About

Markosia Enterprises Ltd

Founded in 2005, Markosia Enterprises Ltd is a multi-faceted publishing company specializing in sequential story-telling. From well known properties like King Kong and Starship Troopers to creator owned works like Dark Mists, The Lexian Chronicles, The Young Sherlock Holmes Adventures, Midnight Kiss and Serpent Wars, Markosia has become known for quality art and stories.

Markosia have recently embarked on some exciting projects away from the comic book market also, including major contributions towards the acclaimed Doppleganger Chronicles series by G. P. Taylor that was expertly adapted by Tony Lee and superbly illustrated by Dan Boultwood. We have also entered the gaming and apps world, with Growing Up Enchanted now available as a game for download via iTunes, the first of many such projects coming to you soon. Our books now feature prominently on iTunes, iBooks, Comics + and DriveThruComics, and will be featuring on many other platforms over the next year, so watch this space for more announcements.

All our publications are or will be available on this website upon their release, directly from us via the Markosia Store. You can purchase everything that we have released, including special editions, signed copies, variants, and merchandise. If you think that we’ve missed something please drop us a line and we’ll put it right.

Keep in touch with us for the latest developments here or on our Facebook page which you can access from the Home page, as well as MySpace and Twitter.

Frequently Asked Questions 

Q – Do you ship outside the UK?

A – Yes we do. Please note that shipping costs could be significantly higher depending on where you live, so if you have any questions please contact us before purchasing anything and we will endeavour to answer swiftly. In some cases it may take up to two weeks for your goods to arrive, depending on where you live, so please be patient and contact us if it has taken longer than this.

Q – What are the shipping costs?

A – For orders within the UK each graphic novel will typically cost £2 and then £1 for each additional graphic novel ordered. Comics will cost £1.50p plus £1 for each additional comic. The exception is for the larger, heavier books which may cost more due to the extra weight.

For international orders each graphic novel will cost £5 to ship plus £4 for each additional graphic novel ordered. As with the UK shipping this may change if the book that you are ordering is larger and heavier than a typical graphic novel. Comics are £3 and £2 for each additional order.

If you aren’t sure about the shipping please get in touch.

Q – Can I get better shipping rates for multiple orders, both for the UK and International orders?

It depends on the quantity and weight, but either way we would be happy to get exact rates if you contact us and let us know what you’d like to order and where the items will ship to. We want to do everything we can to ensure that you only pay what you need to.
