Avatar Press started out as a noted publisher of T&A centered comics. However, unlike most of their competitors, they had uncensored nudity, sex, and gore on nearly every page. Later they moved away from that by licensing franchises like Robocop and Nightmare on Elm Street and publishing related miniseries, and by offering big-name authors the chance to publish creator-owned works with no content restrictions whatsoever.

Recently they opened up another imprint, called Boundless, which started with a refreshed Lady Death comic, and Avatar announced that others among their original T&A line (unseen for a number of years) will be reappearing as part of that imprint as well.
