Sirius Comics, also known as New Sirius Productions and Prelude Graphics, was a small comic book publisher based in Queens, New York, that operated from 1985 to 1986. Owned and operated by brothers Juan Collado (Editor-in-Chief),[1] Leopaldo Collado (President),[2] and Jose Collado (Operating Director),[3] the company specialized in fantasy comics and science fiction comics.

The company started out based in Long Island City and later moved to Woodside.

Much of the material published by the company was packaged by David Campiti's Creative Concepts via Campiti & Associates.[4] Notable creators connected with Sirius/New Sirius/Prelude Graphics include Campiti, Mark Beachum, Rick Bryant, Bo Hampton, Mark Martin, Bill Oakley, and Roger McKenzie.[5]
