Universal Content Productions Launches UCP Graphic

Universal Content Productions

UCP Graphic is a new initiative from Universal Content Productions focused on publishing graphic novels from “up-and-coming talent.”

The first release will be Proctor Valley Road from Alex Child and Grant Morrison who is co-writing the first five issues. BOOM! Studios is publishing the series.

Proctor Valley Road is about a group of teenage girls suspected in the disappearance of several teenage boys in a 1964 California beach town.

The comic imprint is all about intellectual property and using platforms to develop it across media. Comics could be turned into film, television, or podcasts.

UCP is behind the Netflix adaptation of The Umbrella Academy which is published by Dark Horse and producing Resident Alien for SyFy, another Dark Horse series.
