Top Shelf Productions: Live!
The imprint sounds like it is doing a lot of great work, particularly with March. March is a three volume series written by Congressman John Lewis and his aide Andrew Aydin with art by Nate Powell.

The first volume was selected by Michigan State University, Marquette University and Georgia State University as summer reading for incoming freshman. It is also part of the ‘NYC Reads 365’ program.

Kyle Higgins also had a lot of good advice:
From Concepts to Comics: A Conversation About Editing in the Comics Industry

Until next time!
