Radical Publishing opened its new offices in Los Angeles this week and hosted a star studded gala to celebrate the new home for the comic and film development divisions.

The guest listed included such celebrities as Wesley Snipes, Ryan Phillippe, Gene Simmons, Diamond Dallas Page, Len Wiseman, Gary Smith, Tim Sullivan, David Schiff, Molly MOdden, Tammy FIsher, Sam Sarkar, Nick Simmons, Steve Niles, Arthur Suydam, Patrick Reilly Doug Sirois, and Jim Steranko.

“Today marks a celebration of many things for the company, not just an expansion to new offices,” said Radical Publishing’s President Barry Levine, who began his career as one of rock’s top photographers before becoming a music supervisor, film producer and comic book publisher; “not only having our books receive uniformly rave reviews across the industry and in the mainstream press, but we recently took Diamond Distribution’s Gem Award for Best New Publisher of the Year after only eight months on the stands. Things have been going great at Radical Publishing, and 2009 will see things only get better.”

The company took the time to announce some new products, and look back on how the company was launched to the more than 400 attendees.

Congrats to Radical for moving ahead with its many developments, here’s hoping in these economic times that the company thrives.

Radical Publishing’s Director of Marketing Gianluca Glazer sent us a collection of images snapped at the event.
