by Rich Koslowski
Top Shelf is proud to present a very unique comics project! Through a
series of never-before-seen interviews and rare photos,
documentary-maker Rich Koslowski reveals the horrifying true story
behind the Cartoon industry and our most celebrated cartoon actors --
the story that Hollywood doesn't want you to see. Told in the same style
as a Ken Burns documentary, with interviews of 'toon stars today as well
as historical "file footage" of the "early years," this work of fiction
will forever change the way you think of those beloved characters in the
white gloves. … Rich Koslowski has worked in the Animation and Comic
Book industry for the past 12 years. Best known for his three-time,
Eisner-nominated work on his self-published parody title "The 3 Geeks,"
this ground-breaking graphic novel is sure to appeal to everyone.
