It was founded in 1996 by Andy Brown in Montréal as a literary publisher. Over time Brown shifted it publishing activities to graphics and by 2011 it was publishing graphic material only. In the same year he moved to Wolfville in Nova Scotia. Brown also expanded his line under the imprint BDANG to include English translations of the works of Québec creators.

During its early days Conundrum and Brown benefitted from a close association with Drawn and Quarterly and Chris Oliveros.

Dave Collier found Andy Brown “unique in comics” in that unlike the publishers of Fantagraphics and Drawn and Quarterly Brown took an active role in editing the books he published.
