Carnival Comics was founded by author and musician, Jazan Wild, in 2006. Prior to starting Carnival Comics Wild published three issues of his comic books series, Carnival of Souls, as well as a soundtrack CD of the same title through Markosia Enterprises and Perris Records.
After leaving Markosia, Wild worked with Gene Simmons at Simmons’ Comic Group Company. Wild was writing a title called Gene Simmons House of Horrors, until a scheduling issue led to the book being postponed and orders canceled. After an apparent falling out over this decision, Wild left Simmons Comics Group and formed Carnival Comics in 2006. On Halloween night of that same year Wild retitled the House of Horrors story he had written at Simmons Comic Group to Jazan Wild’s Funhouse of Horrors and released the book via a promotional download link at the Carnival Comics website. Over 229,000 copies of the Funhouse of Horrors debut title were downloaded.
