original comic illustrations

Our Story Began in Comics

Cold Beverage Studios was founded by a comic artist and a fantasy author. We rapidly grew to dozens of talented illustrators, animators and colorists and formed the largest English-language webcomic network in the world with 115 titles and more than 70,000 readers a day. Our flagship title LadyStar: Jessica Hoshi and the Ajan Warriors had a worldwide audience of more than 160,000 readers and 1.2 million page views.

The LadyStar™ comics went on to become one of our all-time top-selling book series.

mobile game development

Games: The Studio Specialty

Our team has developed or co-developed more than 40 commercial interactive titles that have been played by millions of fans around the world. We assembled the team that delivered more than 3000 production-quality color originals in under 11 months for a PC platformer game in 2012. We also did all the art for the encore title, which rang up thousands of unit sales on Steam® in three days. Our top Flash titles Juuathur Gatecrash, Mermaid Princess and Fairy Castle Dress-Up were played more than 1.7 million times on hundreds of online arcades.

Our developers have commercial experience with Unity, Unreal Engine, Gamemaker Studio, Godot, Java, HTML5, Canvas and WebGL.

Animation is Magic

When one considers what animators accomplished almost 100 years ago with pencils, hand-painted characters and multiplane cameras, it's not hard to imagine what is possible with the technology and tools we have today. Cold Beverage Studios has been at the forefront of indie animation since the invention of Flash almost 25 years ago.

Our senior artists have years of experience producing hand-drawn linear animation and synchronized soundtracks utilizing Toonboom, Flash and Animate and numerous other industry standard tools. We have been producing broadcast-quality episodic animation for popular YouTube channels, character features, digital advertising and games since 1999.
