The main publishing line of Chamber Shell Publishing is Nautilus Comics. We love the art form of comics because like the nautilus, it too is an medium that utilizes "chambers" or panels to explore the depths. The nautilus fills the chambers of its shell with fluid, changing the amount to adjust its buoyancy allowing it to go up or down at will. Comics works in a similar way, filling its panels with different types of content, be they images or words, to enjoy either light and fun ideas or to explore deeper, rarely seen truths.

While we do superhero, fantasy, sci-fi, and action comics, we tend to favor genres most other publishers shy away from and are harder to find in comic shelves such as romance, historical fiction, non-fiction, and slice-of-life. And several of our books have won awards and/or have been created by award-winning creators, so that doesn't hurt either. More than choosing what will sell, we choose to publish books we want to see because there aren't any books like them out there.

Most importantly, Nautilus Comics features titles that are spearheaded by people who just flat out love comics.

When two people first fall in love, they feel like the whole world revolves around their relationship. Like Adam and Eve, they feel like a Garden of Eden was created just for them. And when they ght or break up, it feels like every decision they made about each other forever changed the world for the worst.

But what if it wasn’t just a feeling? What if divine forces were literally placing the fate of the world on certain relationships? That’s exactly what happens to Jon and Celine, recently reacquainted childhood friends who enter a whirlwind romance. They don’t realize it, but angels and demons have wagered control of the world on the outcome of their relationship. It doesn’t help that Jon’s friends Greg and Mike team up with Celine’s friends Lea and Cathy to try to break the couple up in order to bring things back to the old status quo, and to prevent the couple from playing matchmaker with them. This not only puts Jon and Celine’s relationship to the test, but the very fate of love in the world is made to hang in the balance.

Love is always sweet in the beginning. But what happens to your world after you leave Eden?

After Eden is one of the earliest works of award-winning comic creator Arnold Arre. This updated version features new dialogue and scenes that brings the story closer to Arre’s intended vision, remastering an old fan-favorite story for a new generation of readers and lovers.

Martial Law Babies is a thought-provoking graphic novel that explores a whole generation of Filipinos through the eyes of Allan as he watches how his life and the lives of his friends change throughout the years.  It’s a story that asks why the generation dubbed “Martial Law Babies” seem to have a desire to leave the country and are full of disillusionment and apathy.

This work of fiction does not look at the martial law years per se, but rather examines the generation that was too young to fully experience martial law, and how asks how growing up without a clear cause to fight for has shaped their choices in the subsequent years.
