM! Studios is an independent comic book publisher. It was founded in June 2005 with Zombie Tales #1. The company was named Wizard Magazine's Best New Publisher of 2005, only four months after their first book was published.
At the 2007 San Diego Comic Con BOOM! have announced they will be launching a new imprint, called ZOOM!, producing comics for children. They also announced the appointment of Mark Waid as Editor-in-Chief.
On January 3rd, 2008 BOOM! became the first comic book company to offer a digital download of a comic book on the day and date of its release, partnering with MySpace.com. As a result, the first issue sold out and went to second printing. Sales on issues four and five increased.
One year later, on January 6, 2009, BOOM! teamed with MySpace.com again to offer a free digital day-and-date release for HEXED along with the "5 for 500" program, sending five copies at no cost to the top 500 retailers in the Direct Market.
On March 4th, 2009 BOOM! Studios announced Mark Sable's latest series Unthinkable. To promote the launch of the book, BOOM! created an Altered Reality Game (also known as an Alternate Reality Game or ARG) to be played during the time pre-orders are due.
