Working with talents such as Alan Moore, Matt Kindt, Jeff Lemire, Nate Powell, Craig Thompson, and many other award-winning creators, they continue to deliver unique, quality stories year after year.
Since 1997 Top Shelf has published more than 250 award winning comics and graphic novels. Their most recent accomplishment?
