fbpx Arcana | The Centre for Digital Media


Arcana was founded in 2004 after CEO and founder, Sean O’Reilly self-published Kade issue #1, debuting it at San Diego Comic Con, where Stan Lee himself signed a copy, wishing Arcana luck in its journey. Since then, the company has grown and established itself through using a transmedia approach to developing content and building brands. It is now home to one of the world’s largest libraries of graphic novels, comics and characters – with over 200 original intellectual properties, 300 graphic novels and thousands of characters. Arcana is also the only Canadian comic publisher to be chosen to sponsor Free Comic Book Day and has proudly done so since 2004. 

 Pushing past the boundaries of just publishing, Arcana uses its library to create unique worlds and engaging stories through exploring the realm of feature films, 3D Animated features, television series, toys, and more. Arcana has now moved into digital publishing and continues to grow as a premier content provider and intellectual property owner. This branded story world that Arcana has created can be found in over 15 countries, translated into over 7 languages.
