The creators, who will join forces with the punk rock label to support the creator-owned scene, announced the new venture at WonderCon over the weekend.
"We teamed up as like-minded people who both came from music backgrounds. So we went and met with Epitaph Records and their subsidiary King's Road Merchandise," Niles told CBR.
"We are talking to them now about comics we will produce, a special line of comics yet to be named by the studio, that will be distributed through Epitaph."
Niles, who is best known as the writer of 30 Days of Night, said that he also struck up the deal because the entire comics industry is dependent on the success of Diamond Comic Distributors.
"We only have one distributor - one distributor that at any moment for any reason could go under. If they're strong now, great. If they're weak now - it doesn't matter. We have one distributor holding up our entire industry. I found it really scary," he explained.
Niles, Pizzolo and Epitaph are expected to finalise the deal soon.
