The Panoptic Press began in 2013 as the crux of collaboration between Steven Arenius, Justin M. Knipper, and Bile. In addition to the array of comics and content available here on our site, we also specialize in handmade, limited-run printed media, toys, and apparel. With its members based in Rochester, NY and Tokyo, Japan, The Panoptic Press is continuously expanding our vision of sequential storytelling and print while collecting the very best of our work in our flagship anthology series, Panoptic Presents.
