Custom Comics!

At Velvet Leaf Publishing, we not only publish the Lab Bratz science humor webcomic, we also create dynamic and effective custom science comics and comics-related material for biotechnology companies, academic institutions, trade magazines and personal use.

Custom comics are based on your brand, property, or concept and are created specifically to suit your needs. Custom comics can include our Lab Bratz characters or we can create new characters for you, even ones based on yourself or people at your business. Whether you are looking for:

  • An exciting and affordable promotional item

  • A comic for your company newsletter or PowerPoint presentation

  • A cartoon to reflect the theme of your annual meeting

  • A custom YouTube video or even

  • An entire illustrated advertising campaign, we can do it!


Let Velvet Leaf Publishing make your company website or advertising campaign pop with funny and relevant humor! Lab Bratz writer Ed Dunphy is a Biological Sciences professional with over 30 years of diversified laboratory experience and numerous academic publications. He has been publishing Lab Bratz online and in magazines since 2005 and is acknowledged as a leading science humorist. Helber Soares is an accomplished, versatile artist comfortable working in multiple artistic styles and is an expert in animation.

  • Make tradeshow & conference giveaways (SWAG!!)

  • Develop educational tools

  • Provide fresh, original website and newsletter content


Web Content

Your web site is an important channel for communicating with current customers, investors, potential clients and employees. The main reason you devote your time and effort to developing and maintaining a business web site is to increase traffic to your business on a regular basis. To do this, a web site needs to be useful and interesting. Does your web site give a user a reason to come back in the future?

Humorous and entertaining cartoons not only break up text with vivid color, but they provide interesting content for your web visitors. This allows you more of an opportunity to market your products and services, build your brand, and increase the buzz about your web site. Updated content is also a great way to improve your website’s Search Engine Optimization (SEO). For a reasonable fee, you may license any of the Lab Bratz cartoons in our archives up through the most recent episode.

For Publications

The same holds true for printed publications. Many surveys indicate that the comic section of a newspaper is the first section that is read. Placing our cartoons inside your publication keeps your reader’s attention and brings them back for more!



How long are the comics?

We work with you to determine your needs for each custom comic. Some ideas may be best summed up with a single panel comic, though most comics work best with four panels. If your idea runs much longer, you may want to consider several comic strips, an entire Custom Comic Page or even a Custom Comic Mini-Book.

What if I'm interested in an animated episode?

Lab Bratz artist Helber Soares specializes in animation and we use his studio exclusively for all animation projects. We work with a number of musicians and voice actors to provide the perfect soundtrack for your animated episode.

In what format do I receive the Custom Comic?

We send your custom comic artwork digitally in the following two formats:

- (1) High-Resolution Digital File suitable for print media

- (2) Low-Resolution Digital File for Social Media Sharing

We create print ready files. These files will be sent to you and you can take them anywhere and print them. If you prefer, we can also print your comics on high quality paper for you and ship them anywhere in the world for an additional charge.

What does it cost?

Velvet Leaf Publishing offers some of the most competitive rates in the comics and advertising industries. Rates vary based on the size and complexity of the project. Please contact us for details and pricing.
