    The company began in 1995 publishing creator-owned comics and has continued to do so. In 2001 they began to publish works based on open license properties as well as collecting a notable collection of licensed properties, they have also brought back a number of public domain pulp characters such as Secret Agent X, The Phantom Detective, Lady Domino, and Airboy.

    Moonstone is now the owner of classic properties such as The Avenger, Doc Savage, and the sci-fi cult classic Buckaroo Banzai. They secured the rights to the toy line Captain Action and publish comics based on that character, as well as the character Lady Action. Additionally, they publish several titles based upon the White Wolf RPG universe World of Darkness and offer several other titles available in many genres including action, horror, thriller, mystery, western and humor.

    One of their innovations is a new style of presenting graphic stories which they call Wide-View, which consists of basically a text story situated above and below a thick strip of art with which runs though the middle, no word balloons are used. This style is currently seen in the title The Spider, The Avenger, and now The Phantom.
