Arcana Studios Inc. is a Canadian entertainment company started by Sean Patrick O’Reilly in 2004. Arcana began as a graphic novel publishing studio and is now Canada’s biggest comics publisher, with over 300 titles in our library. In 2010, we opened our animation division, and we’ve since produced works such as The Clockwork Girl, Kagagi: The Raven and Pixies. Our current production is Howard Lovecraft and the Frozen Kingdom, the first of a trilogy based on our comic series of the same name.
Arcana’s employees make us a ‘farm to fork’ company as we produce all of our content with our incredibly talented staff.
