To create comics and share them with the public. Knight and Thelemaque decided to pursue their life long dreams of bringing their stories to the public sphere and created Vision Artes Publishing (Vartes) where their tales and art could come to life and share with with people interested and who mutually loves comics.
Magna Ax created by Emmanuel Knight, and Altafreya Vx created by Gerard Thelemaque are comic stories that have existed with both created since childhood and have been in development for as of this November, 17 years. Wanting to test the waters with their stories before diving in, Knight and Thelemaque began working on one shots (a comic story where the solution and tale ends in the same book) of their comics. to test with readers. On 11/17/17 They introduced the Brand and online publisher Vartes where they published Magna Ax and Altafreya Vx under.
