Ten Years of Top Shelf

Top Shelf Productions is celebrating its first decade in printing some of the most interesting and innovative work anywhere. In this recent interview, Chris Staros talks about how he met Best-Guy-Ever Brett Warnock:

“Brett and I met through the mail, when he became aware of The Staros Report, and sent me some samples of his books for review,” Staros said. “I really dug his books, as they were very cool and impeccably designed, but what really made me remember him, as a person, was his cover letter. Here was a hepcat with no attitude, who just dug cool comics no matter what corner of the industry they came from. In other words, a really cool, involved person who wasn’t an elitist — the kind of person I’ve always been drawn to.”

Tangentially: Warnock’s design work with Matt Kindt on Alan Moore/Melinda Gebbie’s Lost Girls was recently nominated for an Eisner Award.
